Trattoria Diane Ratings and Reviews
For a New Years Eve dinner this experience was very disappointing. The restaurant had zero decorations for the holiday. No effort for a special menu. If we did not know it was New Year’s Eve, then the ambiance of Tratoria Dianne was boring. Frankly having eaten there several times previously, the place is very “tired”. The menu quite boring. The quality of the food was good but we felt it was overpriced for what they give you.
Considering a bakery is part of the restaurant, almost every desert had ice cream a component. Uninspiring.
Overall, not worth the price and verydisapointing
Made a specific and NECESSARY seating request when making the reservation. Restaurant called day before (too late to make other plans for New Year's Eve) and told me they could not honor the request. There are many corner tables and it was necessary as my dad has difficulty hearing with background noises. Reservation made way in advance and they were very wrong in not accommodating request. Put a real bad taste before even arriving.
Okay, now on to the actual meal. Trattoria Diane has a lovely menu and many excellent choices for dinner at a reasonable New Year's Eve price as they do not inflate their normal menu.
Service was acceptable, but not overly friendly. He seemed to really want to be somewhere else.
A delicious New Year's Eve dinner, offering their regular menu with some wonderful specials, such as goat cheese stuffed zucchini flowers appetizer. We also had the grilled portobello salad, the tuna and the salmon. We enjoyed them all as well as the prompt service with a smile. As always the desserts were special and the coffee was fresh and hot. A delightful way to end the year and usher in the new year.
Diane's is always great. Whether it's just the two of us dining or a party of 20 (for my wife's birthday), you can't go wrong. Their menu has something for everyone and their wine list is the best. Service is attentive and friendly. The desserts are great too - as they're affiliated with Diane's Bakery next door.
It's elegantly simple in decor. I shouldn't be embarrassed to grab dinner with the Queen of England here! There's enough variety to please most, even a vegan perhaps. I have not eaten everything but I've heard, and much of it is very good and a couple are just ok! It could use a little change each year , but I don't eat there a lot, so it doesn't matter for me!
As part of my daily work commute I have driven past Dianes more times than I count. So with our wedding anniversary coming, and not wanting to drive far on a cold night, we gave Dianes a try. It was a quiet night and we were seated promptly in the nearly empty, somewhat chilly, lower dining area. We were attended to quickly and promptly served a bread basket and well poured cocktails. Service was professional and pleasant throughout the meal. Unfortunately the food was somewhat disappointing; and for want of a better term.....boring. My wife's pork chop was thick and juicy, but the accompanying sweet potato, pineapple salad was nothing special and served much too cold. The Tuscan Pot Roast I had was just OK, with good mashed potatoes and vegetables as a side. In the end we had a good time, cocktails and a bottle of wine probably didn't hurt the mood; liked both the staff and the dining area but probably won't be back.
The prize fixe dinner menu on Sunday offers many interesting options. There were a variety of choices in each category. All were very well prepared. We were a bit disappointed that the restaurant was not at all festive during this holiday season. No attempt at all to decorate, although we could see lighted trees outside from our table. The waiter, although efficient enough, left his personality at home.
Food was excellent. Pot roast was so tasty and could be cut with a fork. The veal chop Milanese special was cooked to perfection, with a taste to match. Service was friendly and very efficient. All this coupled with an outstanding menu and leaves my wife and I Looking forward to our next visit!
I love Diane's and we eat here often. The food is usually very good, you can get a table for 6-8 no problem and you can actually have a conversation without yelling. But we just went last Sunday and I will never go on that night again. It was crowded (I guess because they offer a price fixed menu, which I forgot), the service was extremely inattentive and they were out of several items on the menu. Also the food just wasn't as well prepared as it normally is. Very disappointing.
I took my 93-year-old aunt to Trattoria Diane in Roslyn to take advantage of their Sunday Super price fixe. It was a disappointing experience. I had been very specific on my Open Table reservation that I was arriving with a companion who used a walker and that we needed a table with no stairs and one that was easily accessible. When we arrived, they seemed surprised when they saw the walker and made us sit at a small table that required walking through the dining room (disturbing other diners who had to move out of the way of the walker) rather than a larger, more accessible table because it had been promised to a couple at the bar. There were also tables that were completely accessible from the entrance but they had not been put aside for us.
