A word from La Volpe Ristorante
"La vera cucina Italiana!" (The real Italian cuisine!) La Volpe Ristorante has that true, family touch and meticulous attention to detail that is not found in corporate restaurants. 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.

Diner Reviews
  • "We are always pleased with the food and service at La Volpe. The cuisine is authentic and experience is always satisfying. The only problem was that we needed a nap afterward because we were so full and content! We will be back."

  • "Went here numerous times and are never let down. Was our second wine pairing dinner that we attended. Excellent, need I say more? Please check out this Authentic Italian Restaurant."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Unfortunately this restaurant did not live up to expectations. We started off with some bread and olive oil which was fantastic however it took over an hour just to get our salads. After that it took another 45 minutes to get our main entrée. The service was absolutely her horrendous. our waiter seem like he didn't even know we existed. The food was incredibly salty as well. After waiting for two and half hours for our fairly simple order we decided to just go ahead and leave as it would probably not be worth the wait for dessert. Overall I would not really recommend this place I've had much better Italian food without the outrageous bill which unfortunately did not feel justified with the horrible service."

  • "Happy to be back after a 2 yr absence. Gracious service. Owner comped us a delicious Schiava wine just because of a delay in the kitchen. Food was yummy and well priced. Generous sized drinks as well. Definitely a keeper."

  • "Without hesitation, the very best in Italian cuisine, coupled with exceptional service. Have been coming to La Volpe's since the new restaurant opened--they just keep getting better. The daily dinner specials are fresh, varied and delicious. A Long Island fine dining experience to be remembered!"

  • "La Volpe never fails to satisfy our craving for creatively prepared Italian food. Since we are Italophiles and prefer to eat Italian cuisine only in Italy, we appreciate this restaurant!!! Additionally, the brothers Volpe and Mamma are welcoming always. We celebrate every special occasion here - and dine here in-between just for the pleasure of it. Grazie tantissimo!!!"

  • "There are many good places to eat in the area, however it is nice to have a more upscale restaurant for special occasions and when you feel the need to treat yourself and not eat in the local pizza place"

  • "I can't count the times we've been here. We are nyc dinners and if your looking for authentic Italian food give this place a try. Apps, entrees, desserts are above and beyond. If your looking for American Italian food with pastas and cheeses, well your not going to find it here. The chef is from Sicily he cooks with the finest pastas and ingredients and we have never walked away from our dinner feeling nothing but gratified and full. Give La Volpe a shot. "

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "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!"

  • "We are always pleased with the delicious food at La Volpe Ristorante. The service is attentive and exceptional. Bread is always served warm with delicious olive oil and replenished as you need it. The "specials" are always a treat. Since we live nearby, this is our go-to special place."

  • "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."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "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!"

Our dinner on the 14th of Jan was no different and I tried new items to me on the menu and was pleasantly surprised. It's in our neighborhood and we're glad it's close by."
