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.

Food was very good and nicely presented. However, it was very loud and they seem understaffed even for a Thursday night. Took about 40 minutes to get our entree after ordering.

I really wanted to love this place. My first time here, the ambiance was quaint, it was pretty lo and they seated us close to others even though there were plenty of empty tables. I think there was only 1 waitress working so maybe that was why. We ordered a bottle of merlot, the waitress brought over a bottle of cabernet franc, when I pointed it out to her she made up some crazy excuse that it was the same, I then pointed it out to her on the wine list, clearly they are 2 different things. She then told us they were all out of merlot (across the board). Huh? Onto the food, we ordered the short rib dumplings, they were too sweet IMO. The beet salad was underdressed, I had the bronzino which was served to me skin side up, (I’ve never had filet served with the skin on), the portion was miniscule. My friend had a chicken Vesuvio special, it was tasty, but also on the small side. We had a slice of cheesecake & a cappuccino. The bill was $165 plus tip. It was very expensive for what we had, I was a little surprised. Also, I need to mention it took over 1hr 30min. from when we sat down to when we were served our entrees. I try to be understanding with the economy the way it is, however, if restaurants continue to overcharge and underserve, people will just eat at home.

Consistently outstanding!! Never a let down. Friendly staff, excellent food and always always great specials!!! The Bronzino is one of my wife’s favorites. I usually opt for the pounded pork chop or veal. Something for everyone on the menu and very reasonably priced.

Great ambiance. Our waiter was meh but that’s ok. I was really disappointed in the meal though. The eggplant meatballs were mushy and plain and the razor clams oregonata were very chewy. Could just be me but i had much higher expectations going into the meal.

Unfortunately the kitchen was experiencing problems & we were unable to order any pizzas or bruschetta. We had a 7:30pm reservation on a Friday night so it seemed early for them to have run out of options so early.

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:(