Then we dealt with the waiter who seemed quite put off that my aunt, who wears visible hearing aids, was having trouble hearing him in the noisy dining room. Throughout the evening, he seemed very annoyed with having to serve us and we had incredibly slow service. A couple who were seated after us was long gone from dinner and replaced by another couple before we even got our dessert--which I had to request from another server after waiting 20 minutes while our waiter served other tables. Our 3 course meal took almost 2 1/2 hours.
The food wasn't terrible but just OK. We both ordered the roast duck and it was on the dry side, having obviously been cooked well in advance and kept warm. Dinner was $32 for 3 courses but with drinks, tax and tip it came to over $100.
Leaving I said something to the hostess about our table and she said I should have informed them about my aunt. I told her I had been very specific in my Open Tablereservation and she shrugged and said "Oh, I'm sorry."
This is not a place to take someone with a handicap. They just don't know how to accommodate without making the person feel embarrassed when 5 people had to move from their seats so that she could exit with her walker. We will not be back.
I saw Diane's as I was driving by one day, and the look of the restaurant made me think that this was worth trying. We went with another couple and had a great experience. The drinks were mixed very well, the service was incredibly attentive, and the food was excellent. Would definitely go back again.
I have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The waitstaff is very professional and the restaurant always feels very warm and inviting.

Food was horrible. Was there for restaurant week. Everyone arround me was picking at the food. Everything was dry and over cooked. The appetizer of fried seafood with vegetables was small overdone shards of food fragments.. The pasta with clams was not Sauced and a few clams that were like rubber bands! I will never be back. Wait server was uninterested when he asked how everything was and we said disappointing. When I saw other diners mumble how dry everything was, I should have left!
I was not very impressed with our meal at Trattoria Diane. We were there for Long Island Restaurant Week. The upscale atmosphere was not matched by the food. My mom and I got the duck, which was flavorless. My grandma's lamb was a bit better, but still not fantastic. The desserts, which we were excited for because the bakery associated with the restaurant is well-known, were mediocre at best. We got the three berry pie, angel food cake, and apple tart. Of the three, the angel food cake was the best, but really could have used a sauce. Meanwhile, the other two were surrounded by unnecessary sauce. The ice cream that came with each pie (which comes as a separate dessert as well) had a strange aftertaste. The best thing we ate was the endive salad as an appetizer.
The food was great. But that was about all that impressed me on this visit. We had a reservation and they still made us wait 20 minutes before seating us. Then it wasn’t until about an hour after we were seated that we got our main dish. They blamed it on Long Island Restaurant Week that that ended 2 hours earlier. No, thanks. I will not be returning anytime soon.
We've been to this restaurant in the past . We have friends that normally couldn't afford to dine here. They were happy it was restaurant week on Long Island. We arrived at 7:10 for our 7:30 reservation. When our waitress came to our table at 7:20 she told us we have to order off the regular menu as they stop taking restaurant week orders at 6:50 on Saturday Night. We asked for the Manager who came over and confirmed that. I was embarrassed and offered to pay the additional charges for our friends . Our friends would not accept that & put their jackets on and wanted to leave. It was getting late and my Wife actually had to plead with him to allow the menu we came for. He finally relented. Perhaps it was my error as I didn't see that notation on your confirm. We like the restaurant , however the decision on the "exception" should not have been an arduous process .
We went this restaurant for "Long Island Restaurant week" and, we found that, their Restaurant week menu was : only few Salad for first course option, the 2nd course(main course) of chicken perm with pasta had a tasteless tomato sauce which, taste like a just open up the can of tomatoes and heat it up. Also, the brick pressed chicken was burned and black with charcoal on top the chicken that dried out the chicken skin instead of crispy/tasty.
We had disappointment at this time.
Took advantage of restaurant week and Diane’s never disappoints. Nice selection and generous portions that go down easily. Full compliment of dessert choices - the plum/almond tart delicious and the berry pie as always great. We had the duck and salmon both well prepared, and my favorite roasted beet salad We always enjoy our meal at Diane’s. The staff very attentive and for a very busy evening we did not feel rushed.
