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.

This is a family owned and operated good example of what an Italian restaurant should be. The service is impeccable, forgiving and pleasant. We began with outstanding fresh rolls and hearty cocktails and then moved on to shellfish and pasta for two guests and the swordfish special with fresh clams and a hearty tomato wine sauce for me. The fish... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants for both lunch and dinner. The food is very good, the veal is incredibly tender and flavorful, and the service is always excellent. The arugula salad is delightful and the side dishes are usually very good as well--one night the chef made a delicious cabbage side dish, and we could not believe we... More

Elegant, distinctive and wonderful! Great for business dinners. We didn't make a reservation but ate early. We were graciously received by owner and immediately seated. The dark cherry wainscoting and the etched glass room dividers set the rooms apart and gave a touch of elegance to the dining area. All tables were set with silver, linen and a fresh rose.... More

We have never been disappointed with the meals and service at Sempre Vivolo, I recall going there for over 10 plus years. The food is delicious in a comfortable setting and excellent service

Sempre Vivolo is a bit of a throw back - jackets required for male dinners, valet parking and a "reservations required" policy. However, the food is excellent as is the ambiance and service! We started at the very comfortable bar for cocktails -where we found a great variety in drinks with fine wines offered by the glass, or more extensively... More

We were a party of four on a recent Saturday night. I was a little concerned that this would be a stuffy restaurant catering mainly to regular customers. However, our experience was great from cocktails at the bar, through dinner. The bartender was friendly and made great drinks. He personally showed us to the dining room where we were given... More

A colleague brought me here and while I had heard much about it, I never had eaten there. The place is elegant with a nice subdued atmosphere, a great place for a quiet dinner whether for business or pleasure. The fish special, a sea bass, was excellent as was my friend's veal dish. The spinach salad was very good and... More

Very small Italian dive with awkward parking lot and location in Hauppauge, Long Island. Food is quite amazing and a great selection of Italian dishes. The interior of this hole in the wall is stale and dated, but worth a visit. Watch out for the hawkish owner who will give you the up and down if you don't look wear... More

We ate there on a business trip. Arrived fairly late, but the staff was very friendly and accomodating. They have an excellent wine list, some expensive, but I think very reasonably-priced compared to the markup from retail most restaurants have. The food was very good. A couple of the dishes were a little salty, but with anchovies in one and... More
