Italian
Uva Rossa means 'red grape' in Italian. This wine bar specializes in wine and small, shareable plates with a varied selection of cheeses, bruschettas and pizza. In addition to full portion dining and our daily blackboard specials. Italian born chef/owner Antonio Bove creates outstanding Northern and Southern Italian dishes with a twist! Featuring recipes from his childhood. Amongst the restaurant's favorites are his meatballs topped with a tasty parmigiano sauce and of course his infamous eggplants balls, which are delicious and perfect for vegetarians.

There is an extensive wine list and we are now proudly featuring the first wine on tap in Long Island.

The restaurant has an old world, rustic feel with lots of exposed brick, stucco and wrought iron, and a romantic flair with candles everywhere.

So join us at Uva Rossa for a most memorable dining experience - from our food to our service and friendly atmosphere.

My wife and I were having a Post Valentine’s Day dinner. We showed up a few minutes earlier than our reservation time but were seated right away. We enjoyed a very nice bottle of Pinot about that was recommended. We shared the fried calamari as an appetizer. It was fried perfectly and light. The sauce was very tasty and nice combination to the taste of the calamari. I had the skirt steak over a bed of arugula. It was cooked as I asked for it and very tasty. My wife ordered the lamb chops and really enjoyed it. I would come again and highly recommend it.

Uva Rossa never disappoints! From start to finish its a GREAT EVENING! The place is beautiful and very welcoming- we were greeted with big hugs from Amanda who manages this location. We had a great table and the place was quiet when we got there- 6:30pm
From start to finish dinner was SPOT ON! Nick our waiter was very helpful selected our appetizer-salad and entree- Never rushed- each course flowed- drinks were great...by the time we left at 9pm ( not rushed) the main dining room and bar were packed - with very happy people! If you haven't gone there RUN...the only disappointment was that I didn't get to see one of my favorite people CAROL who is one of the owners:(

One of my absolute favorites. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel welcome! In addition to the wonderful menu, there is always a full board of specials. The biggest problem is always deciding which to have. In addition they are incredibly accommodating in substitution requests. The staff is friendly and gracious and the food is outstanding! In addition, their prices are very reasonable! If that wasn’t enough, they also graciously accept and participate in the “foodie card”!! Highly Recommended!!!

The food was delicious! We’ve come back many times for their kale Caesar salad! This time my vegetarian sister had rigatoni with eggplant and devoured it! I had steak salad that was perfection!
The service was excellent.

We arrived with four people from a party of six And they would not seat us until the other couple arrived. I found this quite unnecessary and annoying. I made the reservation and was there on time. Why was I forced to stand and wait? The food was excellent and the table service great but because of the way my party was treated at the door, I will not be back.

Honestly I have become increasingly disappointed in UVA. It was once my favorite restaurant but the last few times I have been there I feel the prices have gotten out of control while the serving sizes have gotten smaller. I went there for my anniversary and indicated that in my open table reservation and there was no acknowledgement made at all. Nothing. Not even a happy anniversary wish. May be time to move on.

Pork Chops overcooked!
Waited for 25 minutes for a 7:30 reservation. Sorry, sit me at my reservation time.
The waiter was not that attentive.
If you are over 30 years old, you will not hear a thing...

My husband and I usually love this restaurant. This was our fifth visit but not our favorite. We love the lively atmosphere, however there was a table in the corner that was obnoxiously loud the entire duration of our visit. They were so loud that our server could not read the specials to us - we had to read them off the card. Not the restaurant’s fault but put a damper on our night. We enjoyed a fabulous bottle of wine. The service was on point as usual. We had the scungilli and found it to be lacking flavor and not enjoyable. We also had the fusilli puttanesca and it was very very good. The veal saltimboca was good, not great. My favorite part of the meal was dessert. The bomba was delicious. This is a neighborhood gem and we will return but this one time we were disappointed 😞

I’ve been several times and this visit was not up to par. The server was rushing us, the food was mediocre. I will be taking a break for a while. May have just been an off night but for the prices there, they should never have an off night.

Food and service EXCELLENT. That being said, it can feel a little rushed when the place starts to fill up. For example, we were asked to “place our full order at once if possible”.
The food was great... never had clams in garlic and GINGER! Delicious!
Can get VERY LOUD. Not the place for a quiet dinner. Great place for a party!
