“Always a delight!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Our fourth visit to Calagero's was as pleasant and satisfying as the prior three - delicious food, prompt, courteous service and reasonably priced. The seafood dishes are exquisite, carefully prepared and cooked to perfection. The chicken and veal dishes are very satisfying and the vegetable accompaniments are always fresh, also cooked to perfection and nicely seasoned.
The daily luncheon specials also carry a nice wine selection and, if you have enough room for desert you won't be disappointed - just very full!!
All in all, worth a visit with your spouse and family, or your business partners who will definitely be impressed by your selection.

“Delicious Lunch!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Love this restaurant. Food is delicious. They were able to accomodate a party of 10. The bruschetta was awesome. The bread and olive oil they put on the table is great. Everyone in our party loved their meal. I tried the special calamari and pasta with peas and ham. Loved it. The drinks from the bar were great. Our server was awesome. She took great care of us. The owners even came out to say hello. This is a great place for a business lunch, lunch with the girls, a business dinner or dinner with a family. I have been here several times and will be back.

“A nice, quiet alternative to the restaurants on Old Country Road”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I was meeting an old friend I hadn't seen in over 30 years who was visiting LI on business. I saw that the top-rated restaurants in the area were mostly busy and noisy places on Old Country Rd, and selected Calagero's because it sounded like the food was good, not over-priced, and quiet enough for conversation. It turned out to be a good choice. The staff was friendly and helpful, the food was above-average, and the restaurant is attractive and definitely conversation-friendly.

I'll probably go there again when in the area.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Food was fresh, and meal was appropriately sized. Service was friendly. Small atmosphere makes for cozy atmosphere, not too cramped.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Once seated, we were served outrageous bread and herb infused olive oil. The bread was warm & fresh baked with a delicious crust. The olive oil was so tasty that you couldn't stop eating the bread! Our lunch was equally as delicious! The paninis were fresh & flavorful. The salad, croutons and dressing were exceptional. Lunch was so satisfying that we are looking forward to trying dinner!
