San Remo Ristorante Italiano
I have been to San Remo's many many times but if the owner is now there, the place suffers. The service
was horrible, I had stated it was my anniversary, and we were stuffed at a table against the wall, while they
were empty, I thought that was sooo unnecessary. The food was just ok and the order was not right, the
waitress had an awful attitude. If it was my first time there is would have been my last. I would only go
back if the owner was there and if my husband insists, otherwise no way.
We went to celebrate birthdays. The food was wonderful and so was the staff. We totally enjoyed our evening.
We had a very nice time. The food was very good and the service was top notch. It was a little noisy because they had a party seated at the time but that can happen at any restaurant and I didn't let that dampen our enjoyment of the evening.
San Remo is one of our favorite dining choices on Long Island. We bring friends often and everyone makes plans to return. Every dish is prepared and plated with great attention to detail. A price fixed weekday menu includes a terrific variety. Chef Ralph values his clientele and checks on each course to make sure it is perfectly cooked and plated. And the wine list is terrific too!
Excellent food and service, nice atmosphere
For a Friday evening, it was sparse with only 3 other tables filled, which is why the not-so-prompt wait service was disappointing. That said, the food was outstanding and proportions were very good. Their crab cake, shrimp stuffed avocado, and grilled octopus were outstanding as was their osso bucco. Will definitely come back for the food. Though wish service improves and is more attentive.
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Portions were on the smaller side.
we attend weekly because it is the best Italian style food around. That we know everyone as friends and get amazing service just makes the experience special every time we eat there. I talk it up to anyone who will listen. Thank you for being in our lives.
Ralph and his team never fail to provide a great dining experience. The food was outstanding and the wine was too. Topped off with his Italian cheesecake, this meal was the perfect Father’s Day gift. Their family friendly environment is the icing on the cake.
This was good and I’m just tryIng to get to fifty characters
Initially they lost my reservation and made me wait 15 minutes until I was eventually sat at one of the tables that had been available the entire time I was standing.
After that, it was smooth sailing. I had the seafood salad which was fantastic and tasted super fresh. I followed this up with the filet of sole which was AMAZING.
All was great, except the service was a bit slow and I wish they wouldn't use the Diner type tabs for the butter. The restaurant is classier than that.
This was our first time at San Remo even though we live in RVC. All the reviews I read were true. Food was great as were the prices. We met the chef and owner who came from the kitchen frequently to greet guests. Highly recommend this!
Amazing birthday meal for husband with close fam and friends. Waitstaff is well trained and doesn’t rush, food expectations were high and were met. Ralph the owner comes by to see what if anything is needed. I love this place.
Enjoyed the meal very much. The waiter service could be better-didn't bring out both meals at the same time and when asked about it, was told that there had been a problem in kitchen (I think something dropped) but was never informed of this. Had to wait for other meal to be redone.
Never disappointing. Always welcomed back as an old friend
Seldom that we say: "Exceeded our expectations" but it really did and we were pleasantly surprised. Hosting and serving were warm and friendly, i.e., of people that want you to like them, the place and your experience. We felt very comfortable. For an "Italian American" cuisine, the food was very well prepared and darn tasty we had backed clams and Lobster Bisque for appetizers, stuffed Branzino and a Veal dish for main course and Italian cheesecake and Tiramiso for desert and we couldn't be happier with any of the dishes, Why? You have to try it for yourself. It is a very solid Italian American food experience. In the way out, the staff was gracious enough to thank us for our gratuity for a very pleasant evening.
E had a really good dinner and will be happy to return.
Average restaurant with exorbitant prices. Pasta dishes very expensive and charged $45 for a modest size serving of Dover Sole.
Hands down, had to be the best Italian meal my family and I had ever eaten outside of our own kitchen! Every thing we ordered from the salads to the dessert was beyond fantastic! I'm obsessed! We will be eating there from now on and recommending it to anyone looking for fabulous food!
We made last minute Easter reservations for a party of six, which included two foodies and one picky eater (has to fresh or will not touch it). The food was great and the staff very nice. The foodies were happy, no complaints from the picky eater and there was peace on Easter. We recommend the grilled octopus appetizer. Thanks very much for a great meal - we will be back.
Easter dinner. Food was very good. Wait staff a bit inexperienced.
Visit of my daughter and her family
Same great cooking but the service buy food runners and busboys has become unprofessional. Don’t know who gets what. Bussers pick up plates into my nose. Dirty knives. Only waitress and captain seemed competent.
Always a great meal
Very friendly & knowledgeable staff concerning the menu, excellent food, and no rush to leave your table when finished dining
It was refreshing to find a new place with excellent food, service and ambiance. The menu had a huge variety and, although we came on a busy Saturday evening, we were greeted and had our appetizers and entrees in a surprisingly punctual manner. The staff is absolutely wonderful. Every single person there was working hard. I could see them carefully attending large parties as well as clearing our plates and filling our glasses every time they passed. I regret not saving room for dessert as it looked incredible. After we got into our car to leave one of the waitresses ran out because my husband left something on the table. It wasn’t significant enough that we would have been upset if it got tossed, but it really reiterated to us both how much attention the staff here pays to their customers. I would go back every week :)
We eat here often, food is always good but this time there wasn't enough of waiters, long wait for plates to be picked up and the noise level was very high this time.
Great dining experience! You can imagine that you are in a delightful Italian hideaway on the Amalfi Coast or Sorrento! Every dish is special, the service is impeccable. Mangia!
The atmosphere for Valentines Day was nice, especially with the music and the staff was friendly. However the Valentine meal of Filet Mignon was disappointing. Not cooked to order, wanted medium rare and got well done and it was served as 2 pieces on my plate?! No one bothered to ask if we were satisfied with the meal. May be good for Italian meals, but for Filet Mignon would not recommend it
love this restaurant. Omar and Eddie are wonderful servers and really nice guys. The food is spectacular! Great place for fine Italian cuisine.
The food was delicious! The wait staff was extremely attentive and polite.
San Remo is a friendly, delightful restaurant with good food and attentive service.
The octopus appetizer was exceptional. I just wish they would be a little more creative with the butter for their bread. The prepackaged patties are more in line with a diner than with such a creative restaurant and chef.
Food was excellent and so was the service
Food was really tasty but the service was dismal. Very, very slow. We had to ask the hostess or another server for requests as we rarely saw our server.
Our waiter never came over once to ask how everything was or if we needed anything. We saw him 2 times, for our dinner and dessert orders. Also, when we asked him about how certain dishes were prepared, he wasn't so nice. Ralph, the owner, did come over to our table 2 times and we had to ask him to bring us a couple of things since our waiter never came around.
The food was very good. Everyone I was with was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Quality meal.
Our group had a wonderful time and loved the food
Always a great meal and the service is always excellent.
