    Dined on 5/24/2013
    I have been to La Pace many times. This was a special birthday dinner for my husband. It was not up to its usual standards. The staff did not seem to know who ordered which dish and one guest who specifically said they had food allergies needed to send her meal back twice. I was very disappointed with the nuance as well. Dinner was not served in the regular dining room and I was unable to make a reservation for 7 pm even though when we arrived at 7:30 there were only 2 or 3 tables being served.

    Food ok, ambiance ok, service terrible. The best way to describe the service in this restaurant is "ignored" Lots of help ealking around but no one seemed to care about their job. There are many restaurants in Glen Cove that have better food and much better service at less cost. Don't waste your time here.

    Great date night! My husband and I really wanted a special dinner. We had never been to La Pace. Wow it was amazing!! Food was incredible, wait staff was top notch and the ambiance was just perfect with it's roaring fireplace. I had a special pasta dish with Lobster and shrimp and my husband had the veal. Just amazing. I would recommend this is everyone! Give it a try. You will love it.

    Dined on 3/2/2013
    We had a wonderful dining experience at La Pace with Chef Michael before attending a performance at Tilles Center. We were greeted by a friendly, attentive staff and a blazing fire in the fireplace. The other diners appeared to be throughly enjoying themselves, but the noise level was subdued, making it very easy to carry on a conversation. We ordered a salad that we intended to share, and it was thoughtfully plated on separate dishes. Our entrees of rigatoni with ricotta and basil and filet of sole almondine were delicious. A shared dessert, blueberry poundcake, was served as two smaller slices and accompanied by fresh blueberries, strawberries, and whipped cream. It was the perfect ending to a fabulous dining experience.

We will definitely give La Pace another visit. Just have a candle on the table, please! This was a great dining experience.

    We were celebrating getting back home after being without power, heat, or water for 2 weeks due to hurricane Sandy and we needed a special place to be pampered. La Pace was our first choice! Service was exceptional, outstanding, perfecto -we loved our waite, Jose! Our food was wonderful, as always! Only 2 complaints...they were trying some guy playing an electric piano and he was AWFUL!!! The waiter assured us it was the guy's first night. Hoping it will be his last!!! It was so bad it would be a reason not to return. Only other thing was it the room was a bit too bright, they should have dimmed the lights. Next time I'll just ask them to adjust and I'm sure they will. Great restaurant!

    The food was excellent as well as the service. It was a wonderful atmosphere. Even chef michael came around to make sure everyone was happy with their food. I love the fact that many restaurants participate in this restaurant week; it allows people to get out and try new places with great food at an affordable price. It was especially good timing because of the fact many people are without power or lost much of their food do to the storm. Overall a wonderful dining experience.

    La Pace is a fantastic restaurant. The service staff is exceptional! Along with Chef Michael they treat EVERY person in the restaurant as if they were the most important person there. Chef Micheal come to every table to not just greet you but to talk to you and make sure your experience is perfect. Chef Michael's menu and execution of each dish is superb. Their price fix menu is by far the best value of any restaurant on Long Island. We will be regulars here for a long time.

    The decor is tired and is in desperate need of an update, as is the menu. The average age of customer is over 50 so the ambiance was not lively. The food, for the most part, was what I could make at home. It was underwhelming. The dessert tasted store bought. I will say that the veal scallopine dish was good, very tender. But everything else lacked refinement and good flavor. I went to this place on the strength of its reviews online; hopefully this review gives people pause before considering going there for a meal. Oh...I didn't even mention the borderline domestic violence incident that took place 2 tables away from us. That was the cherry on top of the sundae...which was actually a highlight of the evening.

    We went during restaurant week and had a very positive dining experience. We were warmly greeted and found the service to be attentive and quite efficient. Most of the food met our expectations, with the exception of dessert (which was disappointing...Blueberry pound cake was not an adequate ending to an otherwise satisfying meal). For appetizers we had the mussels followed by the chicken marsala...portions were ample and food was quite tasty. We would definitely return again.

    I'm glad it was a Restaurant Week special. It was rated so highly in Zagat I knew it had to be good. I was very disappointed. The food lacked seasoning and was served at various temperatures. I really disliked the waiters loudly conversing in a foreign langauge as if the restaurant was their clubhouse. The establishment lacked class.
