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.

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.

Generally very pleased with the restaurant. Family dinner with 4 grown children. Service was very good and generally the food was excellent. The one item we were not overjoyed with was the veal chop. We had 3 veal dishes. The 2 others were very good and well worth the price. The veal chop itself , while not bad, was nothing to write home about. We shared a bunch of appys- which included clams, mussels, calamari, eggplant , and a salad- all delicious! Two in our party had the skinny chicken, 3 veal dishes and one pasta.other than not being wowed by the chop everything was delicious. Service was top notch. We will definitely be back!

This was our 2nd visit. Our family was visiting from out of town. We were 5 adults and a 2yr old. We started with drinks, appetizers & salad (family style). The entrees were more than enough to take home for the next day. More importantly, food was fresh & delicious. I highly recommend the "skinny" girl! Spaghetti squash with fresh steamed veggies & tomato (sauce) with grilled chicken or not. I enjoyed mine with fresh grated Parmesan!!! Our guests including our 2yr old ate everything! Oh don't forget to order the Dessert Sampler! A must return to...

PASSIONE CUCINA IN WESTBURY IS AWESOME AND HAS THE BEST PIZZA CHEF (JOHN).
HE MAKES THE "VIP MARGHERITA (NO BORDERS)" PERFECTLY TASTY AND CRISPY. HE HAS BEEN MAKING PIZZA FOR 30 YEARS. ALSO DAN IS A WONDERFUL OWNER AND MANAGER THAT ALWAYS STAYS AVAILABLE TO ALL GUESTS.

We've been here a few time before and had a better experience then. We want to eat outside on the patio. They had music that would have been nice IF it wasn't SO VERY LOUD. We had reservations for 3 attempted to sit outside then move inside. The didn't have any small table for us. I was good with a larger table but evidently the Manager wasn't, as I over heard his comment to the. Try nice hostess that was just trying to accommodate us. The Waiter was nice but service was slow. We asked him to take a picture of ourselves. He did but low and behold I found a selfie of himself in my photos later that night. Not amusing! The portions seem to have shrunk since we last went there. We're gonna give them another try in the near future. Hopefully it's better.

The first time I went to this restaurant, everything was great. My second visit, not so much. One entree was cold when it was served, and the other one (which was veal) was very tough. I would be willing to give the restaurant one more try and hope that my recent visit was just an off night.

We returned the dish and had something else in return. Both dishes were good, not exceptional,. I would definitely go back and give a second try.
