So glad to find a place that makes gluten free dairy free pizza that is so good. With certain dietary restrictions it can be so hard to eat out and maintain the way I like to eat. Their menu is very “diet restriction” friendly and their cauliflower crust is so good. You won’t miss the gluten or the cheese!Dietary restrictions: Gluten free, dairy free

I love this place! I frequent every time I visit Ocean Grove. The food is delicious, they cook with "clean" & wholesome ingredients, the prices are affordable & the wait staff are very friendly.

I’ve been here twice and both times the food was exceptional. It’s great to support a small business. Their pizza, sandwiches and salads are all great, and it’s often regularly visited with patrons. During the summer months I would recommend calling ahead for a pizza as it can be a long wait. In the off season we didn’t have to wait as long.Parking: Free start parking up and down the street or along side streets, very easy during the off season, trickier during summer months when the beach gets more packedKid-friendliness: Suitable for kidsWheelchair accessibility: At street level, might be a bit challenging to get through front door but staff are helpful

Tino's is a gem. Absolutely delicious. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Excellent food. The cappuccino was perfect. The salad was crisp and clean -very refreshing. And the pizza is so good I wish I could give ten stars! The crust is airy and thin. Toppings are evenly distributed. Tons of flavor is packed into these pies. I could eat here every single day and I can't wait to go back.

My husband and I love Tino's! My favorite is the artisanal eggplant sandwich ...on ciabatta bread with side house salad. The food is always fresh and served hot! My husband likes the artisanal chicken sandwich with broccoli rabe and roasted tomatoes and mozzarella!Ocean Grove is our go too and we came tonight on an exceptionally warm late October evening... Tino's place was mobbed but we stayed and got service...you have to be patient on a night like tonight...Let's just say they were short staffed but the young man working tonight Rob, was service with a smile, running upstairs to take care of a party of 13, busing tables, running food out, working with the young lady on the register to keep food coming out and keeping the customers outside and inside happy!We love this place! Atmosphere is great and though super busy tonight...the staff was all about team work and putting customers first! Dear owner...they should be commended for their efforts!This made our night! Highly recommended! On a busy night , bring your patience and be kind to the staff! ?

What happened? I used to splurge on the eggplant rollatini but what I got yesterday was almost inedible. Very little sauce or cheese a big dry mess. Luckily I had a jar of sauce from Cheese on Main so I could salvage it. Edible but not enjoyable.Vegetarian options: There are a few.

We got what we both felt was one of the best tasting pizzas we ever had. It was awesome. And the brushetta we got was also pretty damn delicious.We got there close to closing, and they happily took our order. And our food was prepared quickly. Highly recommend it.

We stopped for a late lunch on a beautiful summer Saturday…sat outside and were welcomed very friendly staff… the special pizza was the fresh sliced figs, Gorgonzola cheese, and prosciutto which we tried and absolutely loved! We had such a great meal, the setting, food and service was wonderful. I recommend Tino’s wholeheartedly.

We were driving through Ocean Grove and ate at Tino's last week. Gotta say that we were super impressed by the extra friendly service by all servers (even when it started pouring rain and the servers got soaked they still in a good mood!). Thanks for the water for our pup, too!Food: My husband was delighted with the Pulpo Salad (not fried, too!) and we were both blown away by how good the Pizzette (one with meatballs) was. Super quick, piping hot, fabulous crust (thin, but substantial to hold the meatballs), zesty sauce. First time a "Meatball Pizza" has tasted like meatballs in our experience (they slice the meatball in firm neat rounds, kind of like pepperoni). Anyway, next time I will gladly go out of our way to come back to Tino's.

Note: My review is not about the food or atmosphere - only the service.An unfortunate low point on an otherwise fun visit to Ocean Grove. My father, mother, and I wanted to eat there for dinner a few nights ago to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday and got there a few minutes 8PM. We had been told earlier that their dine-in was closed by that point and only take-out was available (I presume because closing is at 9PM). However, we were not sure whether this rule was only in place because they didn't have the staff to wait on new customers after 8PM (there were still plenty of customers who presumably had arrived before 8PM who were still eating there - inside and out), or if, in fact, the tables were closed altogether regardless of wait staff availability. So, my father asked an employee if they were fine with us ordering takeout and sitting at one of their outdoor tables on the sidewalk, but we would otherwise take care of ourselves (no wait staff needed whatsoever). The employee said she didn't know, but a second waitress (I didn't get her name, but she was Caucasian, about 20-30 years old, and had brown hair) interrupted and said "No" and said that we should sit at a nearby restaurant instead. My dad started to explain that we wouldn't need anyone to wait on us - all we needed was a place to sit down, we'd be out within half an hour, would clean up after ourselves, and we'd prefer to be at Tino's since we were hoping to order from there - but before he could fully explain all of this, the second waitress interrupted him and snapped "I don't care what you think" with a sardonic smile. We were baffled as this was fully unpromoted and the first waitress and my father had otherwise started to have a polite conversation until the second waitress joined in. We promptly left.To give the restaurant their due credit: There's nothing wrong with saying that we can't sit at the tables - it's their restaurant and their property - and there's nothing wrong with saying "no" again to my dad's explanation, as there may of course be other reasons to not want customers to sit at their tables past 8PM. However, there's ALSO nothing wrong with him asking a simple clarifying question in case the restaurant can accommodate - it's a question, NOT a demand. And there IS something wrong with saying "I don't care what you think" in that scenario. I'm guessing the second waitress was having a bad day or has had bad experiences with customers in the past, but she should know better than to project that onto others.

Tino's Artisan Pizza is pizza and more. He offers gluten free options including cauliflower crusts. The pizzas are made in a clay oven and are creative and consistently delicious. My favorite is the Antonia pizza. It's topped with artichoke, salami, and olives. These pizzas are never greasy or overly cheesy. They are perfect gourmet works of art. P.S. the sandwiches and salads are delicious too. The team at Tino's are amongst the nicest wait staff you will meet. Their attitude and friendly service shows that this business cares about it's customers and employees. You must try it.

Just really good pizza, a little bit of a wait but to be expected on a Sunday night in a small beach town. Honestly great flavors and quick service once sat. Enjoyed the gnocchi bites as well as all the pizzas we had.
