We have nothing good to say about our experience at this restaurant. Food was not that good, the service was lacking and the restaurant looked sloppy. The male bartender was wearing jeans and a tshirt?! Very sloppy... We will never be back.

We had a coupon (from Groupon) to the Wobbly Olive. When we got there we found that the restaurant had closed and reopened under the name "Barrington's," no problem for us as we'd never eaten there before anyway. Now I find out that they were only changed from Pomodorino to The Wobbly Olive about a year ago, what gives? Well,... More

Went the other night with the spouse and got a pit in our stomach as we saw the sign changed from Wobbly Olive to Barrington's. Sure enough the chef that made this place special is gone as well. The menu was bar food menu now so we left and hit "the Grill Room" next door, which was pretty good. If... More

My wife and I quietly dined at The Wobbly Olive for the 3rd time, finding the food superb each time. My wife ordered skirt steak that arrived cooked to perfection; I tried a special of gnocchi with crab and shrimp which I enjoyed enormously. On a prior visit my wife had braised short ribs that fell deliciously off the bone... More

The chef has made some new twists on some simple foods. we all tried each others food and all enjoyed the different meals. Very reasonably priced and comfy. The bar was very nice, but then you can go into the back where there is more a restaurant atmosphere. Very nice.

I was working late and my wife was visiting her mother. Wanted to bring home dinner and really hate fast food places. I was told by a colleague they had great food. When first walking in I wasn't impressed, however the service was cordial and after 20 minutes and one happy hour glass of wine I was given my dinners... More

This restaurant just opened in like May or June of 2011. It looks like your average hole in the wall from the outside, but the food is incredible. The portions are generous, the short ribs melt in your mouth and the desserts are outstanding. It looks like they are geared toward the lunch crowd, being in a commercial area, but... More

Working in the Hauppauge area I've been to most restaurants in the area more times than I'd like to even think about! Pomodorino has always impressed me with great food, good service at more than affordable prices. Just recently visited their new location on Adams Avenue (they moved from Motor Pkwy) and the atmosphere has improved dramatically. It's huge inside... More

I have been there a couple of times with my frinds from work at lunch and we liked the food and the service! I would definitely recommend it.
