Attentive, professional service. An excellent menu and wine list as well as a never ending list of specials. Pricey, and worth it. The fegato was tender and delicious, a welcome and very rare item on most Italian menus, the baby artichoke appetizer was amazing . The only thing keeping me from rating it excellent was the tired decor, musty smell when you enter and overly dim lighting. La Ginestra boasts about being there 30 years. Congratulations, but it’s time for some redecorating

We were visiting Glen Cove mansion and looked for a restaurant nearby I saw the menu for La Ginestra had Chicken Scaapariello and it did not disappoint. It had grilled chicken, roasted red peppers potatoes and sausage and was delicious, Special of sausage ragu with homemade fusilli was very good. We also enjoined caprese salad with homemade mozzarella that was almost like burrata. Julie our waitress was attentive and friendly.

I have been coming here for almost 30 years. The food has been consistently great since the beginning. The fish is superb. The specials are great. I have never been disappointed. If you live anywhere close, don't miss this restaurant.
