Trendy Italian Trattoria with great atmosphere in a contemporary shaped building with high ceilings (or as I call it, the sextagon of deliciousness). A wonderful selection of appetizers, great pasta dishes and main courses provide a wide variety for all tastes, at reasonable to moderate prices. As a foodie, anytime a place names a dish after itself, I must try it…by law. At Pinziminio, the house specialty is the Pinziminio sauce, which is their spin on a puttanesca sauce (if you don’t know what that is click here for a definition). I usually ask for it by the quart. This place also does my favorite Italian comfort food, Pasta Carbonara, better than anyone south of Little Italy (or east of South Philly). If you’ve never tried it, this would be a very good place to give it a go.

But loving a restaurant involves more than just loving the cooking. The people that run the place could often make or break it. The whole Pinziminio family, from the owners Jim and Karen to the staff, are one of the friendliest crews in Ocean County. This place is truly a labor of love for all who work there!

Reservations are a must, this place is popular in season and out!

    This has become one of two fine dining musts for us. The food is excellent; ambiance is fantastic; service great; price very affordable. The owners, no matter how busy the place is, always check in to make sure everything is to our liking. If LBI is your place — and even if it isn’t — you owe it to yourself to visit Pinziminio’s — we did a few years back and have been going back time and time again.

    Our family had a wonderful dinner this past weekend! The eggplant is light and flavorful and is something we order everytime we go to Pinziminio! The seafood risotto was creamy with lobster and scallops that melted in my mouth. Chicken rollatini was cooked to order and was outstanding, tender and flavorful. Everything was delivered to the table hot and the presentation was beautiful. We enjoyed eating on the outdoor patio and never felt rushed or crowded as we have at many other LBI restaurants!! Mangia!!
