Don't bother with Little Italy, gem in Smithtown

Our go to place for great Italian. Portions are gynormous, more importantly, food is wonderful. Been all over looking for good Italian food and always come back here. Had a stuffed veal chop, could have fed 3 people, was pricey, but so worth it. Tender, savory, cheesy stuffing. A little noisy... read more

We have dined at La Famiglia a number of times, but I realized that for whatever reason, I have never written a review. Our most recent visit was in a Saturday evening with a few couples. We had called a day before for reservations,which proved to be a good move as the restaurant was very crowded. Like previous reviewers have... More

My cousin booked La Famiglia for a family gathering - I had never been there before. Shortly after we arrived, the tables were loaded with antipasto, excellent fried calamari, delicious eggplant rolatini, diced tomato bruschetta, salads, and bread. To my surprise, that was just the first course! Next came lemon chicken, chicken marsala, and dishes too numerous to mention. The... More

From the first time I spoke to the owners to plan our mom's 85th semi surprise the 2 John's could not have been more accommodating. They both were very attentive to all of our concerns & needs. Coming from an Italian family I was very happy with the family style service, quality & quantity of the meals.The guests of almost... More

This is a family style restaurant, but you can order individual dishes as well. The food is very good, along with service( hostess and bartender). The waiters can be a bit pushy with taking food orders, but they are still nice.

I've been to La Famiglia twice. On both occasions the food was excellent. Service is as good as it gets. The only negative is that the place has the worst acoustics imaginable. You literally have to shout to be heard, even when it's not crowded. A small investment in sound deadening, would make this place perfect.

I was actually there before November 2013. Went for Sunday dinner with my husband, daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. It was a very comfortable table as they are set up for families and serve family style. Food was good. But since it is so popular, a little hectic.

We had a group of about 40 people that went out for a luncheon. This place was chosen as someone had already eaten there and said the food was quite good. The food was very good and the service considering the size of the group was okay. Everything was served family style including the appetizers and salad. for some of... More

My Italian heritage challenges me to try Italian restaurants with a good reputation. I couldn't be happier La Famiglia was recommended. I was with a group of 16 and the attention of the server could not have been better. The menu offers a good variety. The portions are HUGE and the flavor real authentic. Everyone left completely satisfied. I will... More
