Cala di Mare is in dire need of a competent chef.Here is a very attractive venue with a welcoming staff, providing fair service with a great Jazz duo adding to the ambience only
to be dis-illusioned by the food itself.Tasteless,is the only word that comes to mind.We chose
Cala di Mare because we were fans of the Musicians,but we will never dine there again.

I selected this restaurant according to the name because my wife likes sea food...
however, as a steak lover, my Rib eye steak was superb.
great atmosphere, friendly owner and free parking in the heart of the town, made our outing a very pleasant experience.
well done Roberto.

The Mussels Adriatic appetizer was outstanding, recommended to all when it is offered. The Pork Tenderloin over Wild Rice entree special was unbelievably tender and delicious. Chef Edwards in the kitchen continues to amaze and please with his creations.

There was a limited menu when we ate at Cala di Mare on Valentine's Day. Normally that would mean the restaurant would be serving its best food and providing the best service. However, based on our experience that evening, we wouldn't go back to try the rest of the menu. Three course meal for $35 seemed like a good deal but it wasn't worth the money. Appetizers: single crabcake was small and had too much filler. Caesar salad OK but nothing special. Mozzarella and tomato, small portion, just OK. Mains: Ravioli fair, salmon below average, and the chicken was breaded which should not occur at any decent Italian restaurant. For perhaps the third time in 35 years of dining with my wife, she had to put ketchup on the steak. Dessert: average, but it's likely the chocolate cake and cheesecake were store-bought. Best part of the meal: the potato chips at the bar, which we grabbed whenever we walked by. Sorry, but there are much better options in Rockville Centre and surrounding towns.
