N/A= A casual dining eatery, not rated as a fine dining restaurant
Located off Route 9 in Toms River in an old strip mall, don't be dissuaded by your initial reaction to the location and the decor, be seated and you will be ready for an enjoyable classical Italian dining experience of affordably priced selections prepared with tasty fresh ingredients.
The restaurant is relatively small with 25 tables set with white linen and very modest silverware. On busy weekend evenings the small waiting area can get crowded.
The Northern Italian menu comes with a modest selection of traditional Italian dishes complemented by several daily specials of diverse and more upscale dishes.
The Pisacreta's strive to use top ingredients such as olive oils from Italy, as well as locally sourced fresh vegetables and fish --- prepared and cooked in separate pans.
The dining experience starts off with a less than impressive beginning as the server presents a serving of uninspiring bread accompanied by packets of diner styled butter. However, from there the dining experience improves with well prepared salads, appetizers, entrees and desserts.
Reservations are not accepted for parties under 6, but you can call up to half an hour ahead to put your name on the list.
Il Giardinello can accommodate private parties up to 90 people.
