Loving Linguini at Lorenzo’s Restaurant in Allenhurst!

When you live at the Jersey Shore, one thing you look forward to every summer is the constant stream of friends and family visiting from North Jersey. Last night the Jersey Shore Specialist’s cousins were in town – and there’s nothing better than laughs with them over a great bowl of pasta! We decided on Lorenzo’s Restaurant at 401 Main Street in Allenhurst.

We arrived at the restaurant and we were seated right away at a nice table for six. We decided as a group to order apps for the table to share – we started off with the Butcher Block Antipasto, which is a plate of imported Italian cheeses and meats with olives and artichoke hearts. Next up was a plate of mussels in a red sauce, which was fantastic! We also had some tender and delicious fried calamari, but we didn’t stop there – the eggplant rollatini was also delectable! All of the apps were great and plentiful.

Believe it or not, we still had room for our main courses! Between the six of us, we pretty much covered the menu as we all had a different dish. Here are some of the highlights: I had one of their nightly specials – veal, chicken, and shrimp francese with a side of pasta. This was a fantastic meal, and it was perfect because I couldn’t decide what I wanted and this covered all the bases. There were four other pasta dishes at the table: spaghetti puttanesca, shrimp scampi over linguini, fettuccine primavera with shrimp, and cappellini pomodoro. We also had an order of chicken scarpiello, which is a house specialty (and for good reason – it was scrumptious)! Everyone loved their dinners.

I usually don’t have room for dessert, and tonight was no different – but I could not resist a cannoli! I did not regret this decision – it was fresh and delicious. The rest of table had coffee, espresso, cappuccino, and a cheesecake to share.

What a wonderful dining experience! The service was great, the atmosphere was perfect for our little group, and of course the food was excellent. This is a BYOB establishment, and I do recommend it if you are ever in the area.
