A very good place on my short list of places when I visit family on LI in Nassau County.
Food is really good, servers attentive but a little detached on our recent visit. Nevertheless, all the entrees were excellent. Good pours for the cocktails.
Not a lot of character with respect to decor, but the food makes up for it.
Try Diane's bakery next door during the day. Awesome (but pricey) pies, tarts, cookies etc. They serve lunch as well.

I’ve been to this restaurant a few times and it never disappoints. Excellent service and the food is delicious. If you get there early, the price fixe menu is a great value. If I lived closer, I would come here more often.

This is the 2nd visit and the food was excellent across the board. Prepared as requested and the ingredients were all top notch. Nice wine by the glass selection. Attentive but reserved service. Paid attention when as required. Nice go to restaurant where you know what you are going to get. Always nice to have those standards available.

We always enjoy our dining experience at Diane’s. It was particularly nice since we had early reservations at 5:15 and sat downstairs by the window adjacent to their outdoor dining patio with natural light and a view. We had the dining room to ourselves for almost 1/2 hour. The food was delicious wonderful fresh Burrata with asparagus and tomato with pesto and olive oil. Grilled warm octopus over a fresh bed of greens The summer menu offered soft shell crabs with tomatoes delicious and my husband had the tuna perfectly cooked as ordered. For dessert we shared one of my favorites the three berry pie with vanilla ice cream. Will definitely go back and probably at the same time.

This was our second time at the restaurant. We were seated promptly. The wait staff was very attentive.
We sat upstairs which was very noisy and made it hard to have a conversation with our friends. Three of us had the Branzino and it was very tasty but the portions were a little small for the price charged. The fourth person had the Tuna and liked it very much.

Appetizer of zucchini blossoms with goat cheese overpowering goat cheese, ricotta would make better sense. Duck was over cooked and dry. Spaghetti Carbonara was awful, lacking creaminess and swimming in a sauce that broke. Desserts were the high point. Needs a new chef

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Food was very average. Service was horrible - the waiter was totally disinterested in us and got on of the appetizer orders wrong. Small, cozy restaurant with terrible acoustics. Loud.

Nice menu selection and wonderful to eat outside. Although there were other people eating outdoors, we felt like we were forgotten. The unfriendly maitre dee also served us and it became late so we bypassed coffee and tea.

Banzaino was excellent, duck was very good but not special. Salad appetizer was small and not interesting, should have been split i the kitchen since we were sharing.
Upstairs room was lovely and quiet.
Overall very good especially quiet room.

Diane’s almost always pleases us with great food, service, and pleasant atmosphere. Tonight it was excellent. We arrived for our reservation on time and were surprised to receive an email that our reservation was cancelled as we walked in. They seated us anyway and we had a delightful experience and a delicious dinner.

Always enjoy Dianes. Only complaint is they sorta forget about your table when you sit outside. Have to ask for drinks and the check.

Food was just ok. Cocktails were wrong/off. Upstairs decor was nothing special. Told them it was my friends 50th bday when I made the reservation and when I checked in- they did nothing. Not terrible but nothing special for $200/couple.

This has to be the most overrated restaurant on Long Island. The food is passable . Although I think part of mine was spoiled and I got sick after. Stick with the bakery only. The desserts are very good. The service has to be the worst ever. AWFUL . Other than horribly slow, they don’t know the first thing about service. And to top it off the bus person put the table’s pepper grinder ON TOP of my dirty plate on top of my food I’ve eaten. GROSS! That pepper shaker went right onto another table. I’ll NEVER be back. Ugh
