Good restaurant, consistently good food. This is a very busy restaurant, I would recommend reservations definitely. The fish is always delicious, specials often have Bronzino style. The red sauce is very tasty. And they also make magnificent French Martinis!

This gem of an Italian restaurant is located in a tired strip mall - but persevere - leave the car with the valet - and enjoy one of the better Italian meals on Long Island. Veal Chop Valdestano is magnificent - the Osso Bucco just melts in your mouth - but look around the menu -they are an amazing restaurant... More

Cafe La Strada is a must if you love Italian Food. They do not miss a beat. If it is not one of the specials, of which there may be over 20, they will make your request to order. Just name it, it is yours. Old style cooking with very impeccable service. Hidden behind an very low keys store from... More

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating our mothers birthday. The service was fantastic, the wine was great and the food and menu phenomenal. Can't say enough nice things. The only negative was the valet parking attendant was very rude when I wanted to park my own car. But our excellent waiter assured me he would have a... More

This was a location recommended by the hotel for dinner. It is in a small strip mall like area just off the expressway. It is easy to get to and has good valet parking. The restaurant is Italian throughout and is well decorated. I was there on a Wednesday night about 7:30 so it was not hard to get seated.... More

We dined here with friends on Saturday. The place was cozy and nicely decorated. We had a reservation so there was no wait for a table. Our waiter seemed nice however, when we asked him for the wine list, we were told that it didn't pay to give it to us since they didn't have most of the wines listed.... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant. One of our favorites. Cuisine is Italian of course. You will be surprised to find this unassuming place in a little strip mall just off the LIE offers such wonderful food and service. I have been here many times... with family, friends, clients and co-workers, lunch and dinner times. The food is uniformly and... More

We were seated right away, however, when we asked for the wine menu, the waiter said it didn't pay to give it to us since they didn't have most of the wines listed. That was our first clue! They also ran out of regular menus - apparently there was a big group in the back room and La Strada was... More
