we have dined at la volpe previously and were very pleased. once again, everything was very good!! we came in at an odd time (for a late lunch), therefore we kind of had the place to ourselves! our waiter was extremely pleasant and attentive!! the carciofi scottati was soooo delicious! i have had it here before and couldn't wait to indulge again !! the baked ravioli were the perfect texture and very flavorful, as was the cavatelli bolognese. we'll be back and i know i will definitely have the carciofi scottati again!! thank you!

La Volpe was one of the best Italian restaurants we've been to on the East End of Long Island. The food was excellent (we had the Saltimbocca and the Lobster Ravioli) and the ambiance was lovely. The service was fine as well. The prices are on the high side, but in line with prices at any fine restaurant in that area which is adjacent to the Hamptons. We will definitely return to this restaurant!

We went on a Saturday night with another couple who had recommended LaVolpe. They thoroughly enjoyed their meals, as did my husband, but mine was just okay. Hubby said the veal parm was tender and the sauce was good. Friends said the Salmon and Chicken was good. Unfortunately my shrimp was overcooked and the sauce was blah. The pappardelle pasta was cooked well. The appetizer portions were very small, definitely not meant to share. The salad was good. Will try again since the others enjoyed their meals, but for me it was nothing special.

We have dined at La Volpe Ristorante several times over the past few years. The quality of the service has never waivered, the staff is attentive and friendly. The food is excellent. The dinner menu has many staples that have been there from year to year, but a varied selection of special dishes always make the choice of what to order very hard.

For quality service and excellent food you should visit La Volpe Ristorante.

The food was awesome. We had the artichokes appetizer and they were great. We each had a pasta and go for the home made they will substitute, I had the bucatini and the dish was to die for. Creme brûlée for dessert was fantastic. We sat outside but all we saw was traffic but it was still nice to sit outside.

LAVOLPE is our favorite ristorante. Although we have been using their take out and have ordered trays of food for special occasions, we started going to the ristorante much more frequently since my grandsons 1st b'day party there a few years ago as it was delicious.
The food is really great and if you love seafood like I do, it is soooo fresh. The pasta dishes are delicious and I love their salads as they are also always fresh!
Great food, great wine and great service.
We love it!

The overall experience was ok, the ambiance is nice, the service is rather slow as it appears that the wait staff has far too many tables to accommodate all at once. The food was not that creative and very limited at that. Up-charges galore for the type of sauce on the pasta side dishes and the wine was way over priced and short poured. For the price point I expected a lot more and was rather disappointed.

La Volpe is our go to place to celebrate special occasions (because honestly it is too expensive to casually dine there often) but that is truly ok because just going from time to time makes it special. The food is fantastic, always comes to the table hot and the service is always great. Go here now!

The occasion was a friends get together ... we were 10 people for lunch. The lunch special is a 2 course meal for $16. Good choices on both appetizers and mains, all tasty, generous portions. Big favorite was the grilled artichoke starter. Entree veal and chicken Marsala very good, salmon cooked perfectly. House red wine excellent value. Service is friendly, helpful and efficient. Will definitely return. Have only tried dinner there once, while friends keep going back, so I'd be willing to recommend it anytime.

We have been to this restaurant about a dozen times and its a comfort to know the menu changes slightly with each visit. Food is always great and the specials tend to be seasonal. My one complaint is the noise level. There's a lot of hard surfaces and very little to absorb sound. once it's packed (which is usually) it can get loud. However, the food and wine easily overcome this. Check it out if your in the area.

What can I say that I haven't before?? Every time we go to this restaurant we are amazed at the quality and selection of the food. we always stop at the bar and have a couple of drinks before siting down to eat. My wife and I have never had a miserable meal here. If your looking for real authentic Sicilian food this is the place to go.

We have been to La Volpe's several times. The food and the service keeps calling us back.

The menu offers fine dining selections not found in very many Long Island restaurants.

As always the service is attentive and friendly. Our waiter Phillip made the evening more enjoyable. The night we were there the dining room was very crowded, with everyone enjoying themselves over a fine dinner the noise level was just a bit high. It really had no adverse effect on our experience, in fact it was nice to hear families chatting over a meal.
