The food is AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS!!! We didn't wait to valet and just parked at the bank next door. Decor/music was nice. Our seat was a little odd, a booth for 2 that was part of a bench (3 tables in all) so we felt somewhat

Pros: food, employees

.

FIRST OFF , THE VALET PARKING GUY WAS A MORON. THE SEATING WAS TERRIBLE. THEY SAT US RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FLOOR, WHERE EVERYBODY WAS PASSING. I HAD TO KEEP MOVING MY ARM TO EAT. THEY GAVE US BREAD WITH A DIP WHICH I HAD NO CLUE WHAT I WAS EATING, UNTIL I ASKED. THE WAITER WANTED TO SELL US A BOTTLE OF WATER. YES WATER. HOW CHEEESY IS THAT. ALSO THE WAITER WAS EXTREMELY ANNOYING. HE WOULD CONSTANTLEY COME OVER WHILE I WAS TRYING TO EAT. THE SODA I ORDERED TASTED HORRIBLE, SO WHEN I ORDERED A NEW ONE HE KEPT ASKING WHAT WAS WRONG WITH IT. IM THE CUSTOMER!!! JUST GET ME ANOTHER SODA MORON. BY THE WAY THE SECOND ONE TASTED LIKE GARBAGE ALSO. I THINK THE ICE WAS BAD. THEY HAD CARDBOARD FOR TABLECLOTHES. THE PLACE WAS SO NOISY AND ANNOYING. IT WAS NOT A PEACEFUL ATMOSPHERE AT ALL. IT WAS MORE LIKE A TGI FRIDAYS THAN AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT. I HAVE TO SAY THE FOOD WAS GOOD THOUGH. AT THE END OF DINNER, THE GOOD FOR NOTHING ATTENDANT COULDN?T FIND MY KEYS, AND HAD THE NERVE TO ASK IF I WANTED TO GET THE CAR MYSELF. LEAVE IT TO LONG ISLAND TO HAVE A TERRIBLE ITALIAN RESTAURANT. DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND GO TO BROOKLYN OR MANHATTAN FOR THE REAL THING. THEY DESPERATLEY NEED HELP IN THAT HOLE!!!

I have been there twice, and have enjoyed the food both times. I remember eating their salmon once and the tilapia the next time. You can get the price fixe for dinner and it comes with a salad and desert. Beverage is extra. There is valet parking because parking on the street doesn't exist. The ambiance is lovely and the waiters were very good. I would definitely eat there again.

Ok food and ok service. There is nothing here that I would recommend, the prices are higher than any pizzeria in the area. They do offer better sitting than a neighborhood pizzeria, but we were not pleased with the quantity of food for the price nor were we happy with the service. The servers we had were immature and is showed through and I am not meaning in age.

My parents live nearby. We had a terrible meal here a few months back but a friend had told them something about a "New Chef" and what a great meal they had.
So we tried it again.
WOW, what a difference ! It's like a new restaurant and the food actually tastes FRESH !
Waiter was a little spacie, but other than that we had a great time.

I love this place, the food was amazing and affordable. The staff and service can't be beat, the manager even took the time to introduce himself and make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. This is our new favorite restaurant.

I have frequented this establishment on many occassions. In fact it as one of my favorites. This past Saturday I revisited to find out that the chef/owner had sold and was no longer there. It was the same menu, but what a difference. The food was mediocre at best. The service was terrible, and the manager was running around, yelling at people> I will never go back, and recommend everyone to stay away. My only question is where is the prior chef?

I was watching a morning show this morning, and saw a cooking demonstration from the owner of this restaurant that I use to watch on food network. He was so entetaining, that I changed my prior plans and dined at Uncle Bacala's instead. I was so pleasantly surprised to see him in the kitchen. The food was so authentic and delicious that I highly recommend it.

After a long buisness meeting, I found myself lost in Garden City. feeling light-headed from not eating I pulled into this restaurant's parking lot. Being with two other jaded Manhattan lawyers, our expectations were not high, Boy was I surprised. The food was as good as any Manhattan Italian restaurant, but at a fraction of the cost. The staff was young and friendly.....and although I have been on a diet, save room for the dessert waffles, they are to die for. If you too find yourself lost in Long Island, seek this wonderful restaurant out, you will not be sorry!

I read a review of this place, mentioning that David Ruggerio was there cooking. I never thought I would find him there, but to my surprise, in the middle of the open kitchen he was there! The food was great, especially the pasta's. The calamari was the best, and save room for the dessert they call "coffee & dognuts". The service was friendly, and the prices were very affordable. I really was impressed with the kids menu. It is on my favorites list.

My family took me out for my birthday recently. We went early on a Friday to avoid the busy atsmosphere. The service was great. The hostess and our waiter consistently checked to see if everything was good. The french onion soup was heavenly. My parents ordered the clam and spaghetti special and after having a taste it was fantastic. I ordered the lamb and it was cooked to perfection while maintaining it's tenderness. The only negative was the somewhat greasiness of the calameri appetizer and seafood pasta my parents ordered. Nevertheless, I would definetely recommend having a cozy meal with family or friends.
