So tender pork chop with crunchy edges, fine tasting balsamic glaze that brings out the best in the arugula, cubed mozzarella, tomatoes and red onions. Delightful!

It was edible except the 6th shrimp which was not fresh. I ordered it because of the greens, peanuts and the dressing’s description. It was served with a few shreds of orange carrots and insufficient salad dressing. The shrimps at $1 each are pricey. Had...those been bigger shrimps, fresh, with some other colorful salad ingredients like tomatoes, avocado, red bell pepper, cucumber or mandarin orange, it would have looked appetizing and worth the price. It was the first time I was disappointed after having three lunches in Iavarone when I was always highly satisfied with my meal. It was our first dinner there and the lunch selections were not in the dinner menu. Service remains polite, attentive and prompt!More

Ok we love Ivorone’s but when it comes to our Turkey for Thanksgiving keep the garlic in the pasta dishes! We spend a lot of money at Ivonne’s. Their fruits and vegetables are fantastic. Their meats, cheeses, prepared dishes all wonderful Italian dishes. But when...it comes to our Turkey please keep the garlic out of it. Awful! Or at least say Garlic Loaded Turkey! We had to buy a prepared dinner for thanksgiving what better place than Ivonne’s? But the traditional Turkey for Thanksgiving is..maybe a few sprigs of thyme, salt , pepper butter basted. But never did we expect it to be loaded with garlic and oregano. We love the Taste of Turkey, not garlic. Hoping you will offer it the traditional way without garlic.More

A once hidden high end gem in the back of a pizza counter is gone. Classy decor has become a noisy cafeteria. The Maitre d in a suit is gone. Gourmet food has become very average and commercial. Excellent service has become “adequate “ service...It’s the way of the new world, don’t put in extra effort to excel, just do enough to get by. I used to travel 15 miles to eat here. I won’t be backMore

My sister took us to Iavarone Cafe for a casual lunch recently. I had a house salad and my husband had a slice of pepperoni and mushroom pizza. The pizza was so good that my husband wanted me to try some. I agreed with him...that it was the best pizza we ever had. The crust was thin and crisp. It was made with just the right amount of pepperoni and fresh mushrooms so that it wasn’t too oily. The green salad was ok. I thought it was pricey for what I got. The service was excellent.More

Went there for dinner with mom. Modest dinner. I had the Pasta E Fagioli and we shared a sausage pizzette. The soup was just OK. It had plenty of pasta and beans but other than that was pretty much tasteless. It was hot and the...beans and pasta were well prepared but the soup itself was a little bland. The pizzette was cooked correctly but I did not care for the taste. My mom liked it. The one thing I hate is when I get the bill and see that soda refills are not free. To add insult to injury, the cost of each soda was $2.75. That is a lot for a single glass. For that much, refills should be included. The service was very good. No issues with that.More

Bologna SR was average. Panini was competent, but not “WOW” I would try other foods before passing judgement, but it seems to be a good pizza/Italian restaurant.

Iavarone Cafe (Italian Kitchen) on 1534 Union Turnpike New Hyde Park, Nassau County Long Island, NY 11040 What a 'precious' 'hide-out' of a gem this turned out to be. The Iavarone Family have a cozy "Right-Size" 'Diner-Like' Eatery inside The Lake Sucess Shopping Center "just...up" from Lakeville Road, right next door to their own Iavarone Food "Super-Market" Center which is a whole other-delight in its own right! WoW. If you are ever hungry for a great Italian meal at very reasonable prices and happen to be in this area, we feel it would very-worth your while to stop in and enjoy being spoiled rotten. We came in from their own Iavarone next-door "Super-Market", saw it and went in. Our Pasta Meals were outrageously delectable. We went in during a weekday late afternoon for an early dinner. Table Server at our Table the moment we were seated. We were served "hand-over-foot" spoiled rotten by our every-present, ever-attentive Table Server. The Prices were unbelievably decent to our pocket books, even with drinks and a very-generous (well-deserved) Tip included. We WILL be back again the very-next time we are hungry and in the neighborhood.More
