Reservations are strongly recommended for this Italian-American restaurant, located one block from Atlantic City’s Tropicana. Entrees are a little pricey (in the $20 range per plate), but certainly don’t disappoint. Traditional Italian dishes, such as Lasagna di Casa and Spaghettini ala Puttanesca, are served. Other menu options include fish, steak, salads and a wide array of delectable appetizers and wines. With just 14 tables and a slightly elegant atmosphere, Cafe 2825 is best for families with older children, or a date night for mom and dad. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 4:30 p.m.
