Diner Reviews
  • "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!!!"

  • "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!"

In addition, the food was fantastic and the portion sizes were accommodating. The Penne ala Vodka and the Fried Zucchini Sticks were a favorite!"

  • "Had a very nice meal recently with my wife and daughter. Food was a step ABOVE even Fanatico which is a local favorite of ours. Although menu is very similar to Fanatico, it seems like the chef "kicks it up at notch!" We'll be back"

  • "My husband and I had dinner here with another couple this past weekend. Everything was fantastic. They sat us on time (6:30pm on a Saturday). The menu is extensive. 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."

  • "Did not expect to find the level of food and service for a place tucked in the corner of strip mall. Chicken (tender and moist) francaise and some salad and a side of pasta perfectly cooked for $10 for lunch?"

  • "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!!!"

  • "We have always visited this restaurant, a sister to Emilio's and Fanatico, during the week. The food is inventive and delicious. It is prepared when you order it - please don't expect it to arrive immediately at your table. The food is SO worth the few extra minutes wait. We understand that weekends are hectic so consider dining during the week - we'll see you there."

We have been to many places on LI and were very pleased with the food and service. We will definitely come back, and ask for our waiter John C. Thank you for a pleasant experience. "

  • "Service always FAR exceeds expectations. Food was excellent and we were well taken care of. Bringing a 16 month old little boy to a "nice restaurant" isn't always easy but this place welcomes my son with a smile and a mashed up meatball. He happens to be very well behaved, but there is never a rolled eye when I need let him stretch his legs a bit. The food in Emilio's restaurants is ALWAYS top notch, but this place is by far my favorite. Everything from the bread, to the salads to the desserts is delicious, and I don't even have to mention the pastas and entrees. The Fusilli Passione and Rock Star Pasta are to DIE for and my husband needs his Bronx Tail fix at least once a month. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!"

  • "This was our second Family celebration in two weeks at Passcione and once again it did not disappoint! Last time the place was crazy and we were so happy we had our Open Table reservation. This time it was much quieter but either way we love this place! We once again had Vito who is an excellent waiter and decided to be a little more daring this time and 3 of the 4 of us had specials. They were to die for!! This is not a cheap neighborhood pizza place and if you want you can have a pricey dinner here, but if we have a basic pasta and go on the cheap side or pull out all stops, the service, food and the whole meal is tops!!"

  • "Checked in at the front desk & the host had a bit of an attitude, not the way to start off dinner. My first course was the beet & goat cheese salad which would have been delicious if they had not over dressed it, ask them to put the dressing on the side. Next was the grilled chicken parmigiana, the chicken was dry, & not very tender. The marinara sauce was unexpectedly spicy, tasted more like a medium fra diavolo sauce. The eggplant rollatini would have been better if the marinara wasn't so spicy. Another dish ordered was chicken de Napoli was over battered which made it heavy tasting. The best part of the dinner was the desserts. I don't think we will be returning again."

  • "This was my first time at Passione and I had been looking forward to dining there. We sat at the bar and waited about 10 minutes for the wait staff to set up our table. While we waited, we had sangria at the bar and it was excellent! We ordered the rock star pasta and shrimp scampi, both of which were phenomenal! The only drawback was that the server seemed a bit rushed and overwhelmed. He wasn't rude, but he was not particularly attentive either. In the end, however, we have an overall great experience and would definitely return."

  • "We are from Commack, and frequently take out from Emilo's we love their Sicilian pie and of course their bar pie! So we decided to try Passione, we loved it, the pastas were fresh and delicious. My husband had the salmon and thought it was excellent, the wait staff was very attentive, and desserts my favorite were awesome. Overall and excellent dining experience!"
