    Greatest Italian food can be found here for lunch and dinner. Eggplant lasagna is a specialty not to be missed. Terrific soups and all kinds of dishes and they are very flexible if you want something cooked a special way. Two thumbs up here!

    I have known Jimmy for many years, but have only recently followed him to the restaurant he transplanted from the City. Why I waited so long, I have no idea. Just being in the restaurant, watching the owner interact with customers, seeing the enthusiasm he and his staff bring to the meal is refreshing. But along with the great atmosphere, you'll find Italian cuisine that is at the top of the charts. The white truffle pasta is not to be missed. Trust Jimmy on his wine selections as well. In Italian Il Sogno means The Dream--aptly named.

    Love the food and service here at Il Sogno. The best Italian food in Westchester: have never had a bad experience here. From soups,to salads to main courses everything is excellent. They are very pleasant to deal with too, and very accommodating too: will do any dish for you. Love this place! Jimmy is a pro and his chef, a genius.

    After being seated promptly, it took at least 6 or 7 minutes before someone came over and hand us menus. The restaurant was not busy. It was the manager (owner?) who finally told us the specials and gave us menus. After that everything went smoothly. It was a long list of specials. We had a tough time deciding what to choose. We split the eggplant lasagna (no noodles) as an appetizer. It was very good. Nice layers of eggplant, cheese and a flavorful sauce. Our entrees were just as good. I had a nice size bone-in tender pork chop smothered with peppers, onions and mushrooms. Yum. Husband had homemade pasta with veal ragu. He enjoyed it but would have liked more pasta. We are looking forward to visiting Il Sogno very soon.

    Had eaten here several times before and liked the food, while the price was reasonable. However, they only offered a special "Mother's Day menu" on that day and it was extremely overpriced. Disappointed with that!

    We were so impressed with our visit on a Sunday during restaurant week that we returned the nextSaturday. We began with the pear gorgonzola salad and it was very good. I ordered flat pasta with shrimp and small scallops. It was delivered with a small portion of the pasta and ten baby scallops - no shrimp. I brought it to the attention of our waiter who did not return to our table until the end of the mear. He apologized and said the must have made a mistake in the kitchen, but that was it, so I paid a hefty price for a scant meal that was not consistent with the description on the menu. I was very disappointed and frankly, if not for this incident, Il Sogno would have been our new favorite restaurant.

The staff is as professional as any of the best restaurants in NYC, and the food is over-the-top delicious. The menu is creative and the chef clearly knows how to cook, and must love his job, because this si some of the best food I've ever eaten. Do yourself a favor and go eat here...now!

    We decided to return to Il Sogno because it's Restaurant Week, and ordinarily the price range is a little beyond our budget. We had an extremely satisfying experience. The food was excellent! I hope that Restaurant Week brought and rewarded many new diners because, frankly, another reason we have avoided Il Sogno is that no one ever seems to be there. Maybe being nestled among Dunkin Donuts, MacDonald's, Burger King, and gas stations is not the most propitious location for an upscale Northern Italian style restaurant.

    I love Italian food and a few years ago, my girlfriends 60th was held here. I was so glad to be introduced to this Italian gem. I grew up in this area and had driven past it a million times but never eaten here. What a delightful surprise. Probably the best Italian food outside of Italy! And I worked for Gourmet magazine, so I know good food! This is great, and you must have their eggplant lasagna: out of this world. And their soups too. And everything else! Lol.

    Best Italian food in Westchester County. No contest. When it comes to soups, salads, main courses, you name it, this kitchen turns out the best Italian food in the county, night after night, day after day. Their eggplant lasagna is my favorite dish here, and I never tire of it....their soups are first rate and they add extra touches at the start of your meal and to end your meal that are delicious and first rate.

    From the outside, you would pass right by this spot - but you will regret not giving it a try! While it looks like a converted drive-thru restaurant (and its roots probably date back to something like that given overall area), this is a true local gem. Food specials of the night - from a broccoli rabe soup with a potato base (no cream) to the linguini with truffle sauce that we shared at our table, to the special veal milanese chop (pounded and prepared deliciously; enough to feed 4!), everything was delicious. Service was great, including the menu offerings outlined by the owner at the outset. We did not even need to open our menus. At we were given a great suggestion for an Italian red wine that was decanted at our table!

    The food was just so-so. The eggplant lasagna appetizer was the best thing we had. The waiter speedily named about 15 specials -- 2 soups, 2 salads, 2 other appetizers, 3 meat entrees, 3 pasta entrees, 3 fish entrees, etc. and THEN hands you the menu. It's too much, too quickly! The staff is efficient but not friendly. The atmosphere is "traditional Italian" and a bit tired. Overall, not a great dinner. Won't be back.

    Casual dinner here January 25. Very light crowd for a Friday night, restaurant probably half-full and almost nobody at the bar. Location probably works against it, because although it's in a great spot as far as vehicle traffic, it shares an intersection with a McDonald's and Dunkin' Donuts so perhaps many folks don't take it seriously and give it a try. Our waiter real golf so many appetizers and entrées specials that we almost couldn't keep up, but suffice it to say that there something for anyone's preference. From our greeting at the door to the martinis at the bar, to the casual atmosphere, solid attentive service, and varied menu... We would definitely recommend this gem in Port Chester.

    chose this restaurant because the reviews were all very good. Was surprised that the place was quite empty on a Friday night - maybe due to the holiday weekend. The wait staff was attentive. Extremely long list of specials - would have been better if there were printed and left at the table - too many to remember. Our friends got there early and sat at the bar for a drink - no wine by the glass at the bar, yet we were able to order wine by the glass at the table. That doesn't make sense to me. We all had salads and fish - very pleased with our meal. I would go back if I wanted a very quiet place to dine.

    The pasta with truffle cream and veal shank were outstanding and the sole excellent. Lovely waitstaff. Not very popular on a wintery Friday - perhaps due to the odd location on the Post Road strip. Look forward to exploring the menu on return visits.
