Diner Reviews
  • "The noise level was so high it was impossible to hold a conversation! You couldn't even hear the waiter from one end of the table to the other. The restaurant was badly under-staffed. This was the 3rd time we tried it on a weekend and never again. Our waiter, John (aka Larry) was pleasant and really movin' to please everyone but he was working a dozen tables and you had to grab him as he was passing. Food was good but the wait for it was ridiculous!"

  • "New menu........some old favorites were absent but they will make it for you. This time we were a group od 7with several appetizers and 7 entrees. Very plentiful and a lot of take-home. TOO much salt"

  • "Although I've worked in the Carle Place area for years, I had never been to Passion Della Cuchina prior to last Friday's visit. We had a little trouble finding it because it was the last restaurant in a strip of stores. We were pleasantly surprised at the upscale decor. There was an outdoor patio walled off from the parking lot, which was very attractive. I am sorry that we didn't sit there and will ask to do so next time, weather permitting. The bread was excellent and we were also treated to rice balls which were delicious. Our main courses were tasty and well presented. The service was a bit lacking, which was the only negative I can think of. We will be back!"

  • "Beginning when we walked through the door until we were leaving was not just attentive but also warm and welcoming. We were treated like friends, as if we had been going there forever. The waiter was attentive and he cared about how we were enjoying our meal. The food was delicious. We had mozzerella burrata dish and baked clams to start, then I had the Cavateli with Sausage and my husband had a pasta dish with shrimp and our friend ordered Mushroom Risotto. All these dishes were served in different shaped bowls and were a feast for our eyes. They all tasted wonderful. They were fresh and hot. All and all it was a great dining experience for us. I would not only go back myself but I would recommend it to my family and friends."

  • "Food was good. Service was lacking a little bit. Not horrible but could use improvement. Dined outside because inside is abnormally cold. Not a big fan of dining outside but this was pretty nice."

  • "I tried Passione with a groupon and have made this a regular spot to dine. The waiters are friendly, helpful and attentive. Charlie, who is one of the partner, is always walking around and checking on the guests. The food is delicious and the portions are generous. They offer a wide variety as well."

  • "We were looking for a nice place to dine with friends on a Saturday evening. Though we'd never eaten here, this restaurant was highly recommended by my son-in-law. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was pleasant and attractive, and the food was great. From the fried calamari appetizer, to the molten lava cake dessert, we enjoyed every bite. We will definitely be back!"

  • "When we first arrived here, I had no idea it was related to the wonderful Emilio's in Commack. Knew at that point the meal would be terrific and we were not disappointed. Weather permitting, you should definitely sit outside. My friend felt as if she was at a party in a Tuscan villa. Fantastic!! Thank you, Charlie, for suggesting this. The food is delicious, starting with the bread. Any special requests are honored with great ease. The sole and shrimp delicato is a very tasty dish. Just needed a little more lemon. The shrimp scampi was inhaled. The servers and bartender made the meal even better--friendly and fun. We were too full for dessert. Maybe next time. Overall, this is a fantastic place and you should go!!!"

  • "I love this place and have eaten there several times in the past month. Each experience has been perfect--until this one. Maybe it's because it was a Saturday night? The parts that were good, were very good. Our server was really friendly and we loved sitting in the outdoor courtyard. Our drinks were amazing too. Certain other things, were just off. I ordered the same dish I always get, and this time it was almost unrecognizable. Ingredients were missing! One part of our meal came out just as we were finishing our meal. We still had a great time overall, but it just wasn't the night we thought it would be. I'll give them another chance for sure though."

  • "The service was uniformly excellent throughout the meal. We didn't order any appetizers, so the waiter brought us all complimentary rice balls which were delicious. Both the wine list and the menu were huge with something for everyone. The mixed cocktails we ordered were all excellent. The specials were all listed on a separate that was on the menu on the table, so there was no straining to read blackboards. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, and was able to make substitutions for some side dishes with no hassles. The main courses were all very good and the portions were more than sufficient. A nice feature is that many of the dishes can be ordered either individually or family style. Nice outdoor dining area too. A great find."

  • "This restaurant is tucked away in a parking lot that I don't often go to and boy am I glad we found it. The food was delicious and the server and owner were very attentive and on the ball. We all enjoyed our meals and had a vast variety of great food. The calamari here is extremely good and in a different, flavorful sauce. They even gave us free rice balls, which was a nice touch. The meatball appetizer was fabulous as well. I had the rigatoni with chicken in marsala sauce which was so yummy. Everyone's meal here was great from the steak to the salmon. We had no complaints. Highly recommend!"

  • "I am Italian and my husband and I love to cook so when we go out for Italian we want a restaurant that delivers more then your typical average dish. Everything I have eaten there so far is delicious including their hearty pasta dishes, crispy calamari, flavorful meatballs etc. etc. The wait staff was also very accommodating."

  • "This is a restaurant you might never notice since it's "hidden" in the back of an unassuming parking lot, but it is not to be missed! I have been here four times so far and except for a bad seating disaster (which I am choosing to forgive once), it has been great each time! I have not had one issue with service or food and would highly recommend it to everyone."

  • "My friends and I dined at Passione for the first time the other evening. WOW! was the reaction we all had. We were welcomed and seated by a wonderful gentleman that made sure our dining experience was outstanding. He treated us like family! The food was superb! Our waiter, James, was extremely hospitable and attentive--without being overbearing. We have decided to make Passione our new home since we felt so relaxed and comfortable and everything about Passione was so beautiful!"

We are all Italian so we are use to good food and this restaurant exceeded our expectations. Our waiter Jonathan was fantastic. He was very attentive and even made suggestions to make our meal better. We had appetizers to dessert. Everything was incredible. This is now our new favorite restaurant and we will be back soon."

  • "Our party of four ladies had the chicken parm, chicken marsala, eggplant rollitini and filet of sole. Each of us loved our dishes. You can't eat atmosphere, but there was oodles to spare. The service was impeccable. Somehow, you are made to feel special in an unassuming way. The freshness and quality of food could not have been better. The prices are unbeatable. We can't wait to return for another great meal. PASSIONE is a very apt name because you can taste the passion in their food. A happy and truly memorable dining experience!!!"
