This Italian restaurant was established in 2016, is family-owned and operated, and specializes in authentic Italian fine dining and catering. Their Fettuccine Alfredo is absolutely fantastic. I love it.

What restaurant made the "best of List", according to bestofnj.com in Ocean County?

Cordi's Italian Gourmet in Brick is the only Italian Restaurant to make it to the list. Cordi's is located at 2140 Rt. 88. Congratulations to Cordi's Italian Gourmet for being one of the "best" in Ocean County.

Several items on their menu are our friend's favorites. Here are some of their most popular appetizers and dishes. Appetizers that everyone loves is their Broccoli Rabe and their Italian Long Shots with Romano Cream Sauce. It's so, so good.

Their pasta dishes are amazing and when I take the family to Cordi's pasta is huge on their list. They love their Cavatelli and their Linguini and Clams. And, we can't forget about their steak and salmon. I can see why it made the list, scrumptious.

It's not just the food, it's the atmosphere, also. It's so quaint and smells delicious when I walk in every time.

Thank you, bestofnj.com for putting these lists together and finding the best of the best in New Jersey. Bestofnj.com nailed it with this one. Check out some of the other Ocean County Italian Restaurants that made the list.
