I must say we were very disappointed with the experience. First of the food is suppose to be family style so we are thinking big portions as we were 8 people. Instead the portions that were coming out could only feed two adults and a child. The waiter should have told us the large portions we ordered were gonna be that small because then when food came out and was not satisfying we had to wait another 20min for more. Also, they forgot the roasted potato and just brought kids fries and told us that was the roasted potato until we saw exactly what we wanted go to another table. The food portions were not what they should be for family price and over priced for what came out. Very disappointed and don’t believe we will be going back or telling anyone else to visit.

Everything was great except for parking. Only a small valet lot and difficult street parking. On the positive side, service was fabulous, food was delicious and everyone was very accommodating.

I've been going to La Parma either in Huntington or Williston Park for over 20 years. Always a great meal. Service was attentive, food was great. Canoli's were very good and impressed my inlaws, who hadn't been there before.

Dinner for four started with fried zuccini and stuffed artichoke both were delicious .The italian bread is servered hot and has a delicious crust . They serve the bread with olive oil and spices.
We shared the penne with ricotta and mozzerella. Came out pipping hot the tomatoe sause is wonderful
We had the stuffed sole and the chicken scarpialo . Both dishes were perfecly seasoned . Portions are quite large and reheat well.
I had espresso and the brownie vesuvios both were delicious
A great Italin restaurant. Friendly and professional waiters

Tony still does an amazing job for the family style restaurant that was one of the originals that taught the industry. The wednesday night lobster special can not be beat and it was delicious as always. No one does chinese chicken like this place. The value and quality is always there and they make a great drink!. This has been one of my "go to" places for years!

Food good. 1st time visit there. Thought price was high for amount of food especially since it's family style.. If went to our regular place we would have had double the food and the $$$ would have been at least $50-$60 less... other than that it was ok

Have been here many times. We like the family style service. You get to sample a variety of menu items. Food and service is always good. The stuffed flounder special was excellent as was all the pasta's. It's worth the hour's drive to eat here. Don't forget to leave room for dessert.

Been coming here for years, haven't been back in a while and I don't think I will. Went very downhill . Food was pretty bad, service was awful. I don't believe the waiter spoke English, had to order everything twice but regardless, a very disappointing experience. Explained the emptiness in the restaurant. Won't be back.

Brought a friend to dinner who had never been to LaParma..As always, the food was superb and the attention of the wait-staff was professional to the max!! Being Italian, I grew up on this food and always feel as if I were at my own table when I dine here. For those who are thinking of dining here, take the plunge. You WILL be more than satisfied!!

Had the house chianti, which was bitter. House salad was good. Chicken Chinese off the bone was tender, but salty sauce. Spaghetti marinara was good, but nothing special. I've eaten here several times before and had better experiences than today. Maybe because it was a holiday it altered the quality. I'd give it another try. Service was very good, friendly staff...server, bus staff, valet, and hostess.

We stopped in for dinner in our way to the North Fork for the weekend. Lovely family crowd, attentive and authentic wait staff. Calamari arrabbiata. Bread, LaParma salad, chicken parmigiana all excellent, and I am speaking as a Dreiser traveler to Florence and Rome. Cheesecake was phenomenal, light and subtly sweet, all ricotta no cream cheese. Highly recommended and will return as often a possible!!!!
