Great Neighborhood Italian

We have been eating here for many years and I'm sorry that I didn't get around to writing this sooner. I guess I take the place for granted. Small but comfortable dining room on back of great neighborhood pizzeria. Let me be brief.. Friendly attentive staff. Very good food. Enormous portions, as in... read more

High recommend the primavera pasta and primavera pizza. Everything is delish! Easy to find vegan options too :) We go all the time as a family.

Small Seating area for food, but food is not your ordinary pizzeria menu. Food is excellent. I rank this food in the top 10 for Long Island Italian restaurants. Make a reservation or you will have a long wait. Give this place a shot, you won't be disappointed.

Pizza is good to very good. I buy their tomato sauce and use it all the time. Some informal "pizza place" seating up front and in the rear is a full blown restaurant.Often crowded. I order the basic staples.The eggplant parm is very good, and not greasy. Most of the pastas are good.Although the shrimp are good, I would stay... More

Saw two roaches while in the front service area. When I brought it to their attention the staff was rude to me and obviously didn't care. Having roaches in any restaurant is disgusting. We eat out all the time and it is very rare to see roaches in any halfway decent restaurant. I placed a call to the health department... More

Please read this before going to this restaurant. Just left Poistano’s a few hours ago and couldn’t wait to write this review. We sat in the back and the waiter asked us what we wanted to order and as I started to talk he walked away and had a conversation with the table behind ours. I knew right there that... More

Right next to HMART, a Korean supermarket in a typical strip mall in Long Island lies an unassuming pizza joint with a great restaurant inside in the back of the pizza place in front. For many years I gotten pizza from this place and enjoyed their pies alot. They are fresh, well made pies with a chewy crust and they... More

Delicious food, large portions & excellent service. What more can you ask! The fish plates looked and tasted great. My chicken was so tender, it almost melted in your mouth. Our appetizers both hot and cold and desserts were great too. Staff very attentive and prices were worth the meal. Easy to get to means we will not hesitate to... More
