Reliable, long-standing Long Island Italian restaurant

First ate here over 25 years ago. Had dinner there last night. Always very good food, substantial variety, good service. Free valet service lets you drop the car off right at the front door and brings the car back to you there when ready to leave.

This place is superb. The owners are so accommodating and the entire staff was the same. The food is delicious. Everything that came out was on point. What a feast. By far the best Italian food on Long Island! The meatball sliders are fabulous. The stuffed artichoke was delicious and so we're all our dinners. The cedar plank salmon was... More

I came here on a second date with my boyfriend and the first thing i loved about it was the atmosphere. They had a big italian guy singing frank sinatra and the inside is decorated very nicely. The food was great, the chicken marsala and penne a la vodka are some of the best i've ever tried and would highly... More

My family and I are lovers of Italian food, and since discovering Cafe Formaggio about 4 years ago, we have became frequent visitors especially for any sort of event, big or small. Food is absolutely outstanding, service is top notch, and the wait staff (especially Nicole) keeps you coming back for more. The menu has a plethora of options for... More

This cafe is ideal for lunch or diner. We take my daughter and son in law about once every 5,6 weeks. They have a full gluten free menu and at a regular menu. My daughter loves their shrimp dishes and my son in law has his standard chicken with pasta. We love their fish dishes with red sauce. Their deserts... More

Sunday night we went to celebrate a birthday. The tables in the restaurant were ridiculously on top of one another. It was so bad that as customers and staff were passing the table they were constantly knocking into my niece's chair the entire night. The staff were very abrupt. The food was just ok. The baked clams were good but... More

I am allergic to gluten, so I have bad it my own personal mission to find the best gluten free menu around. Cafe Formaggio is definitely in my top five. Their gluten free menu is just as long as their regular menu, and they even flag your food gluten free, which makes me feel as if they take this annoying... More

My girlfriends and I have made this our official Mom's Night Out restaurant for a few reasons. Firstly, the menu is extensive and offers an equally extensive gluten free menu for those moms that have restrictions. Secondly, every dish is tasty, plentiful and nicely presented. Finally, we have always received great service & are never rushed. All in all a... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. The waiter Giovanni was excellent. The food is very good and the house wine was worth the money. We will go back again soon.
