Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Passione Della Cucica in a word was OUTSTANDING. Jason our server was attentive and had the best timing anyone could ask for in a waiter. The food was AMAZING!!! Everyone took photos of their plates they were so impressed. The drinks were delish. And most of the owners were GREAT."

  • "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!"

  • "Came with a groupon...have visited another 4 times since. We love the food here. Never a bad meal! The service can be slow (relaxed) but the staff work very hard and it is ALWAYS busy. Great food. Awesome atmosphere. Casual yet elegant. Can be a fun special occasion dinner or a typical Sunday evening dinner. We love this place."

  • "This is an aptly named restaurant since the creative chefs show their love for flavor in both traditional and newer dishes. You can do the family style classics or go off the beaten path. We were welcomed like old friends w/ many complimentary breads and a table starter. We had sole and shrimp dishes w pasta and risotto. Everything was delicious n perfectly balanced. Kids' pizza was large n they all enjoyed it for 2 days. Our expectations were low given proximity to Roosevelt Field but we were surprised at the quality n glad we took a chance. It is not 5 star foodie fare but it is above average for the whole family where u can find something for every taste. We will return for sure. Would also be good date night place."

  • "We always have a great time here ! Emilio makes everyone feel welcomed and Vito is a great waiter. Fusilli Passione 231 and Rock Star are two of our favorite entrees' . The meatballs are too YUMMY. Each entree is new and different then most Italian restaurants. Every group of friends we bring with us has enjoyed the experience. Bravo Emilio !!"

  • "The menu is extensive, the food is great from bread to dessert, and the service is excellent. The homemade pasta and bread are exceptional. The chocolate desserts are fabulous. My husband and I always enjoy our dinners here. On Sunday, we treated our daughter to dinner, and she loved it. We also recommended the restaurant to our son, and he and his girlfriend said it is now one of their favorite restaurants. We found this restaurant when it was just opened by using a Groupon deal, and we have returned several times with and without deals. Always a great dining experience!"

  • "I was not very happy here and it came recommended from a friend. The place was packed so maybe why the 3 drinks we ordered never made it to our table, but still wound up on the bill. My eggplant parmasean was awful! The entire plate was filled with sauce and the eggplant was small round patties like I could buy at BJ's. The waiter was running around trying to keep up with all if his tables that no one came back for 20 min to take my friends lobster out of the shell."

  • "Ont my previous 5 experiences here the food has been excellent, although there is usually a long wait for the food normally it is well worth it. This time it was my wife's birthday the food was ok not anything special. I ordered an appetizer and entree, the waiter returned twice the first time to have me pick another appetizer as they ran out of my first request p. the second time because they had just served the last of the entree that I ordered to another guest. This was very odd as it was around 6:45 and the restuarant was not very busy. My entree eventually came out and it was a dish I did not order. My wife urged me to send ir back but with my luck they would have been out of anything else that I would have chosen."

  • "Food is excellent, try their pizza and meatballs as an appetizer. The service is outstanding, the owner and manager regularly come around but are not intrusive (and may even offer some complimentary pizza or dessert)!!!!"

  • "I ordered the special Pappardelle Michelangelo - it had shrimp, portabella mushrooms and a pink cream sauce. Delicious. Mom had the manicotti. We were very satisfied with the food and the service. There was one table that had their two year old running around the restaurant the whole time - which was both annoying and distracting."

  • "The food was great. Service left a lot to be desired. While waiter was pleasant, he would reach across us, bend over and speak within inches of our faces and at times seemed pushy and hyper. For lack of a better word,, we found his behavior to be bizarre. We were also seated under a vent and at times it was unbearable to sit in the heat. Requested it be turned down but that lasted about 5 minutes. I would return but will make sure I have a different waiter and am not seated under a vent."

  • "Love sister restaurant Fanatico and Passione is just as good! Waiter brought us a free appetizer. Bread basket had a nice variety. Everyone enjoyed their meals; I had the Mushroom Ravioli with Marinara Sauce in lieu of butter - delicious! Spumoni for dessert was refreshing and Cappuccino always good way to end a meal. The place is bigger than I thought - two rooms with bar in between. Hope to go back soon!"

  • "We had to speak to manager. Waitstaff did not go to our table to see if we wanted anything for 50 min. Had to get water and bread from bus boy. Food came about 1 hr. after order was taken. Eggplant was smothered in sauce and cheese was no melted. Food was lukewarm."

  • "Although this time they actually honored our reservation, the service was terrible. We went through 2 bread baskets before our order came out. 2 of the 4 dinners were not hot when they finally came out. Definitely not worth the price of the dinner!"

  • "My first time dining at this restaurant. Had a reservation for lunch at 1:30. Nice decor, comfortable seating. The lunch menu was good with a variety of choices. The burrata and bacon appetizer was fantastic and my grilled chicken breast panini on ciabatta was very tasty. A little larger than what I had expected so I couldn't completely finish the warm berry tart with Haagen-Dazs ice cream that was out of this world! The staff was knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. Overall wonderful experience! Would definitely go there again."

  • "In trying to decide where my wife and I should dine on a cold Friday winter night...and not having made that decision an hour before we were due to dine.... I knew that I could always count on Passione to deliver an enjoyable...delicious...and satisfying meal. Whether it is the bread basket presented at the start of the meal....the chopped Caesar salad....or the delightful filet of sole....with the side of sautéed broccoli in lieu of the spinach on the menu....all offerings meet or exceed one's expectations. Our Open Table reservation was met with an immediate seating by the host upon our arrival....the parking valet gladly taking our car...again on a very cold winter night... as they say...a good time had by all."

  • "Passione is beautifully decorated and our server was fantastic. However, all of the food was severely lacking. They have the same menu as Fanatico in Jericho (same owner), and everything at Fanatico is noticeably much better."

  • "Ordered the chicken parm. Usually amazing. New chef? Chicken was tasteless. Sauce was so wrong. The texture was even wrong - grainy. Brought leftovers home and then thought - do I really want more of this? Threw it in the garbage. I've been to Passione at least 20 times and this was my first horribly disappointing meal."

  • "Friendly and helpful staff. Loved my dish, the skinny girl. I have a low carb lifestyle and most Italian restaurants do not meet my needs. Having the options of spaghetti squash or zucinni is such a pleasure. My friend enjoyed her meal as well. Maître'd even offered to assist us to the car because it was snowing. Have never met such a courteous host!!! Highly recommend."

  • "The dining room was quiet with only 2 other parties. Our server was friendly, not intrusive and gave us recommendations. We were served the wrong appetizer and a complimentary app. While the apps were delicious it was not what we ordered. Our dinner took awhile to come out considering it was not crowded but when the food arrived it was worth the wait. Our dinner was great, pasta was cooked perfectly. We loved the food. Up to this point the service was good. By this time we were the only diners left. We were informed a VIP table was coming in. From that point on we did not exist. Not offered an other drink or asked how were were doing. The entire staff was focused on the VIP table. We were impressed with the food but wouldn't go back."
