Longo’s has been a long-time favorite of actors, artists, and sports stars, and it isn’t hard to see why. Like a restaurant straight out of a South Philly noir, Longo’s features sleek, black-and-white décor and traditional Italian dishes to impress. This Atlantic City restaurant inside Bally’s offers a special antipasto menu where guests enjoy sliced-to-order meats and hand-pulled mozzarella.
LONGO’S brand originated in the Historic Federal Hill area in Providence, RI, where owner Jerry Longo created a unique menu of authentic Italian cuisine. Jerry, and his talented culinary team have recently grown the LONGO’s brand footprint by opening at Twin River Casino and by retuning to Jerry’s home area of the Greater Philadelphia region, opening at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. The location at Bally’s Atlantic City will be Longo’s 4th location in the portfolio.
Owner Longo was born and raised in South Philly where he learned to respect and appreciate his Italian American culture. Jerry often found himself in the kitchen with his mother preparing “Italian Soul Food,” which now lives on through the menu items offered at Jerry Longo’s Meatballs & Martinis. Using only the finest imported and the freshest local ingredients, LONGO’S menus are designed to inspire exploration and sharing. Entrees at their new Atlantic City location will include pasta dishes such as “spaghetti & our famous meatball”, a Richard Jenkins favorite. Additional items include spaghetti and crab gravy, bucatini all’Amatriciana and their classic Roman-style pizza al taglio.
The antipasto is slated to be a special experience at Bally’s Atlantic City. A dedicated and staffed bar area features a curated antipasto menu including meats sliced to order on the showpiece Berkel slicer and hand-pulled mozzarella. Jerry pays attention to every detail, serving his favorites on handcrafted olivewood. His signature dish is a Meatball Salad, known as the “Longo Classic” which features their famous homemade meatball and a scoop of ricotta, alongside romaine, cucumbers, black olives, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and old school vinaigrette. No experience is complete without the famous, deconstructed affogato dessert or a crispy, made-to-order cannoli.
Longo restaurants are known to be frequently visited by well-known celebrities, including the legendary Billy Joel, several actors from the Sopranos, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and former tight end Rob Gronkowski, American actor Richard Jenkins and many more.
The restaurant is known for its authentic and approachable atmosphere. The experience is further elevated by the 2 blackjack tables within the restaurant plus multiple televisions, live music and even DJ entertainment.
