Food and service were fantastic. Have been there numerous times and we always enjoy our dinner there. It can be loud so it’s best going in a group rather than a date night.

Asked waiter for recommendation of best seafood plate - he pointed out the most expensive item on the menu (Naples Seafood Pasta). I went with it and was underwhelmed. Dish has very very little seafood, a few of the clams weren’t opened and needed to be discarded and it was expensive. My wife had a pasta dish and it was good.

This is definitely my favorite Italian restaurant in the area that I live. We started off with the Fried Calamari appetizer which was delicious and was surprised to be given some meatball appetizer on the house which also was delicious. I tried the Baby clams & shrimp with the Risotto this time, changing from my favorite Bronx tale veal and was extremely happy with this choice as I usually order the same dish most of the time but wanted to try something different. My significant other had the Lasagne as always and was very happy with her choice.

The food was excellent, the hostess was friendly. Just waited too long between each course. With a party of three, we spent two and half hour there which was not expected. Towards the end, the scope of ice cream did not come for over 30mins. But having the corner booth made the wait seemed shorter.

Lovely restaurant with plenty of old world charm. The owner/manager?? Is quite charming and the hostess is very sweet and attentive. The waitress was a bit of an air head constantly apologizing for everything including bringing the menus. The rice balls and chopped house salad were delicious! My balsamic chicken was wonderful not overly tart. The burnt broccoli was way to oily and not burnt enough and my boyfriend's stack of veal Milanese was just 'ok". I would certainly give it another try though!!!

I have been to the restaurant several times the food and the service have always been excellent this last time our service was noot good the table sat at did not have bread plates for everyone when appetizers came they did not give us plates so we had to use our napkins or our bread plate when our dinner came only 4 of us got our food seems they forgot to put in the 5 order then was told they would give us a half of glass of wine to person whosevorder they forget not even a full glass but that person was not even drinking wine. Had to ask several times to get a cherry coke for one of the guess. The food as always was delicious

Sat in a booth near front door which was loud. Service was timely but forgot to bring a side order. Upset that purchase of alcohol at the bar was nearly 25% more than the same items ordered at the table.
Good food was had by all from apps to main course

When I first started dining here it was amazing. Today's meal was good but not the same as before. The host said we could sit wherever we wanted no menus were brought over. Buratta salad was good so was fried calamari. My gluten free pasta Napolitano was good but not the same. Same with the spumoni. My partners snapper was good. I just expected consistent excellent service from this place. They fell short.

This was our third or fourth time eating there but the first time we brought guests. There were several things that could be improved. We ordered the baked clams and they were pretty disappointing in size and taste. Three members of our party had lasagna and it was rather cold. No one wanted to make a fuss and return it to be heated (it was offered). We will definitely come back because we know that overall it's a good place for dinner. I don't think our guests will though.

So here I am again 10 days later out for dinner with my family celebrating my daughters 13 Birthday. Our server Katelyn was super nice and super fast. Appetizers came out in a matter of minutes and no sooner did we finish, our main courses arrive. And I have said before the food is always top notch. Danny the Manager stopped by our table to say hi and wish my daughter Happy Birthday. Nice guy . Another reason I like going there is the friendly people.

Simply put. The food was very good but the service was very slow. It took forever for a waiter to come over. Even more home to bring drinks and a salad and forever tk bring our entree. We had 7:30 reservations sat in around 10 mins but didn't get served until almost 9 pm. There was a large menu of items to choose from and our entrees were great

The waitress screwed up a meal and when told about the mistake she became very confrontational and actually accused us of being aggressive, confrontational and physical. This is how she handled being shown she was in the wrong. Actually scary how she accused us of these actions when we were very normal in our tone and actions.

Fourth time and...meh. We like the sister restaurant Fanatico much better. This one is not as consistent with regards to food or service. Pretty restaurant but at each visit we are less than satisfied.

We were looking for a restaurant close to NYCB Westbury Theatre (Westbury Music Fair). I found Passione della Cucina on Open Table and, after browsing the menu, made a reservation. The hostess could not have been nicer and when the owner (I think he was) found out it was our first time at the restaurant, sat us outside in a courtyard/patio under a tent. It was a beautiful night, we were there early and it was great. My husband and I shared an outstanding caprese salad (the mozzarella was amazing). We are-non meat eaters so he had eggplant parm and I had a completely vegetarian dish with spaghetti squash as the main component. Both delicious. The menu is quite extensive and would appeal to all. I have already recommended this restaurant to a friend and, if in the area myself, would definitely go back.
