This fine Italian Restaurant has an unbelievable menu with superior specials each day. I prefer to go here for lunch as it is convenient for business lunches and it impresses.

We dined here last night and maybe it was because there were six gentleman at the table enjoying each other's company combined with amazing hospitality from Carmine and his exquisitely trained staff or it could be that our food was prepared like the old ways but this place earned 5 stars from me and I hardly ever give 5 stars...

Nice ambiance, highly professional staff, and consistently prepared high quality Italian food. The owner Vincent, and his son Carmine are icons in the New York Italian dining scene.

Place is very old and has dirty carpets and ceilings. Wonder about the kitchen. The mixed green salad was good. Seafood salad horrible looks nice but horrible no taste at all maybe it's from a can from China. Fish was soft and mushy as if it was frozen for six months and the Linguini came swimming in oil just horrible.

The waiter was not frazzled by a large table The food was very very good. There are so many Italian restaurants on Long Island that serve great food, but, I think Sempre Vivolo is... More
