Owner Joe Celano just instituted outdoor table service at his beachfront restaurant. Now, parents can watch their kids playing in the sand as they chow down on a pizza or a panino.

Indoors, the menu is more in the traditional Italian vein. A salad bar - uninteresting but plentiful - adds value, at least according to some. The food, while not cutting edge, is generous and generally good. Chicken marsala, at a recent dinner, was a straighforward classic. Better was a pasta, penne rustica, made with sausage, broccoli rabe and no shortage of garlic.

Afterwards, walk along the shorefront. It's one of summer's pleasures.
