“Local favorite.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Very nice restaurant and local favorite. The staff knew many of the patrons. Our waiter was excellent and the food was what we expected. The restaurant is easy to find and is huge inside. Very good menu choices (read the reviews before going) with something for everyone's taste. They had an adequate wine menu as well. Price is reasonable for the area. Would certainly recommend if you are in the area and craving Italian food or pizza.

“I want to give this 5 stars, but for nostalgic reasons!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

If you're seeing a game or show at The Coliseum nearby or staying at the Marriot, this is a great family restaurant for a quick bite with a Long Island feel. It's been there forever and have a very welcoming, unpretentious feel. Overall, the food is good - but the mozz sticks and broccoli bites are the best I've ever had. The portion sizes are pretty generous, and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. This is such a historic place for my family that I want to give it a perfect rating, but I guess if you've never had an attachment to the place, you might be like "why does everyone love this so much?" (but everyone I know does love it!).

Pizza is the best. Good quality Italian food. Yes the building is old but the food is excellent. Never had a bad meal.

“Neighborhood Gem”

Love this spot. From the friend calamari to the Fra Diavlo shrimp. This is the Little Italy of East Meadow.
