Via Mare, which means transported from the sea, is owned by partners Sebastian Tranchina and Michael Fauci and serves traditional Italian Cuisine as well as pizza baked in a new wood burning brick oven that heats at 1,000 degrees. That means a 12-inch pizza can be ready in about 90-seconds, according to Fauci.
Tranchina is also the owner of Luigi’s Pizza in West Grove Square and Fauci, a native New Yorker, formerly worked at Patrizia’s in Red Bank. Fauci is the restaurant Manager and points out that the new Via Mare is a white tablecloth fine dining restaurant that is completely separate from the bowling lanes. It does have a concession in the adjacent Bradley Beach Bowling which is served by a separate menu as well as a separate bar. The new dining room seats 80 and there are 20 seats at the bar.
Via Mare is open daily from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Featured image above from their Facebook page.
