If our friends, family, neighbors all agree on something (it’s hard enough to get them to show up for a BBQ on time)…it is that Stefano’s is one of the best overall restaurant experiences the 18 miles of Long Beach Island has to offer.
Stefano’s family of restaurants currently hold both Chowderfest titles (New England and Manhattan), the LBI equivalent of being the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion…only with more brain cells and no steroid scandals. Like their chowder? They will give you the recipe! No secrets here folks, just good people and good cookin’. The menu is very broad with a focus on Italian with many varieties of seafood and meat dishes. The restaurant is BYOB making it an even greater value (especially if your family drinks wine by the gallon). The food is fantastic. Our favorite dish? The Veal Chesapeake, graced with a white sauce and lumps of crab. Ask for it over linguine or in its traditional format. Reservations are a must in season and every weekend.
Stefano (aka Stephen) is very proud of his original restaurant and he and his family are very involved making the service as good as the food. Even on the busiest of summer nights, don’t be surprised if you have the owner stopping by your table to see how everything is. That is commitment, and that is a sign of a true foodie.Stefano's Seafood
