Stella Marina offers fine Italian cuisine, an extensive wine list and an intimate ambiance overlooking the ocean at Asbury Park. Situated right on the boardwalk next to the old Casio building this restaurant is destined to become one of the hot spots on the Jersey Shore.
It has a large open room on the first floor and another on the second floor, each with their own expansive white marble top bars. Plenty of glass with ocean views and an outside deck upstaris for the summer months.
Offering interesting selectons from apps. salads, pizza, pasta and main courses, my wife and I shared an arugula salad ($10), a shrimp dish ($23) and bronzino ($25) then shared a lemon tart for desert ($7). Everything was delicious. For drinks we had a total of three glasses of Italian Barbara at ($8) per glass. The total bill about $95 before tip was a very fair
price considering the overall dinning experience.
The service was very good considerating that they just opened for business last Monday.
Overall this is a first class restaurant where you can just go to hang at one of the beautiful bars and enjoy a few apps. and spend very little or you can fine dine and break the bank with one of their cellar selections of wine. They are already seeing a nice crowd of patrons just by work of mouth. Their web site is not up yet but should be soon.
In any event this restaturant will be THE place to be in Asbury Park come next summer -guaranteed!
