I have been to Denino's several times and had a delicious meal each time. Tonight was not a good night. After being seated I waited and waited and waited some more for a server to take my order. Finally a young man came out of...the kitchen while on his cellphone and sat down at a table looking at his phone. After a couple of minutes he came over to me and asked if I was ready to order. He took my order and brought my beverage. He then went back to a table and back to his cell phone. Some time later he brought out my dinner. The chicken parm dinner was just so so. I have had chicken parm dinners there before which were very good, just not tonight. The entire time I was there the server was either in the kitchen or on his phone. After finishing dinner I had to call him over to the table to ask for the check as he was on his phone. Not once did he stop at the table and ask if I needed something or how the dinner was. I hope this was just one bad night as I enjoy Denino's. I think its time for the owners to take the cell phones away from the employees when they are working. Especially those employees that spend more time on their cell phones then they do on their customers.More

Deninos is right down the street from my house so we always order from there because our pizza is guaranteed to arrive hot. Truth be told....even cold their pizza is the best in ocean county....we are now permanent customers.

Not as good as we had heard. We are from northern jersey, so our pizza tastes are quite different. We weren’t so happy with this place, edible, but that was it.

I understand that times are tough, but I ordered, got there 15 min after the scheduled time. went in, paid, & was told I couldn't wait inside because it wasn't done. Not a problem, went out to sit in car and 15 min go by...& my wife goes in & the pie is sitting there. no apology & when we got home it was like day old cardboard. not going again, not worth it.More

Friends recommended the pizza at Denino’s and they were right on. Thin, properly baked to a nice crisp crust, pizza with great toppings. Pleasant staff and moderate prices. Highly recommend this out of the way restaurant.

The pizza is awesome. (although we just brought the family one weekend night and it was not as good as usual but everyone has an off night so I'll give them a pass). Where they lack is service. The servers are always chatting or on...looking at their phones. You can hear the kitchen ringing the bell for pickups multiple times. An upgrade from the paper plates when serving salads would be a nice touch. But, with that said, I'll go back.More

The pasta fagioli was just like my great aunt made! We had pizza as well and it was perfect! My husbands sausage on his half was real Italian sausage. Delish! Very crowded so get there early or be prepared to wait!
