  • "Went for lunch, and at that time this is a perfect spot with great food and service. From prior experience at dinner time, while the food and service are still terrific, the noise level does go up considerably. Still, one of the, if not the best Italian restaurants in Rockville Centre."

  • "Have not dined here in over 13 years. Food was outstanding. My wife had an amazing chicken special and I had the Filet Mignon. Both dishes were to perfection. The service was attentive and the atmosphere here is great. I appreciate an Italian menu with many different choices and good depth like Dodici has. Definitely going back!!!!"

  • "Decided to try Dodici after two years for a family birthday dinner. The food was okay but not as memorable as it had been in the past. The most annoying thing was the noise level. Very loud with large groups of people in the main dining area and the general acoustics of the place. We were placed at a table that required one person to sit in the traffic aisle. When seated we questioned this and were told by the hostess that it would be "fine" and that the staff would walk around. After 15 min. of being bumped into as the staff continued to try and get by and multiple "excuse me", we had to have our table moved with drinks etc. "

  • "I knew valentine's day would be busy... Waited quite a while for waiter to come over - so we ordered drinks, appetizer & entree at one time. Bread water and appetizer were timely. Had to ask for drinks a 2nd & then a 3rd time. Entrees came out in a reasonable time and we're quite good. Chicken scarpariello advertised as having sweet sausage but contained several very spicy pieces and several were beyond burnt. Water glasses were never refilled. Food was above average but service was not."

  • "We have been to Dodici many times before and that is why we decided to go back there. Because it was Valentines Day the service was slower than normal. We were seated in front up against the window and every time the door opened we got a draft . The door did not close all the way which was fixed after we spoke to the manager. The table in back of us was extremey loud and the restaurant is not a noisy one. If not for that and the slower service the food was very good as well as the wine We would return since it is not normally like this."

  • "The food and service is consistently very good. I have never had a bad meal here. My only complaint is that the restaurant is very crowded and loud. It's hard to have a conversation. But, if you like Italian food, this is a great local restaurant to eat at."

  • "We found ourselves on an unplanned stay in Rockville Centre on a snowy December night and Dodici was on a list of hotel recommendations. It turned out to be perfect for a snowy winter's night. It has a very broad menu mixing standard Italian fare with some creative dishes, and everything we had was very well prepared (particular kudos for the most tender calamari I've had in years). A nice surprise was the wine list, which had a really nice selection at various price points. Aside from great service, which was attentive without being intrusive, it was very nice for the manager to stop by a couple of times. All of the staff was friendly and very welcoming. If I lived in the area, I'd become a regular."

  • "Love going to Dodici. It's a staple for us. But pray tell, WHY WHY when one goes out to dine with friends, must there be such loud music in the background. Music is for people who don't converse with each other and sit at tables and play with their Iphones. But if you want to converse at the table you have to raise your voice and that's the only complaint. A restaurant of this stature doesn't need music. Without the music, conversation is always energetic at Dodici's. Please STOP THE MUSIC!!!! Food, Service, Ambience never fails. It is always comfortable."

  • "We have dined at Dodici many times...The food is always delicious, and the menu is very upscale for a "Long Island" restaurant. Unfortunately, it takes a day for my ears and throat to recover from screaming across the table to friends due to the constant noise in this restaurant. They really need to address this problem."

  • "The food was terrific and so was the service, but this is not the place for a romantic dinner. The noise level was ear shattering. I've been there for lunch- a much better choice."
