"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.

We probably visit the restaurant 3-4 times a month. Sitting at the bar for dinner is our favorite but we do occasionally get a table. The food is always exceptional and they always have specials so that you never get bored with the menu. The staff is very friendly and efficient.

Food is very tasty and portions are just the right amount.
Only issue is we always have to wait to be seated even with a reservation. It’s like their not aware they have them.
We keep
Coming back because the food is so good and it’s always busy!

We have eaten there many times, but were seriously disappointed this time. Despite having a reservation, our party of 6 was kept waiting in the bar for over 45 minutes. Food was good as usual and our waiter was superb. But I think that management could have done more to assuage our dissatisfaction. Dropping off a sampler plate of four small desserts at the end of the meal didn't really do the trick. We would have preferred if someone had stopped by the table to see if everything was ok and apologize for the wait once we were finally seated, as opposed to blaming it on someone "overbooking" the table, and the previous guests "hanging out at the table" long after their check was delivered. We love you La Volpe, and expected more from you.

The food is very good at La Volpe and the service was great too. I do find the prices high and the bill adds up fast. My family of five had 1 appetizer for the table, five meals, and 3 desserts (no drinks) and we spent about $200 plus tip. That’s a lot for one meal... but it was a birthday celebration.

This was the second time I've been here. It was for anniversary date with my girlfriend (had our first date here). Good, authentic Italian food. The almond-crusted flounder I had was excellent. Service was quick despite restaurant being fairly busy. Staff was friendly. There is also a pizza place attached at back of building for quick casual eats.

We are frequent customers of this restaurant but this last visit was disappointing. The food was not cooked the way we asked and they forgot to omit something. Also never asked if we wanted side of pasta. Left very hungry.

Excellent Almond crusted flounder, and Chicken w prosciutto/provolone. Penne with vodka and meat sauce very good but pasta slightly overcooked. Broccoli Rob and baby bok choy with cannellini beans needed more garlic lacking flavor this time but usually very good (will not order again). I usually go there for dinner and everything is always excellent but maybe lunchtime is a different experience. Will try again for dinner next time.

Coming from an Italian family, I rate this restaurant as one of the best on Long Island. The food is excellent, is well presented, and the service is exemplary. The servers in this restaurant know their job, know how to talk to people, and have a tremendous knowledge of what's on the menu. And I must add, they are dressed appropriately!

As always food and service very good. This the only restaurant in the Moriches-Mastic-Shirley area to dine, not just eat out. Great for special occasions, family occasions, and Holiday catering. The brothers are friendly and are quick to recognize you when you've been there a few times. Try it, you'll love it.

Disappointed because my entree was not prepared the way I ordered it ... twice.
When I ordered my pasta I was very clear as to how I wanted the dish to be prepared. When the entree was placed in front of me it was not the way I ordered it so I sent it back to be re-done. And now the second go around ... again, for the second time the entree was not prepared the way I ordered it.
I have had a few meals there before that were very good, so I am going to give them 3 stars instead of 1 this time.
When a customer orders an entree with clear with instructions ..........
