There aren’t that many fancy date-night restaurants in Sea Isle City, but if you want to go out and have a nicer meal on the island, it should be at La Finestra. It’s an Italian spot right on the water with lots of classics (focus on the pasta and seafood dishes) and a candle-lit dining room that’s best used for a summertime date night. After you finish sharing the pappardelle with short rib ragu, you and the only person you trust to put sunscreen on your back without missing any spots can head to the beach and watch the stars while “Summer Nights” plays somewhere in the distance.
