The Jersey Shore isn’t just a place full of big hair, extreme tans, and believing saltwater taffy can be a meal. OK, there is plenty of that, but there are also some really great spots for traditional Italian food too. With the classic red-and-white checkered tablecloths and family photos on every wall, this welcoming spot in Stone Harbor does it all - from homemade pasta and cheeses to savory desserts like Torta della Nonna. When you’re on day three of fried shrimp, hot dogs, and getting funnel cake sugar off your favorite shirt, this place will really hit the spot.
