Been dining here well over 25 years. Food is always very good, never left this place hungry. Very busy at times so expect to wait. Staff is always friendly and prompt service is usually the case. Always find the food very fresh and seafood cooked properly. Getting hungry thinking about it. Give it a try.

Great disappointment. Probably, the worst tomato 🍅 sauce I have ever had. Any commercial jarred sauce would be better. I have never been asked what kind of sauce I would like on my pasta 🍝 in an Italian restaurant - mild, medium, or hot!!! The mild was overly sweet and inedible. I sent it back for the medium which was... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat, the food is authentically Italian and genuinely good. Portion sizes are exceptional. Even after moving out of state whenever we visit New York our first stop after we leave the airport is directly to Carle Place and Vincent's Restaurant. A must have is the shrimp parmigiana, the back ziti, you must... More

Great place everyone is nice,friendly and great food. We started with fried zucchini, nice and hot with a horseradish dip. The servings are really big...enough for two. Pasta with meatballs, broccoli robe in a thick butter sauce. Shrimp fried de ablo in a spicy sauce with pasta. Save room for dessert, rich and filling, the moose was my favorite, except... More

This restaurant is the real deal. Authentic New York style dining. Portions are disgustingly huge ! You have to share ! Best part is that they have jars of sauce for sale. You can mix and match different types and take home a gift bag. I go there everytime I'm in town for business.

My wife and I stopped in here for dinner before a concert, and we were blown away. The name implies seafood, but this place is much more. It's a great Italian restaurant with a tremendously varied menu. We've been there four times now, first just the two of us, and then with friends on the other visits, and none of... More

Clam appetizer was excellent. Had mamas Sunday dinner and all 3 meats were very good as was the meat sauce. My son and wife's had great calamari parmesan and shrimp park. Place was busy but staff was hustling and friendly.

Had a family meal ordered from them, good portions to feed a family of 4, even for teenagers, we had chicken parmasan, linguini alfredo, sautéed mix vegetable, all three were half tray sizes. Fresh ingredients, and for $37 for a meal for 4 people, it's a good deal and good chow.
