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 Sempre Vivolo on Valentine's Day. We have been to this establishment before and the service is always excellent. The food is very good. I am always impressed by the professionalism. Highly recommend.

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.

Upon walking in and being seated, you just know you are in a special place. Very friendly and professional staff. Forget what the specials are- tell them what you are looking for- chances are very good the kitchen can make it happen. Outstanding wine list. Absolutely the Best Veal I have had in dozens of Long Island restaurants. Excellent!

We were invited guests by friends of ours from the region. Being Francophones, the Italian language isn't that foreign to us. So, when our small group encountered the warm and friendly reception by the classically, tuxedo dressed, Maitre D' at the door in that Latin language, we knew we were about to enjoy a dining experience. The dining room was... More
