Villa Monte

Reviewed By Marlene P - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Needed a place easy to reach from our hotel and this restaurant came up in the search. It is tucked away in a plaza and the sign is a little difficult to spot. Very unsuspecting. Once inside you are met with the largest variety of cooked, ready to warm pizza slices that I have ever seen. Many unusual but mouth watering combinations available. Lots of locals eating here. We opted for table service and each ordered a pasta dish. Mine: red sauce, chicken, red peppers & spinach. Husband: EVOO, garlic, sausage and broccoli-rabi. Both delicious and generously portions. Took half of each home. The dining area can be a little loud but the food makes up for it. Went back the next day with family for pizza. Everyone had something different and all loved their choices.

I really don’t know where to start. I will start with the positives. The staff. The drinks. And let’s stop there with the positives. The negatives we ordered 3 apps and the grilled octopus was the best of the three and I don’t like grilled octopus but I was hungry and needed to eat something. I have had osso bucco at least 50 times in my life at 20 different places and I can say without a doubt that this was by far the worst I ever had. I am going to the next subject because I don’t want to think about the bucco anymore. One of the other dishes was chicken Milanese and they left 3/4 of the dish and did not take it home. If I had 50 bucco s I have had 200 creme brûlée and this was the absolute worst brûlée I have ever had I think it actually I know it was way over cooked and possibly there too long. I only eat that dessert and it was really bad. We went here from the reviews and comments and I really am thrown for a loop on how this place gets the reviews it gets and amazing enough have return customers. When we walked in on a Friday night at 630 and only 3 tables were full right then and there I got a little nervous and should have done a 180 and went somewhere else. I know everyone has different taste’s but I could not give this more than a 2. I would not return and never suggest to anyone.

Roast Sandwich House

Reviewed By EP1165 - New York City, New York

What the . . . ? Holy cow. Awesome! Was not expecting to find something this good in Melville, NY.

We had a Reuben, which was unbelievably good, a Philly-style cheesesteak, which was delicious, and a buffalo roast chicken sandwich, which was very good.

We will be back!

Totally worth the detour off 495.

New Chili & Curry Restaurant

Reviewed By LynneS_NY - Babylon, New York

We were fortunate enough to get there early enough last Friday night so we didn't have to wait. But beware, the line does get long waiting for a table because the restaurant is small and the food is that good. I'm not that familiar with all types of Indian food. I know what I like and that's what I usually get. So with my limited experiences with chicken biryani, samosas, and naan all was good. But everyone else loved their meals too. The soups, the spicy shrimp, and the buttery chicken dishes were enjoyed by all. This restaurant was recommended to me by an Indian coworker so we expected great food and were not disappointed. Go early and enjoy!

Blackstone Steakhouse

Reviewed By 720garys - Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

First time here and did not know what to expect. Well....... Lovely place, amazing food and great service. One of the best meals I ever had. The Manhattan salad was amazing...shrimp,bacon,green beans,onions and tomato's in a light vinegrette. Lobster tail was perfect as was the Filet Mignon. The cheese cake was delicious. Our server, a lovely short haired red headed gal was excellent. Can't wait to return.

Bagel Boss Hicksville

Reviewed By Connie P

Ordered egg sandwich on a whole wheat bagel...I was handed an omelet and a bagel in a brown bag, not sure when the stuff started going next to the bread on a sandwich. All of that is comical however the lame "sorry" and the missed attempt to then put the eggs on the bagel- was where you lost me. I had a long drive which is why I wanted sandwich. I don't text when I drive- probably wouldn't have a full breakfast on a plate while driving either. I didn't walk in to a pizzeria and ask for an egg sandwich...I went to Bagel Boss- come guys-really?

Cafe Testarossa

Reviewed By williamc640 - Woodbury, New York

A table for two please, one of our old favorites but been a while. Service excellent with a new set of servers, drinks made and presented well, menu specials explained intelligently and food served just as cocktails were finished. Food was excellent as was the evening.
