Cipollini Trattoria and Bar
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.
Always excellent!!! My fav place ever
As always great service.Charlie, Phil, Alex greatest bar team. Food exactly as we asked for. Hector a great ambassador at the front door.
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.
We went on a date
Celebrating is Always Fun at Cippilini... Our dinner was fresh & delicious. The service is wonderful. One of our favorite places!
Food is always delicious and service is excellent . Always crowded but always get seating within a short period of time . Love the bartenders . My favorite place .
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!
Table was ready upon arrival, service was great and food was phenomenal. Thank you!
Ridiculously crowded. No elbow or breathing room. Thank goodness for Hector and the top, top, top bar staff mixing up nerve calming elixirs ...
Always loud on a Thursday night.Always good food and service
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.
Great vibe and delicious foods!
Very congested place . Tables were too close . Waiters keep hitting me from the back .
service was way too fast- we felt very rushed and had t ask them to not take away the salad before we were done. Pizza was delish though
very, very noisy- not in a rush to go back
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.
Was pretty loud not gonna lie was very hard for me and my date to have a conversation, food was excellent as was the service I would definitely recommend it as a good spot for anyone
Great food and service was excellent
Great vibes, crowded as hell reservations a must. Muscles were amazing. Great menu
Lovely place to meet a friend for lunch and to sit and chat. We did n ot feel pressured to leave and had a nice, leisurely lunch. Will definitely come back!
It was Monday. Nice crowd. But not too loud which can happen here.
Always: Service w/ a Smile! Always: Fresh & Delicious!
Loki g forward to going back.
Love it here. Really enjoy the menu. The food is not heavy but satisfying. Loud but fun atmosphere. Food is fairly priced but drinks are very pricey.
The food and service were terrific as always. A staple for decent Italian flare!
Everything is always amazing at Cipollini! I love the prosciutto pizza!!!!
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.
Valentine’s Day As always was very good We had veal and shrimp stuffed clams napoleon cake Always enjoy the meal and service.
Valentine’s Day lunch!!!
Great food & service!!! Will be back soon!
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!
Consistently great food. Social scene very busy and loud.
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.
My favorite place of any restaurant on Long Island the biggest variety and selection very exciting atmosphere
Always a high noise level, which is why we prefer a late lunch or early dinner. Waiter was pleasant. Only complaint, some of the dishes were not served really hot.
Excellent food great service
Fairly loud and the food was decent, the atmosphere was overall fairly nice but the star of the event was the service. Our waiter was exceptional and elevated the experience.
Outstanding service food was delicious outstanding overall greeted from the time when we walked in and leaving the restaurant.
