Great Sicilian dishes! We went with the specials the night we went: baked Peconic Bay scallops in a lobster cream, stuffed squash blossoms, and lamb shank Osso Buco. Not a morsel was left on our plates!!

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 ..........

Always a delicious Italian meal at La Volpe. Charming interior-Italian farmhouse. We were an adult Italian family of 6 celebrating a special birthday. Our waiter could have been more attentive but everyone else was on point.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend,

La Volpe never disappoints - the service is always attentive, the food well-prepared. La Volpe is a happy restaurant with enormous portions of delicious food. The positives include most importantly - the food, and of course the service. The negatives are the sound level and the uncomfortable chairs. Overall, highly recommend.

Excellent Italian comfort food, better than expected, especially for a neighborhood place.

Nice wine selection, even by the glass was surprisingly good. Service professional, not annoying or overbearing. Will definitely return.

Only complaint was noise level - a bit high for my taste but not a deal breaker.

This is our favorite restaurant out east, including the hamptons. The owners (3 brothers from Sicily) are friendly and clearly efficient. There is a pizzeria menu (from their place adjacent) from which one can also order. The bread (small rolls) is baked there and always delivered warm. The wine list is extensive and impressive. Friends from Seattle were impressed that one of their local and very prestigious wineries was represented by several vintages. There are many choices at around $30 as well.
The place is nicely decorated too.

Great restaurant. If you like the almond encrusted sole at Star Bogs, try this one-it's better. The appetizer, carciofi scottati, is fabulous. We drive the extra 15 min. because it's ALL better.

The service was excellent at La Volpe. From the moment we arrived, our table was waiting, even on a busy Friday night. Waitress was top drawer and would have been in any top NYC restaurant. The food is rather heavy and there are various pasta dishes but almost all contain ham in some form. I was able to get a shrimp dish minus the pancetta but had to request. The atmosphere on this night was loud but very friendly and cheerful. Very close to me in Remsenburg so we were happy to find La Volpe!

This place is a cut above the usual and abundant Long Island Italian restaurants. The menu includes but also transcends the usual fare and always has great specials to offer. I had the braised, boneless, short ribs and they were absolutely lean, tender and delicious. The wine list is the best around. La Volpe always delivers a great dining experience.
