A word from La Volpe Ristorante

Located on eastern Long Island in Center Moriches, La Volpe is a year-round destination for a fantastic culinary adventure that is a perfect balance of quality and value.

Executive Chef Franco Volpe and his mother Maria Teresa carefully compiled a Mediterranean-inspired menu that combines Franco's creative contemporary style and Maria Teresa's traditional family recipes. The eclectic menu is filled with fresh seafood, all-natural steaks and chicken, hearty pastas, home-style soups and light, tasty salads. La Volpe Ristorante also boasts an unparalleled award winning wine list with something for everyone.

Not to be outdone, Anton Pizzeria, next door, serves the finest wood-burning brick oven pizza and specialty pies outside of Italy, plus world class catering.

    This is quite a restaurant. From the minute you walk in you are greeted with kindness. The service here is phenominal. The food is quite unique. The specials of the day are dishes that are rare. It takes a fine chef to concoct and mingle flavors so that they compliment one another. Have been here numerous times and always look forward to the next time.

    Having moved out of state, when I come into town again, I have to make a trip to my favorite restaurant. The food and service are always amazing! The steak/Gorgonzola salad, tuna avocado, and chicken dijonaise are standouts!! I always recommend La Volpe to family and friends.

    We had driven past La Volpe many times while traveling Montauk Highway and always made a mental note to visit them to sample the cuisine as several of our friends highly recommended the restaurant. We made a reservation for Sunday evening and were not disappointed. Ample parking and attractive exterior were the first things we noticed. Once inside, the muted lighting, high ceilings and dark detailed wood exuded a very comfortable and homey quality. Pictures of famous Italian personalities adorn the interior. The bar beverages are fairly sized and priced. We chose seafood specials for apps and entrees (yellow-fin tuna, salmon and stuffed flounder) and were very pleased with all three. The sous-chef did a fabulous job on these dishes.

  • Great Birthday luncheon!

    Dined on 3/1/2014
    Eight of our family met to celebrate the eldest's birthday for lunch. One of us ordered a splendid pinot grigio. At our corner table, we ordered a variety of dishes from soup and salad to veal alla marsala (which was not actually on the menu but something similar was). The only accommodation the waiter couldn't make was to accept an order for a chicken parm hero (also not on the menu). An alternative was ordered instead, and just as all the other choices, was perfect. The desserts were sized just right, and really delicious. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant. We highly recommend La Volpe for great Italian cuisine.

    La Volpe is a consistantly good experience. If I choose from the menu, or from the specials, they NEVER dissappoint. I have been here many, many times, solo, coupled and with family and friends and the food, even if it looks as if it should be heavy, is always light and a pleasure to eat. Thank you again.

    Me and my fiance love to eat here. The food is great. The menu is extensive and don't be afraid to ask for traditional meals that are not on the menu. The service is as good as the food. I've had yet to have a waiter or waitress that wasn't charming and extremely patient with us. It is one of our favorite places to eat. Figure 2 people, apps., entrees, cocktails, and deserts should run you around $120 plus tip.

    Being from Brooklyn, I find it hard to find good pizza and good Italian food in Long Island. La Volpe has the best food I have ever eaten (sorry Grandma). I have been there 3 times now and it is consistently amazing. I had the Chicken Dijonnaise. It was the best meal I have even eaten. My wife has the Filet Mignon and she couldn't have been happier. It was a nice romantic night that made us smile constantly. Thank you for a great evening!

    My fiancé and I have been here a few times. Every time we go when we leave, we ask ourselves how come we went. It's local so it's convenient but we're always disappointed staff is friendly, but that's the only positive aspect in our opinion. I am a big "foodie" so it's hard to please me but my fiancé is much more lenient and he was disappointed as well.

    We originally found LaVolpe by accident. We were headed to another restaurant in the area, but it was close for a private party. Lucky us, because this has become one of our favorites. The service and food are exceptional. We like to go on the earlier side, around 6pm because it's not that crowded or noisy. By the time we leave it's packing in. Highly recommend this establishment.

    Being an Italian cook, I am not fond of eating Italian out, that is until La Volpe opened its doors. I have never had a bad or mediocre meal. The food is always fresh, superb and tastefully and creatively prepared. We have celebrated many family occasions here. Today we celebrated my birthday! If you don't see what you want on the menu, they are very willing to make it. When I recommend LaVolpe to my Italian friends, I tell them, 'If you don't like the food, knock on my door and I'll make you a meal." I live not far from La Volpe. No one has ever been disappointed!

    This was my second visit to La Volpe. The first, a birthday celebration with family, was memorable. So, for this next birthday celebration, it was the only choice. The service is top notch, attentive without being intrusive. But the food is the star. La Volpe's menu has something to thrill every palate and each choice just a little different than you'll find anywhere else. Of course, it is such a spectacular choice that planning ahead is the only way to avoid disappointment. Reservations strongly suggested, especially on the weekend. (Thanks for your help, OpenTable!) My compliments to the chef, the staff, the owners.

    This was our third visit to La Volpe, and it continues to be an outstanding experience. We celebrated our wedding anniversary with their amazing fig and goat cheese appetizer, and enjoyed wonderful, made -to-order entrees that couldn't be beat. We feel like we're in Tuscany when we go there, and the service is impeccable. Its a great find. The best part for me is that they offer a large selection of gluten free dining options, and I'm very thankful! Can't wait to go back.
