    This is my favorite Italian restaurant. There's a lot of competition when it comes to good Italian food on Long Island, but this truly is one of the best. Fresh homemade pasta, Creative dishes and generous portions are served with a smile!

    Fourth time at this restaurant. Despite being set back in a shopping center featuring a supermarket, everyone has found Fanaticos! We come here every time we have show tickets to Westbury Music Fair. It's close to the venue (literally takes 5 mins), convenient, and fabulous. Portions are generous, prices are reasonable. Salad fed 4 people. Dinners easily split between 2 people. We had 1 appetizer, 1 salad, 2 entrees for 4 people. We were stuffed. All had coffee or expresso and bill was $100. Should be called Fantastico!

    I haven't been to Fanatico's in about two years and it was as delicious as it was back then. Now I know it is only a short distance from work and no too far from home to go more often. My boss also enjoyed the gluten free pasta.

  • Long Island eatery w/NYC prices
    NYCperson
    Dined on 3/2/2014
    Found this restaurant as a middle meeting place to meet our Long Island friends (in between our homes); the food was good and quick service (although the staff serves "over you" and one has to reach for his/her plate!); but for the high prices more like NYC, no coat check & seating is tight so you end up with packing your coats on the floor or behind a chair - not the best for comfort! The tab for dinner (w/basically one person in the couple drinking and a shared salad and a shared dessert) tip included was near $100; not worth a second try in our book...

    We have gone to Fanatico many many times. There used to be a wait for a table, but since it now takes reservations, we sit right down as soon as we arrive. We have ordered all different kinds of foods, from delicious salads, to gourmet seafood and chicken, veal, and meat dishes. Everything is scrumptious. Sizes of the meals are quite large, and the prices for the entrees are reasonable. Service is great - many waiters and waitresses have been there for a long time. They are friendly and make suggestions if we can't decide on what to order!! All in all, a great place to go for dinner. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    Having dined here a couple of times we made a reservation for a couple of friends for a quick Saturday night dinner. That was anything but what happened. Our reservation was for 7:15 and we were seated promptly.. Not a single morsel of food (we ordered Salads) was served before 8:15. We were never asked whether we wanted drinks (we did want them). The salad came at 8:15 and the food came at 8:16. The entrees were cold and had to be sent back. The waitress, clearly a fish out of water, did not offer us dessert but brought a mishmash of cannoli insides and blueberries and tried to send us on our way. We refused to yield.. All in all, bad experience. When we said something to the hostess, her indifference was papable.

    We had a great time Saturday night. Our server was wonderful as was every part of our meal. The server gave us time in between our courses and we were not rushed at all. We can't say enough about our dining experience on Saturday night and all the other nights we have come for dinner.
