Considering how good their bakery is - and all the reviews that I read, I went in predisposed to like it. Unfortunately, it didn't really hit the mark for me. Their pizza crust is outstanding - I'll give them that. But their pizza sauce was too sweet for my taste - which ruined to for me. Of course - that's... More

The menu is really nice. They have a lot of salads which are huge and can be shared. There were four of us and we chose a warm goat cheese salad which was dressed just perfectly. We also shared an order of bruschetta. We ordered a white pizza with olives. I'm usually very critical of pizza but I did enjoy... More

Been a while since I've been to Del Ponte's. Small but cozy restaurant. You can dine outside under cover in warmer weather. Great pizza, nice salads, tasty soups. Can't go wrong here. BYOB and friendly wait staff. Definitely going back. Go enjoy!

Was surprised by the variations of ingredients on the salad menu...fresh pear, strawberry, goat cheese, yum. Many specialized pizzas as well as toppings to make you favorite pie. Sauce tastes homemade and is a great accent to all the ingredients which are fresh. Staff was very considerate bringing us just balsamic vinegar for a dressing as well as the fact... More

A delicious pizza different from most that you will have. It has a distinct taste and a friendly atmosphere to dine in. The Antipasto that you can order along with the pie will fill you up for the evening and not break your piggy bank. A nice and different experience.

For me, the sauce and the crust of a pizza are the most important parts. Often, I find many pizza places really skimp on the sauce... but not here! I was thrilled to see that they are generous with the amount of sauce on their pizza, and that the crust is delicious....definitely made for me! The cheese was great and... More

My wife and I shared the generous-sized antipasto and had Pasquale pizza. The fresh basil, peppers, onions, and sausage pizza was very good. Dinner for two for $30. Can't beat the tastiness and the value. Putting this restaurant on my regular rotation list.

Del Ponte's Coal Fired in Bradley Beach, NJ is the best pizza near the shore area. The ingredients are top shelf and fresh. The serve staff is very friendly and informative. They have daily specials, like pasta, salads, wings, etc. The antipasto salads are terrific as well as the calzones. Excellent choices of toppings for the pizza. No slices, just... More

The best pizza on the jersey shore!!!! All completely fresh ingredients. It's like you're in Italy. Try the Vinny Pie or the Kalamata pie. The house salad is amazing as well. And among the best Fettucine Bolognese I've ever had! Seriously delicious- just get there early bc it gets packed quickly. And byob (there's a liquor store around the corner).
