After leaving Italiano's Maplewood II in Mays Landing, it's not uncommon to hear guests exclaim they've just eaten some of the best Italian food in the area. The self proclaimed "World's Best Spaghetti" likely won't disappoint: the homemade spaghetti sauce is perfectly made and tops delicious soft, tender housemade pasta. Everything here is made from scratch with fresh ingredients.

Start with some of the fresh baked bread, house salad, and the calamari appetizer. The garlic bread and onion loaf are both worth trying. Craving some fresh seafood? Order the Joe's special with tons of seafood, pasta, and housemade sauce or stick with a classic, like Rigatoni and Sausage. The portions here are quite large, and there's likely enough for leftovers. You can pair your meal with a glass of wine or save room for a sweet dessert. Friendly service and a warm ambiance make this a popular spot for a special meal.
