I broke off from driving south thru New Jersey to find lunch near to Neptune City and very glad I was to find this place in Bradley Beach. It has a really great Italian feel with great posters of all things Italian on the walls....More

I always get angry with myself for trying other Italian restaurants. This one is clearly the best. It is like eating in my mother's kitchen. Best escarole and beans by far. Bar menu is great and a very good value. Love this place!!!

Dined at UVA probably 20-30 times. Their Tappas items at $5.00 a plate are great. Nice friendly bar. Older crowd. Definitely a go too place.

Stopped here on my lunch break. They offer a wide lunch menu that ranged from 5 to 10 dollars. Service was quick and food was great. Had a pizza. Also got cavatelli and broccoli. Seasoning was perfect. Will return

Great place for happy hour! Large selection of appetizers and drinks at super prices. Stuffed clams, escarole and beans, meatball sliders and of course calamari!

We stayed in Ocean Grove and received a dinner voucher for UVA's. We were unsure how it was going to be as we had never been there before. We were beyond pleasantly surprised. Steven was our server and he went above and beyond with recommendations...More

Sorry I couldn't help with your question since I live in Bucks County, Pa. But they are open for lunch for sure on weekends and they always have an insert with daily specials in their menu, hope this helps!
