    My first visit to Tesoro was at a private party. They had regular dinners in their beautiful room which has a fireplace. The food was exquisite and the service was excellent. I returned recently with family and again the food and service was second to none definately my new hot spot

    We came to this place for the first time, and I must admit I cannot WAIT to go back. No exaggeration, this place is amazing. Our waiter, David was simply wonderful. For starters he suggested Portabello Mushroom & Mozzeralla Puff Pastry which was simply delicious. It' is not listed on the menu, you have to request it. Try requesting when you are making your reservations so they have it ready by the time you arrive. For the main course we decided on Rigatoni a la vodka; needless to say another mouth watering dish. The service is impeccable and the manager, Tony made sure to come to our table to ask us how everything was and then even upon our leaving. Being that we are vegetarian he also suggested making several other dishes for us, even though they were not on the menu. We are going to take him up on his suggestion very soon! This has now become our favorite Italian restaurant. It was a bit out of our way, but trust me the drive was worth it. I have already suggested it to all my friends . If you're in the area please do yourself a favor and go there! You will not be disappointed. BTW, if you want a good secluded corner table, ask for table no 45. Bon Appetit!

    We had an 8 reservation for 7 on a Sat evening & the hostess didn't seem too concerned about how long we were waiting when we were still waiting at 8:35. She merely informed us that she couldn't ask the table we were slated for to get up. When we finally sat down, the service was okay, not great; we had to consistently ask for more water. The food was delicious but the ambiance is nothing special, the service was just okay and for $160 per couple (everyone had two drinks, an appetizer and an entree) there are SOOO many nicer places to go to. If the restaurant would had offered us a round of drinks while we waited or apologized or sent over anything at all, we may have felt better about it but they did absolutely nothing.

    We were coming to Long Island from CT to see a show at the Westbury Theater and had no idea where to eat so this was chosen at random. Boy was it a good choice!! The food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our waiter even gave us a bag of ice so we could bring our doggie bag home to CT safely. If it wasn't 2 hours away it would surely be my new favorite restaurant! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

    A friend of ours has been dining here for (literally) decades, with "never a bad meal". No complaints here, and it looks to me like the next time will be very good, too. If you want very quiet dining, however, the main room will not do for you. You might request the back room if your party is large enough.

    We were celebrating a dear friend's birthday, and this was our first visit to Tesoro. The restaurant had been enthusiastically recommended by another Tesoro admirer. The welcome was cordial and warm and the ambience cozy. We were approached for our selection of beverages immediately which set a lovely tone of attentive but not frantic. Our server, Joseph, a very polished but never pretentious and really quite young man, seemed as though he had been doing this since birth. He was so relaxed and natural in his conversation. The list of specials was so extensive and impressive, that one hardly needed a regular menu which was just as tempting. The food was delicious, the presentation inviting and the service impeccable. A great night out. Go!

    We had previously dined here on a Sunday and had a pleasant experience. Not so on Saturday night. The service was spotty at best. Orders were forgotten or served without regard to the diners's requests. The noise level was absurd, even though we were seated in an alcove. They had booked a large party in their back room which added to the chaos. That created a mob scene in the bar area as people co narrated there. No return visits for us on Saturday night, that's for sure!

    Not living locally - I haven't been to Tesoro's in many years. I suggested we meet some friends at Tesoro's being that it was half way between both our homes. Being a Friday night - I had made a reservation - so we were still able to be seated as soon as we walked in the door. The food was excellent - the choice was difficult - since everything sounded so delicious. All of us ordered a different meal - from fish - pasta - meat - & we were all sampling each others b/c they were all so good. We made sure we had room for the raspberry crumb cheesecake - which was outstanding. The staff is very attentive. Complimentary after dinner cordial a plus..we will definitely be back very soon - b/c of the food - service & hospitality we received.

    This Italian restaurant feels old and tired. There was really no ambiance in the big open room. In fact the restaurant was quiet but it took an awfully long time to get our meals. The ceasar salad was overly dressed and the rest of the meal just ok. While the food was fine, the experience was nothing special. We left feeling there was no real reason to return
