“for a chain, very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Much better than the other Italian chains. The food here is freshly prepared. And they do have a wood burning oven, so the pizzas are ok. Some of the pasta dishes are very good. Good value for the money. An inexpensive get together (including drinks) for a large group of friends (they have a separate room).

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Good is not bad, service good and friendly at this stark and barebones attempt at an "Italian" trattoria. Fills you up in a decent way, but there must be better places nearby?

“Can I give zero stars????”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

What a waste ... I was a guest at an event recently that was held in their private room , the event started @ 11:30 am remember this because Bertucci's opens at 11am. The party started with bread on the tables as well as soda and water, everyone's glassware was filthy with spots all over them. Several guests got up and asked for new glasses. Salad and appetizers made its way out of the kitchen, it was ok food nothing spectacular kinda made me think of a slightly glorified Olive Garden. The waitstaff started to remove the reminisce of appetizers by dumping our dirty plates filled with leftover food and napkins on to one large plate and giving us back our dirty plates, the waitress told us sorry we don't have any clean plates. How is that possible??? The place just opened an hour prior to this. After many complaints by guests and the host of event we finally got clean plates , were they hoarding them in the back?! The icing on the cake was when coffee arrived and the rim of my mug was black with caked on dirt, I was able to scratch a portion off with my fingernail DISGUSTING !! I would never ever eat here again and OSHA should be informed of the cleanliness of this place. I'm surprised that this place is ranked #13 out of 24 restaurants in Melville this place was the worst.
