We enjoyed The Oven so much that a we decided to share a quiet Valentine's Day locally. The Oven was our choice for good food at reasonable prices. Calamari with a delicious mild marinara sauce was a choice to share as an appetizer. A gently...dressed tossed green salad was next. My husband is a big fan of the eggplant Parmesan so stuck to his usual. I had delectable tender slices of veal in a lemony wine sauce with angel hair pasta on the side. We were too full for dessert but enjoyed the rest of the time shared with a glass of wine. It's a BYOB by the way.... Support your local community & enjoy a visit to the Oven!More

The Oven or it's sister restaurant , Lavallette Pizza create authentic Italian dishes that remind you of your grandparents house on Sunday afternoons. The rich aroma of tomato-basil flavor used in their sauces makes every dish a delicious surprise. On Christmas Eve we ordered a...tray of eggplant parmigiana for our family as a side dish to compliment the traditional meal. It was cheesy delicious, lightly delicate and overall wonderful. Antoinette and her son make every dish a delicious experience. A neighborhood favorite- winter or summer, it's always worth the trip.More

We stopped here for a late lunch and my family wanted some good pizza. We sat outside and had to ask twice to get waited on. The pizza was disappointing . Although the crust was good, it was very greasy. They do not serve beer...or wine but you can bring your own. I think this place is mainly a place for takeout pizza.More

Saturday night, 1 AM. Yes I am over the hill so I was fast asleep. Pounding on the front door, dogs going wild, what is it? Yes, it's the delivery man from the Oven Pizza lost and waking up the neighborhood looking for his missing...delivery stop. No apology for disturbing everyone just hopped in his car and took off. Called the next day to speak to the owner-he never bothered to call me back or apologize either. Next time I let the dogs out and let the delivery guy deal with my 170 pound Bernese Mountain dog. Good news is the dog loves pizza (hates delivery men though) . Don't know about the food but if the management and delivery drivers are any indication - stay far, far away.More

Have only had the pizza and it was very average. Not as long a wait for takeout as other pizzerias in town, however I would give the edge in taste to others. Still not a bad option for a quick meal or a pizza.

This is a nice little restaurant with good food. The server we had was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant is clean and prices are reasonable. They also have a patio where you can sit outside when the weather is nice. Plenty of parking in...the front. They are only a block in from the beach so it is convenient for getting some lunch. Nice place to eat..More

Best Pizza in Lavallette, along w excellent entrees. Unless you are with a small group much better to take out. Get the sausage and mushroom, slightly well done so that the crust has a moderate crispness to it ... You'll never go back. Hot subs...yea, cold not so much as there are better options on the islandMore
