Italians love to eat and know good Italian food. Everyone I know loves to eat Italian. We all know that in Italian culture, food is very important. The food is very filling - lots of cheese and sauce and it has to taste delicious! My favorite entree is lasagna and the sauce has to be perfect.

So what are the qualities that make Italian food taste so good?

  • Fresh herbs and vegetables
  • The right seasonal ingredients
  • A cook that incorporates their own taste into the food

And to make a restaurant really great, there should be an excellent wine list, fresh, tasty bread for the table and a feel of Italy in the decor and ambiance. If you are going out to dinner, the lights can be dimmed a little. There could be soft Italian music in the background. The servers should be professional and should give you a rundown of that night’s specials. An Italian restaurant can also get by without all these qualities if they have excellent food, but the best Italian restaurants have everything right.

You can find the best Italian restaurants in Long Island here. We also have excellent pizzerias with dining, such as Sergio's Restaurant & Pizzeria, a favorite in Old Brookville and the local area. My favorite entree when eating Italian is lasagna and the sauce has to be perfect.


Everybody loves a good steakhouse. And the steaks and beef must have the right texture and flavor. The sirloin and fillet mignon must be lean and tender with the right amount of fat to release the juices. When you are in the mood for a steak, you expect a quality cut at the restaurant you choose. Not too salty, not too dry. There are may variations of the way steak is cooked and sometimes it takes trying out a few restaurants until you find one that you really love.

Keep in mind that most good steakhouses require reservations on the weekend. A good one will have excellent service and fresh bread for the table. The server must be knowledgeable and patient and be familiar with the wine list. And there must be delectable dessert choices for after dinner. Your steak must be made to order, whether that's medium rare or well done and must have excellent flavoring. Read the recommendations for New York Steakhouses on Long Island.


Why not enjoy some live music while you are out to dinner? Restaurants with live bands can be found here.


Everybody enjoys a restaurant with beautiful views of the water. Whether you are a local or visiting from far away, it would be a shame not to enjoy the experience of the unique Long Island seaside restaurants on the north or south shore. We have the best Long Island restaurants with beautiful views of the Long Island Sound and the Great South Bay.


Many families that are on a budget look for kids eat free restaurants. In today's economy, families have many choices of kid friendly restaurants.

Everybody loves the sit down family oriented chain restaurants like:

  • Applebees
  • Ruby Tuesday
  • Chilis
  • Fridays
  • Outback
  • Dennys
  • Red Lobster
  • Chipotles Mexican Grill
  • Dave N' Busters

But sometimes you want something a little different, like authentic Asian, Caribbean, Mexican, Indian or Seafood restaurants.
