As a local I'd never made the trip to eat here. My husband surprised me for valentines day. It was VERY good! I'm sorry I missed out all these years. Kelly D was our server. She was wonderful! Can't wait to go back.

This is a fine dining experience! Food is excellent! Service is good! Facacia bread a must! Piano music is calming. This is a local and visitors desired cuisine tailored towards romantic for couples and calm talking amongst a small group of friends. If you desire Italian cuisine this is your restaurant.

The atmosphere is nice. They had live music and happy hour in the front of the restaurant. Our group sat in the back and 1 person bought the flounder which is $37 and wanted to switch out the linguini for vegetables and there was $5 up charge on a already expensive meal. The 2 flounder filets were very thin and... More

Food and service were both mediocre. I got the lobster special but it had a fishy smell and taste, hopefully the little I ate will not make me sick. I could tell this was not fresh. It took forever to get a menu and we were seated in the middle but it was a major passageway to and from the... More

My husband and I had a very good dining experience at this oceanfront restaurant. This is the original location as they have opened another on Great Neck Road. Cocktails were generous and well mixed. We both had veal....one alla marsala and one alla Francese. Both perfectly cooked. A salad comes with the entree. House dressing is too oily for my... More

Hadn't been here for many years, but decided to return. Service was good, although we were seated by the windows and it was quite chilly ... in hindsight, we should have asked to be reseated immediately. Ordered a coffee to warm up a bit, but the coffee was cold. Food was good, but had to wait quite a while because... More

An extensive menu with a decent wine selection. The food is a tad pricey but very good and the service is attentive and good. The eggplant parm is good but not great. They have some alternatives to pasta like spiral cut zucchini. The valet parking is free (except for tip of course) and a blessing in The Oceanfront Area.
