Diner Reviews
  • "my first time at this restaurant but not my first dining out experience. while staff was amiable I felt things seemed disjointed. two different waiters came to table to take drink order. after telling second waiter we had already ordered he still insisted we tell him again. while in the middle of reciting specials waiter walked away and returned much later. had to ask someone else to finish specials so that we could relax and make our decision. food was dissapointing. my husbands pasta was smothered in sauce. we sent appetizer of mussels back to kitchen because the white wine sauce they were in tasted sour. with all that being said, everyone was very nice and tried to accomodate us."

  • "The food was very good. The service was not. Dishes were placed in front of the incorrect diners. Salads arrived already dressed, when it was requested to be put on the side. The noise in the restaurant was horrific. We left before dessert, in order to find a quieter place to talk."

  • "Small place we've visited under prior owners. This is a good improvement in terms of food and service, both of which were very good. Menu is mostly standard northern Italian, with some interesting options. Specials are, typically and unfortunately, higher priced, which, I guess, is also typical and why price is not volunteered by waiter. That always disappoints. All in all, however, it's worth a try and we'll probably return."

  • "We dined at Il Luogo on a Sunday evening, celebrating our anniversary. The food and service were wonderful, and they topped off the evening with a fruit platter for dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written on the side (and no charge!). They accommodated a gluten-free diet (gluten-free pasta is available, and a veal scallopini dish was prepared without any flour). This was our first time there, but we'll definitely be back."

  • "From the service to the ambiance makes Il Luogo an excellent place to dine. The staff is informative and attentive. The menu is varied and well chosen as are the nightly specials. Each part of the meal (appetizer to desert) is spaced out nicely, nothing is rushed nor are you asking "Where's my dinner?" My wife and I have dined here 5 or 6 times and each visit has been the same........quality, quality, and quality."

  • "Il Luogo is one of our favorite places to go. It is a local restaurant that can be compared to many of the finer Manhattan restaurants. The staff is very professional and the food is top shelf! I highly recommend giving it a try!! If you do you will return!"

  • "One of the specials that night was a lobster salad appetizer that was worth the price of admission by itself. The food was all very good to excellent. I'm not from the area and I don't know when I would have the opportunity to go there again, but I would recommend Il Luogo to anyone in the Eastern Queens/Nassau County area."

  • "We enjoyed a delicious meal and the service was attentive without overdoing it. One of our party's orders came out wrong and the correct entree was on the table in less than 5 minutes. It was wonderful to be in a busy restaurant where you could still carry on a conversation at your table without the surrounding noise drowning you out. We will definitely return."

  • "This was our second visit to this restaurant , we enjoyed our first visit but as with a lot of restaurants staying consistent seems to be difficult. Growing up in an Italian family in Brooklyn I sometimes find it hard to find good Italian food and this place was no exception. First the service was horrible. We sat at least 15 minutes before a menu was given to us and then only 2 for a party of 4. We were told they were short menus. We also need a high chair for my grand niece we finally got one after 10-15 minutes and it was broken, we asked for a replacement and after another 10-15 minutes were given back the same one! Told they have more on order. Food was just plain not good. Plain and simple! no flavor"

  • "Restaurant was small and ambiance was decent. The star though as the food! The crabmeat cocktail appetizer inside an avacado with mango was awesomely different in a good way. My seafood fra diablo over blank ink fettuccini was solid. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to foodies."

  • "We came here to celebrate closing on our very first house. The food is delicious and the staff is attentive. This wasn't our first time there and surely will not be our last. Between how a bottle of wine is served for you to dessert everything is delicious and memorable. It being so close to home it's a great pick for a great bite of food. I have already recommended this place to several of my friends who are tired of eating at the same restaurants"

  • "I have been to many Italian restaurants,and this restaurant ranks up there with the best,the service was five star,the sommelier made excellent suggestion,and the food was exceptional .this restaurant does not nickel and dime you - I felt that my time and my money were well spent. One additional comment -the marinara sauce is not to be missed."

  • "We started with the pear salad that may have been the best thing I have ever eaten. We then went onto the Black Squid Ink Pasta with seafood, and then Oso Buco and everything was just exceptional. We finished with a bread pudding. This is a place I WILL DEFINATELY revisit. The service was excellent the presintation was elegant. A must goto in Lynbrook"
