This place is a hidden gem. Not what you would expect from what looks like a pizza/sub restaurant in a strip mall. The service and quality of the food was superb. The prices were very reasonable for excellent quality fish. I love the fact that you can have your (generous portion) protein prepared exactly the way you want, with any number of sauces. All entrees come with soup or salad and pasta. We ordered a bottle of wine which was a good value. I understand you can BYOB but there is a corkage fee. We plan on returning for another meal.

As usual, service and food was very good. Had an additional guest with us on Sunday and my brother and his wife enjoyed it as well. Earlier in the week, I mentioned our first visit to my brother and how good it was. His friend was nearby and as soon as I mentioned Gaspares, he said it was one of his and his wife's favorites. This conversation took place in Philadelphia, not at the shore. My brother's friend has a home in OC and travels to Gaspares frequently.

Gaspares always offers wonderful food. The vinaigrette was a little too acidic, but everything else made up for it. They offer such a great early bird that I hate to advertise it. So many choices make it hard to choose, but every one delicious. No wonder they’ve been in business for so long.

Wish this place was in center city Philly...there would be a line out the door from when they open til they close. Place is charming & very inviting & comfortable...I didn't want to leave

We were in AC & to Egg Harbor...short ride...the most delicious lunch @ 11am HOUR HOUR starts so we were right on time.

For an appetizer..we had a glass of wine & a slice of pizza. Pizza was perfect! Following that, shrimp scampi had to bring some of it home, good size portion for lunch,

All the reviews I read were true! Gaspares is a delicious place for many years...our waitress who ran the place could not have been nicer....very helpful a lovely lady.

Hope before the first frost we can get back to GASPARES this place could be habit forming....the food is FABULOUS!

Wow! We've been to dozens of Italian restaurants, but this one is very special. Top-of-the-line food with more than ample portions, and sauces among the best we've ever had. We're goin' back next week to try some of other interesting stuff we saw on the video menu along the walls.

Always a treat to come to Gaspares for great Italian comfort food.
His marinara (gravy) sauce is to die for.
Who else would travel 1200 miles each summer to AC and Gaspares?
All the best.

Gaspares is an outstanding place to have really good food without breaking the bank. We had a Brooklyn pizza that was so thin and full of cheese, fresh tomato chunks that it made a memorable appetizer. The gnocchi in blush was outstanding. I had eggplant parmesan with fettuccine and it was absolutely delicious.

Food is exceptional. Limited seating so reservations is required especially on weekends. A wee bit noisy on a crowed Saturday but did not bother us. We foodies enjoyed our meal. Will definitely go again!

It’s a very small restaurant in a shopping strip. They do a ton of takeout. We waited 45 minutes for our table and sat next to an orange bucket of dripping water from the ceiling. The waitstaff was very nice and did the best they could. The food was delicious and their martinis are very large so that was a bonus.

Very nice, very small, very good Italian restaurant.
Menu is amazing and our dinners - halibut and Lobster ravioli's were delicious.
Other diners choices looked ample and equally delicious.
Reservation definitely rec. as there are only about 10-12 tables.

The brusetta that they serve every table is delicious and they had no qualms when we requested twice more. Entrees came with pasta and salad and was served piping hot. The four of us enjoyed our dinners very much and plan to go again.
