Pleasant Patio Dining

Had a pleasant meal out on the back patio. Server was very nice and the food was good. Took awhile to get, but we just relaxed and enjoyed our drinks. Not easy to navigate if you use a walker or wheelchair.

What a wonderful, hidden gem on Main Street in Patchogue. We started with bruschetta and clams casino - the sauce was delicious and we used the bread to mop up the sauce. The lobster ravioli was the best - so much lobster in the ravioli and in the sauce. The service was great, very family oriented but also classy. Top... More

While the food is really good, and the servers are good, I feel the place is very cramped and thus it becomes very loud. It sometimes feels like you are sitting elbow to elbow. They have a live singer who is great, but it just adds to the noisy sense of the place.

I have to say for out dated decor and a scary guy that sings the food is always very good. I have never been let down by the food here ever. I would recommend for a good meal.

Have been there many times, BUT, this time I was disappointed. The portions if the main course we're considerably smaller. The presentation left alot to be desired. The taste was average. ..in past visits the above were all much much better.

The wait staff was amazing and the food was delicious. The ambiance is dated but hey you can't eat the paint and wallpaper and the food more than makes up for the lack of ambiance. Portion size was large with lots to take home. The waiter was absolutely perfect - attentative without being overbearing.

Be prepared for lefovers that are equivalent to another full meal. Wraps, paninis, saleds all excellent but best value is lunch specials. The variety is plentiful and so are the portions. Food is homestyle italian. "Private" table for 6 near window is available for reservation. Great for small business meeting.

This place is out of control!!!! The outside is a bit unassuming but once you step inside, you may be surprised how far away from Patchogue you may feel! It reminded me of Little Italy. The house cabernet was amazing! My boyfriend had their house Pino and was extremely happy also. I had the lunchbox meal with meatballs and chicken... More

This small, unassuming place makes some excellent Italian food. Really, you say? Yes, I do! The name doesn't allude to it but this is an Italian restaurant. The locals are in the know and now you are, too. The only drawback is that they don't serve any beer on tap. Not a deal breaker, though, so go visit and enjoy.
