Authentic Italian restaurant Pulia adds to variety along Ventnor’s restaurant row. Now open for outdoor dining and take-out.

Pulia. 5210 Atlantic Ave, Ventnor, NJ.

Pulia was founded in 2012 with the mission of bringing the Apulian culinary traditions to the world.

Authentic European flavor. Pulia: a culinary trip to Southern Italy.

Co-owner Gennaro Comella is originally from Naples, Italy. In his early 20s, Comella traveled to Atlantic City in order to work at his uncle’s restaurant, Girasole.

Tasting the flavors of a region means discovering its soul, its essence, its culture.

A careful selection of natural ingredients and in partnership with some of the finest Apulian producers, Pulia aims to share the culinary stories, traditions and history of the region of Puglia, the heel of Italy.

Italian culture and the taste of Apulian cuisine, in the colorful location decorated with traditional ceramics.

Pulia in Ventnor is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Excellent fresh homemade spaghetti, meatballs and thin crust pizza. Recommend to anyone looking for delicious Italian food at reasonable prices.

“We have had breakfast and dinner at Pulia. This is a simple menu and we were told the idea is to eat like you are actually in Italy. Breakfast is NOT bacon and eggs or waffles.

Breakfast is healthier and lighter than that, offering avocado salad on toast, a light bagel sandwich, fresh fruit, etc.

Do not expect big plates and tons of food. Expect a healthy portion done right. Each food item offers a perfect bite.

The tomato salad (a special) was dressed just enough to accentuate the salad. The pizza ingredients were a harmony of accents. Everything is truly delicious. We are so glad this gem landed in Ventnor!

Great margharita pizza , Caesar salad, and prosciutto and melon. Highly recommended.
