Food, service and atmosphere was excellent. I go here quite often, had the lamb, fish pasta.
food and service always met my expectations. I have recommended a lot of family and friend to this restaurant. I will surely go again to try their other dishes.

Nice restaurant. Even though it was a bit pricey, it was worth it, due to the fact we celebrated my dad and nephew’s birthdays. My wife usually brings a huge doggy bag home, but she really enjoyed her meal because the duck was very tender! Next time I go there, it will be during restaurant week. Ha ha!

I had the pasta special which included seafood. Most of it was good. However the calamari was over cooked and was like chewing rubber bands. That was a large part of the plate.

It's not the greatest interior, but then we were not there for decorating. The food is fresh and tasty. It's a great place to go to locally and walk out full and happy .

The food was good, but such poor service, we would not return. We waited approximately 20 minutes before anyone came over to take a drink order. One person asked 2 different wait staff for a second drink, he never received it. No one came over during the meal to see if we needed anything . Then when we wanted the check we waited too long for that and was tempted to get up and walk to the front desk. There are too many good restaurants on Long Island to deal with bad service.

While the food quality is good, not excellent by a long shot, be wary of ordering a nightly special, as the prices of these items are not in proportion to regular menu prices. Also be aware that the noise level can be extremely loud, especially on weekends when the dinner room is full.

Food was very good. Service was good but inconsistent as I had to ask them to light our table candle after I saw that they had lit other tables’ candles. Takeaway bag was a generic plastic supermarket bag, yet another couple received a very nice black, Il Luongo bag with handle holes. Interior and exterior ambience was nice yet their windows were dirty and it took away from the look.

Il Luogo is my kids and my favorite restaurant! We love the good from the bread they give you at the table, to the appetizers, main courses and of course desserts! The staff is wonderful and so pleasant and attentive. They remember us when we go and we have taken friends to experience the great time we have there.

This was my first visit and I will not be going back. I feel that the staff caters to customers they know. I ordered a glass of wine. We ordered dinner. I asked for another glass of wine. One of the staff knocked over the glass of wine. It was cleaned up. I ordered another glass. When we asked for the check, I noticed they charged me for 3 glasses. I spoke to the manager. He started yelling "who knocked over your glass of wine, I will take it out of their pay". I was mortified. I told him I never heard of anything like this. The food was mediocre the waiter was not attentive.

Another pleasurable dining experience at Il Luogo. It seems they just get better each time I visit. This visit I tried a few different specials on the menu and I must say I was very pleased. The staff is always so accomodating and very pleasant. They do go beyond and above for their clients. The chef Victor makes a point to come through the dining room to be sure all are enjoying the meal. The management is also spot on, they also are consistent with how they run the dining room and kitchen. I am so happy I have found this true gem in Lynbrook!

Overall I enjoyed my dinner here but a word of warning that service is here is pretty slow. The restaurant was moderately filled but some of our requests weren't filled by our servers and the dinner for 4 people was nearly 2 hours and my father still had to get his dessert to go (he had gotten the pre-fixe menu). Some of the dishes are great, the rest are average. We had tried a bunch of things and the items with seafood (penne ala vodka, file of sole oreganata, fried calamari, etc.) were all wonderful. The chicken franchese was slightly below average but the free range chicken dish was really tasty. Veal marsala was good as well with lots of mushrooms which was much appreciated. I would likely dine here again with my family or on a date night. The ambiance was romantic and the dinner was not very expensive for what it was.
