Cala di Mare Italian Grill Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
We had a great CHRISTMAS Eve dinner. We tried to get reservations in a few other spots, but wanted Italian with some fish. The service was impeccable. The food was good. The wine list was okay. They are very accommodating and extremely helpful. We had a 3year old with us and the busser (Alberto) was extremely nice and friendly. He was like a big brother to the baby. We would go back just for the service. It made our night. Thank You.
In spite of the 4-5 star rating on Open Table reviews, this is a restaurant that, at the time of our visit, was patronized by an older crowd. My table of 4 ranged in age from 52-60 and we were the youngest in the room by nearly 10 years! There was also live music provided by a pianist who took "requests" as long it was something he liked. and a lounge-grade singer. For my dining group, we tend to get into lively discussions and it appeared there were older patrons who did not find this amusing.
Aside from this, the food was excellent and the staff was very good as well.
If you're looking for a place to take your Grandparents, they will not be disappointe.
Just went back to this terrific restaurant to share it our neighbors..... And it was even better with friends! They loved Cala... We were treated so well...and the food was absolutely first rate. This is simply a great restaurant that is looks elegant but is comfortable, quiet, well- run, reasonably priced...and serves delicious food. Nicest serving staff in RVC. You'll enjoy your stay.
This restaurant unfortunately is attached to a Best Western which probably turns a lot if people off. It shouldn't be an issue. Very pretty inside and food was excellent. The owner plans great things for the Fall, Sunday brunch and outdoor dining to name just 2. Please try it.
I was coming from the west coast and booked this for a rehearsal dinner. I booked it based on other reviews. The food, service, and atmosphere was perfect! The owner provided superior service and was very accommodating. He helped make a special occasion perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant.
It will be on my list on my next east coast visit.
