Description:

Dining along the shore can be taken literally at La Casa, as outdoor table service only yards from the Sound means parents can watch their kids playing in the sand as they chow down on a pizza or panini. Indoors, the menu is more in the traditional Italian vein--with a salad bar to help open the entrées of pasta, chicken, veal, beef and seafood. Unfortunately, if there's snow on the ground you won't likely be able to come through for a meal as this establishment is strictly a spring, summer and early fall-only dining option.

The Italian Feast at La Casa Cafe, 445

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.
