“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

If you're wondering where to go for dinner on Long Island, try La Famiglia in Babylon. The portions are family size so go with friends. We had 7 people and ordered 3 entrees plus a giant hot antipasto to start and 4 of us went home with doggy bags. The mussels al zuppo and the white clam sauce on linguine were my favorites but I had some chicken cutlets and penne La Famiglia also and thought it was some of the best food I ever had. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. They give plenty of bread for sopping, you will not be disappointed.

“Owner is unaccomodating”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We booked a party here a few months ago. As the party approached we realized we were not going to meet the minimum guests required for the private room. A month before the party we contacted the restuarant and asked to move the party to the downstairs and have a family style dinner we still were a party of 45. The owner flat out told us no. He said he reserved the upstairs for us and we were stuck with it. He said we were required to pay for the uneaten plates. We decided to move the dinner to a more accommodating restuarant. We called him to cancel. The owner was rude and combative . He told us we were bad business people and we just continued to explain the situation . Not once did he offer to upgrade the menu or throw something in if we paid for the uneaten plates. He also did not allow us to eat in his restaurant . I would of thought 45 people was better the nothing. He can keep my deposit to not have to deal with his arrogant attitude.

“Home Sweet Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We are always warmly welcomed when we enter La Famiglia. As soon as you are seated, a basket of warm bread arrives. What happens next? Bruscetta! Order the bruscetta! It is the best I have ever had, and my husband feels that he hasn't had better either. The fried calamari is greasless...just moist and crisp. Perfection. For dinner, we can't seem to tear ourselves away from the ravioli. We always order it with melted cheese. It's fresh pasta cooked to perfection.
If you haven't been here yet, give it a try. If you love homestyle Italian, you'll love La Famiglia!

We have beeb to La Famiglia several times, and have totally been blown away, with the food & service. We had a family gathering recently for my nephews confirmation, It was just awesome, the family style meals are huge, but most of all delicious.

just went to a business dinner at la Famiglia. Been to this restaurant in the past and had no plans on going back. Food and service were much better this time.
