II Falco looks to serve you with the most delicious and finest Italian cuisine in the area. Inspired by the original owners of II Mulino, Gino and Fernando Masci, Segundo and Bolivar acquired the love for the Italian kitchen. This has given them the experience in creating and mastering familiar pastas such as the wild porcini mushroom ravioli with black truffle cream sauce. From the sea we have branzino cooked in sea salt, as well as fresh seafood with angel hair. For meat lovers we have a choice of delicious veal chops to rack of lamb to PorterHouse Steak. We look forward to providing you with outstanding service and make you feel just like home.

Funnily enough, we never got seated for 30-45 mins and left. We had made a reservation for two for 10pm and when we went there there were people who had been waiting to be seated since 9pm. The hostess seemed to have too much on her plate. By 10 45 we were already starving and realized we weren’t going to be seated anytime soon since there had been people waiting way before us so we left.. ordered food from post mates and ate at home. I don’t understand why you would take a reservation if the tables are already booked?

The experience here has changed from when it first opened and what I had been used to. I have been coming here since they first arrived in LIC. If you have been here before you will know what you normally expect. I will describe what has changed. You no longer receive complimentary apps upon seating such as the zucchini with olive oil and chopped tomatoes with crisp bread. The service was less attentive and you no longer get the feel of being catered too. Nobody offered to help with wine selection. Portions where much smaller and in the past they would divide up the plates by how many diners there are. This time they put it all on the table and portions where smaller and not divided up. The specials they usually read aloud where far fewer. The bronzino that we normally get as a whole fish was fried as a filet and was not mentioned when ordered. Very little attention was paid to drinks being empty and new plates/utensils. No after meal drinks where offered as in the past. I know this review sounds harsh but I come here because of the experience it provided since inception. They took the game plan from Ilmulino and brought it to LIC for a more reasonable price but this time that game plan was gone and the price felt undeserving of what was received. It went from an exceptional experience to just a slightly above average neighborhood Italian spot. I am not sure what caused this change but I hope sincerely they figure it out and bring it back.

I went there for Valentine's day and had the worst servi e and worst food except for one dish. We asked the waiter to take a picture when thinds where quiet but he said he was too busy. That was first strike, second aas we where the second person to order and the last person served from all thst was there. Our ceaser salad was so over dressed it was almost soup. Second strike was when seaver was trying to searver the person next to me, he saw my scarf on the floor and he just kicked it out of the way instead of just telling me it fell. Strike three my spaghetti with meat sauce was so saucy it was almost soup like. My wife had chiken with sausage and that was good. Waiter told my wife to have a drink when he saw her angry at the slow service. I got there at 6pm and got our salad at 8pm, two hours is insane. I was three couples who sent there food back for something. Lousy place, i hated it.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city.

This is the first time we were disappointed. Perhaps it was due to being completely booked and occupied on New Years Eve without proper wait staff and the food, when it finally arrived at our table, was not the proper temperature.

We will certainly go again but want ownership to realize they missed on that night.

Went for Christmas dinner - could do better in decorating the place and make it more festive - it was a small room and pretty boring - our waiters were fantastic and attentive. Food considering it was Christmas Eve and they were very busy was very good and the portions were a good amount. This is our second time coming and enjoyed the meal for sure. I would highly recommend them to do a better job with the decoration - more people would come for Christmas and feel the spirit

Great food, and our service was simply the most charming and professional waiter ever. My only complaint is waiting time. Not sure if there was a problem in the kitchen that day, but waited a good 45 minutes for our entrees to arrive.

Unfortunately it's hard to look at this completely objectively because I remember when, till recently, Il Falco gave you free zucchini chips and bruschetta before your app. No longer. The conventional meal that's left remains outstanding. But that generosity is missed and the experience is less special because of it. It should be noted that the waiter service remains gracious and classy, even if there's less for them to show off with now.

We had a 7:30 pm reservation and didn’t get seated till 8:15. Several other customers were impatiently awaiting to be seated passed their reservation time.

It was clear the restaurant was very short staffed. Being in the customer service industry my heart went out to the staff. They were doing their very best to accommodate the customers and continued to smile and remain professional.

In spite of the hectic service the food was great and I’ll definitely give this restaurant another try.

The food and service was excellent we really enjoyed the dishes and shared with each other. The wine choices were very good. On reflection we should have asked the special dish prices before ordering. The background music was so low you did not realise it was on, it would be nice to have the volume up a little to add to the ambiance.
