Everyone else was booked so we took our chances

We could not get reservations at other restaurants close to our proximity. The service was outstanding, food delicious and we were not rushed at all. We sat for three hours ate delicious food and had great conversation.

I've been going to this restaurant for 18 years and it has always been the best Italian food you can get in the area. The service is impeccable, Mr. V and his son Carmine run a tight ship. Pete and Sam have been working there forever and always have a nice story to tell about their families or time to... More

Sempre Vivolo always shines above other restaurants because . . . they make you feel special and welcomed. Their food and presentation is always spot on. The waiters are knowledgeable, informative and friendly. They are not overbearing and they pay attention to detail and know what's needed before you ask. Obviously they are managed correctly and successfully have been in... More

Our first time there. We've heard so many great things about this restaurant we thought we would try it out. We were not disappointed. I started out with a Caesar Salad. Outstanding dressing with plenty of anchovies. We went to celebrate New Years Eve with our neighbors who frequent this restaurant. Next dish was a sharing of rigatoni bolognaise. The... More

I have been to Sempre Vivolo several times and have been impressed with the quality of food and quality of service. Our most recent visit reinforced what we already knew-if you want great Italian meal this is the place to go in the Hauppauge area. The veal chops are amazing. The seafood is always fresh and tasty. This should be... More

This is a standard place where we go out to dine for business meetings and normally I dont eat Italian but if you have to then this restaurant is also a place to visit and you will not regret. Make sure that you know what you are ordering as the Italian pronouniciation can be misleading for those who are not... More

Excellent food. Accommodating chef. Waitstaff are from an alternate universe or a better era. I can't express how appreciative I am of top flight service. It is European in caliber. The waiter is there for YOU; not as a glorified table turnover traffic cop; not as an unctuous naïf who bores you with the life story of the salmon you're... More

Sempre Vivolo is always superb. Vincenzo Vivolo and his son Carmine run a truly outstanding establishment. The service is impeccable. too. Waiters like Steve and Peter have been there forever, and they know their craft. Don't miss the asparagus au gratin appetizer if it's available on your visit. The fish is fresh and wonderful. The meat sauce is to die... More

This was recommended by some business partners locally. It was excellent. From the appetizers, to the entrees, to the desserts everything I had was tremendous. The pollo mona lisa is oozing with cheese.
