The very best of Italian cuisine at affordable prices and served by experienced delightful waitstaff. This locally owned restaurant is the pride of Roslyn throughout the year. And, don't forget there's the North Shore's finest bakery, Diane's Bakery, its next door neighbor and owned by the same family. Go and enjoy the very best!!

Diane’s has solid American food. Nothing will blow you away but you will walk out satisfied and it will be in your restaurant rotation.

Beware of menu bait and switch. I checked price fix menu the day we were dining to make sure we all wanted to go there. But when we got there all seafood was removed as well as other dishes. Couldn't find things to order but we were there so we stayed. It took 90 minutes to get our entrees which finally came out lukewarm. Service was poor and unfriendly.

The menu online was completely different than the one in the restaurant. The waitress barely spoke English. When trying to pay with MasterCard, waitress says the restaurant does not take that brand. Had to call manager who then says the card didn’t go through. He tried again and it worked. The ice cream was 11 dollars and had no taste.

Service was great. Food excellent. Prices very high for the portions. We did not like being seated in the room upstairs with the wicker chairs which were extremely uncomfortable and the room was cold had no life and no kind of ambiance. We were disappointed to say the least.

I am so glad we gave this restaurant another shot- the food was delicious and the service was attentive- even though it was Valentines Day- of course then there are those amazing deserts . We didn’t have that same experience the last time— hopefully that was just an “off” night— we will be back!

Wonderful meal and excellent service, even though it was Valentine's day and the place was packed. Staff is particularly welcoming and accommodating, which follows, since Diane herself is as gracious a host as one could imagine. I'm afraid that recommending it so highly likely will make it even harder to get a reservation on that special night you need just the right setting for a near-perfect romantic dinner, but this is, indeed, that place.

This was my first visit here and I was very impressed. We went early at 6 and were taken upstairs where there are 2 small dining areas. The service was excellent with no rush from the staff. The food was very good.

We made reservations for restaurant week. There was nothing to indicate that it ended at 7:00. The only res they had was 8:30 which we took. We were told when we were seated that they were no longer serving for restaurant week very disappointing and deceptive. Had it been just my husband and I, we would have left.

First of all it was Restaurant Week and our 8:00 reservation did not qualify for the discount. I find it very disingenuous to place a cut off on the timing- if you are participating in Restaurant Week than do it sincerely.
Service is good. Wait staff is friendly.
My portebello mushroom appetizer was very good. The special of short ribs was tender but lacked very much taste albeit red wine. They failed to bring bread to our table until we asked after our appetizers were served. I don’t know that I would go back.

Should be told when making a reservation that seating is upstairs and that one needs to use a flashlight to read a menu.
The food was heavily salted-not a good thing.Michelle my waitress and the bus boys were wonderful!

We went during restaurant week to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday. I heard the food was good, but it was just average. Thru also forgot to put a candle on the cake. Glad I brought one. The staff was good but i was very disappointed with the food.

My husband and I are big fans of Dianes Bakery next door and decided to try their restaurant. The service and quality of food is as excellent as their Bakery. It is a great place for date night or any occasion for great conversation among two or more people .

Nice neighborhood restaurant great for dinner with friends. Upscale atmosphere. Noise level OK and better than many other crowded restaurants on Long Island. Service perfectly fine. Food was better than average and portion size was moderate but not outstanding so I give it a 4 star rating overall.

Great food. Meal paced properly. Service wasn't awesome but they tried. The waitresses have no personalities. The food is definitely better than service. We had a long table so larger parties who want round might do better elsewhere.

Eat at Diane's 1-2 a month and haven't been disappointed in the service, quality of food, of overall dining experience. Can be a bit hectic on weekends but during the week it is generally quiet. Like the Italian dishes but when I want something like comfort food their meat dishes are good (not like a steakhouse with massive portions but well prepared).
Side dishes could use some reworking; real french fries or onion rings would be welcome. Bread should be warmed.

Of course, excellent desserts as befitting a restaurant owned by a pastry chef with bakery next door. BUT WHEN WILL THERE BE A LAYER CAKE!!
