Nice ambiance, highly professional staff, and consistently prepared high quality Italian food. The owner Vincent, and his son Carmine are icons in the New York Italian dining scene.

Place is very old and has dirty carpets and ceilings. Wonder about the kitchen. The mixed green salad was good. Seafood salad horrible looks nice but horrible no taste at all maybe it's from a can from China. Fish was soft and mushy as if it was frozen for six months and the Linguini came swimming in oil just horrible.

We visited on a Thursday night after work (business dinner). We were a group of 12 and sat at a large table. The service was excellent. The waiter was not frazzled by a large table The food was very very good. There are so many Italian restaurants on Long Island that serve great food, but, I think Sempre Vivolo is... More

I was treated to an "old school" Italian ambiance experience while recently visiting Long Island on business. Where the waiters treat you like a king and mama is in the back whipping up her favorites. The vino and Italian flowed freely. I can't wait to get back there on my next trip and see Mr. V and his crew.
