We dine at Cipollini at least twice a month, if not more. The food is consistently good, and we do have our favorites (baked clams, grilled octopus, chicken parm, halibut). Every now and then we switch it up, but however we order, we are never disappointed. The specials usually have a nice variety, and if they have the halibut milanese, grab it, it is the best. The drinks are also good, and the wine selection is short, but well represented and good. The wait staff is generally attentive and on the ball, it is a very energetic restaurant so you might have to flag them down now and then, but you are never abandoned.

Though the food was good, our welcome to the restaurant was not pleasant. My friend and I were ignored and then rudely shown to a table. Our server was friendly, however when we waited for our check for a very long time. I have been going to Cipollini's for a few years, and this was my first unpleasant experience.

It’s a very fun place to go! Has a fancy pizza & steak house feeling combined! My kids love it & if I’m with my high maintenance wife she loves it too! The staff is great, host is great & place is very upscale! In the summer sit outdoors & have a great time!

The kitchen cannot follow simple instructions. I ordered salmon medium rare. It arrived more than well cooked. On second attempt, my salmon arrived still swimming in the middle: raw, raw, raw. By the third attempt, my lunch mate had nearly finished her salad while I had lost my appetite altogether. Will not return.

Its a great place for a casual get-together or a business luncheon. The service and the ambiance were top-notch, but the food was inconsistent. The grilled octopus appetizer was a little dry, but the desserts were incredible. Definitely worth a 2nd chance.

Fun night out. Great service. Great seafood risotto. Great salads. Best bar tender crew on Long Island. Lively atmospohere. And the surest sign that Spring may actually be coming was the opening of their outdoor dining area.

Was seated at a table near the front door which was cold, didn’t help that they kept the door open so servers could bring food out to 6 people sitting outside. When asking waiter and maitre’d to close door we were pretty much ignored. Had coffee and when asked for refil busboy cleared table, waiter then took dessert orders and when I asked for my coffee I got one but was charged for a second cup- waiter did remove it from bill when I brought it to his attention. Food has gone downhill, portions much smaller than used to be. Attitude has gotten worse with staff making you feel like they are doing you a favor serving you. It’s in good location that’s why they’re always busy.

It was hoping last night...That didn't effect the professional curious attention we received. Wonderful tomato soup, grilled octopus and my friend had a very nice seafood salad. Sorry I cant recall the name of the wines we had one was a white Greek wine, mine was a wonderful red super Tuscan. Reservations help. Great front of the house crew. Hector always gracious.

We were there for a quick lunch meeting and had to head back to work and it was perfect. The variety on the menu, the courtesy of the staff, the quality and taste of the food were all fantastic. I am actually planning to return and try a few other things on the menu....namely dessert because I was too full to have any this time. Thank you for a fantastic meal!

We love Cipollini! The food is great; the service is even better. The best part of Cipollini is the staff. EVERYONE, from the accommodating hosts to the talented chefs, attentive servers, gracious helpers, and even the charming bathroom attendant is absolutely wonderful. We always feel welcome, cared for, and cared about.
