"La vera cucina Italiana!" (The real Italian cuisine!) La Volpe Ristorante has that true, family touch and meticulous attention to detail that is not found in corporate restaurants. Located on eastern Long Island in Center Moriches, La Volpe is a year-round destination for a fantastic culinary adventure that is a perfect balance of quality and value.

Executive Chef Franco Volpe and his mother Maria Teresa carefully compiled a Mediterranean-inspired menu that combines Franco's creative contemporary style and Maria Teresa's traditional family recipes. The eclectic menu is filled with fresh seafood, all-natural steaks and chicken, hearty pastas, home-style soups and light, tasty salads. La Volpe Ristorante also boasts an unparalleled award winning wine list with something for everyone.

Not to be outdone, Anton Pizzeria, next door, serves the finest wood-burning brick oven pizza and specialty pies outside of Italy, plus world class catering.

Excellent service, from when we walked in. Everyone had a smile on their face. We were attended to right away, our waitress was super friendly. We enjoyed our appetizers and our meals. We highly recommend La Volpe. We are never disappointed when we come, you can always count on excellent food with superb service.

We had a terrific meal last night. The only issue was with our server who was ok, but she looked upset the entire evening. We asked for someone to light the heater and they did after a little while. The food was amazing as always

Food was just okay - a bit under seasoned and the shrimp in my pasta was overcooked, tough, and chewy

This is one of those neighborhood finds, that is always worth going back to, although be prepared for it to take a bit longer than you might expect, but it is worth it, for what I believe was fresh pasta in the beautifully prepared linguine al nero di seppia with clams and jumbo shrimp. Yes, the wait is longer than you might think should be but use the time to enjoy your guests, and a nice bottle of wine, and consider it a lovely evening, especially if you are out on their colonnade/patio. .

A spur of the moment decision to go to this local restaurant resulted in a delicious dinner in a nice quiet atmosphere. The decor is amazing; you feel as though you are in Italy itself! The eggplant parm appetizer was delicious as was my entree, Pasta Alla Norma (rigatoni with eggplant pieces). My husband had the pan-fried artichoke hearts for an appetizer, and had a special with tuna in it. Maria was our attentive server. Can't wait to visit this great restaurant again!

One of our favorite restaurants even though the noise level is a little too energetic!
The Green Fig appetizer was amazing!
The only thing missing was some herbs in the olive oil for bread dipping. Plain olive oil doesn’t quite make it.

The reservation was made in advance through Open Table. When our party of 3 arrived at the restaurant on a Wednesday evening at 6:15 p.m. the restaurant was quite empty. The hostess showed us to our table - a table for 2! What was she thinking? After advising her that the table was unacceptable she proceeded to show us to a table for 4. My party did not allow this poor table choice by the hostess set the tone for the rest off the meal. The rest of the dining experience was superb.
