Trattoria DiMeo is a fun downtown trattoria with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Born in Naples, Italy Salvatore DiMeo has continued on the family tradition of cooking traditional neopolitan fare of the highest quality at moderate prices. Originating in 1969, Trattoria DiMeo has been serving the Roslyn area for 45 years! <br /> From our Zagat Review "Best Red Sauce East of the City" <br /> We look forward to serving you many more meals Buon Appetit!

While honoring the great traditions that La Coquille was built on, we are in the midst of taking things to another level!<br /><br />Now, and moving forward, our guests will enjoy two great concepts. On one side, we are dishing up a provocative selection of modern European cuisine… On the other, a bar and lounge… serving an eclectic mix of Tapas, and the finest cocktails anywhere.<br /><br />Combined, we offer something for everyone. Whether it’s a stylish dinner for two, or a casual gathering of friends… we know what you like!<br />

Active and bustling, in the "Trattoria Style", this Woodbury location of Butera's offers quality food at a great value. Known for their generous portions of pasta entrees, grilled fare, and fresh fish, Butera's has established a fine reputation as a neighborhood place where guests often see people they know. <br><br> It is owned and operated by Martin Butera, his wife Laurie, Martin's brother Gary Butera, and partner and chef Nick Zografos. The large open room is tastefully decorated with a traditional and contemporary mix, with rich dark woodwork and stone treatments, granite table tops, a wood and granite bar, fieldstone and hardwood floors, stone fireplace, exposed wine racks and a Tiffany style fixture at the entrance. Fresh flowers complete the handsome decor. <br><br> In addition to their extensive menu you can select from the creative specials like Grilled Filet of Halibut with Prince Edward Island Mussels on a citrus rosemary butternut squash risotto.

We’ve turned a modern lens on traditional Italian cooking. North Italia is our love letter to Italy—a place that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped off a charming side street to discover a culinary gem. After a decade in business, we’ve learned a thing or two and we’re approaching perfection in the art of handmade pasta and pizza. Every day, we start from scratch to create dishes like Strozzapreti with Bloomsdale spinach or supple ribbons of tagliatelle for our Bolognese. Our pizza is a revelation: an airy, barely chewy center embraced by a perfectly crisp crust. With the spirit of the Italian taverna, North is the place to talk shop over a cocktail or swap gossip sharing delectable chef creations. Every neighborhood would be lucky to have a place like North.

Dafni Taverna, conveniently located in the heart of Times Square and the theatre district, provides a dining experience reminiscent of a small village in Greece. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, from the beamed ceiling to the wood plank floor, from the exposed brick wall to the soft Greek music playing in the background. Guests enjoy the hospitality and fine home cooking that the country is famous for. The restaurant serves authentic Greek cuisine, prepared simply and deliciously, using only the freshest and purest ingredients. The menu starts with a large selection of hot and cold meze, and an array of classic salads, as well as a few innovations. Entrees include many of the traditional dishes, a selection of charcoal-grilled meats and fish, and a few intriguing additions, such as grilled quail on a bed of spinach, and braised lamb shank with hilopites (a type of pasta). Delicious, homemade baklava, galaktoboureko and rice pudding are prepared fresh daily in our kitchen.

Modern Italian Cuisine with all the Character of Artisanal Fare. Even though Italian Cuisine is based on Tradition, Cafe Testarossa is holding true to traditional methods, without restriction, to modernizing the essence of the menu.
