To us, Cugini is home...so you are more than a customer, You are a friend who comes to visit, we extend our welcome to you as a guest in our home.
We will, as we have for over 20 years, combine the finest of ingredients with the most attentive service to give you an affair to remember. Our facilities are also available for business, luncheons, meetings and other special events.
I don't like the fact that you get charged an extra 4% if you use your credit card. Other restaurants do not do that. Also, the salad dressing used to be better. Someone changed it.
The food was very good; the main waiter was very kind but his 2 other waitresses made a few mistakes. The menu on OpenTable is different than what they gave us- price-wise and food-wise. Lastly, there was a very loud family behind us and it was so distracting. It seemed like an off night.
Sweet place with very caring waitstaff. Tasty Chicken Franchise- my test of all restaurants! Will be back. Thank you
The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Our waiter was kind answered our questions about the food. He spoke italian to my dad
The food here is absolutely wonderful, with sizable portions! Love the monchina~ whether it is shrimp or chicken! Everyone always enjoys whatever they order here!
Cugini, located in Mineola, NY, is a fine Italian restaurant with a great variety of dishes to choose from.
I’ve been enjoying Cugini’s delicious food for many years. I recommended it to two of my cousins who’ve never been there before. We had a lovely cousins’ night this past Friday, and one of them remarked that it was the BEST Shrimp Fra Diavlo that she ever had! Great service and most importantly we were not rushed.
The staff is pleasant , the food delicious, the prices are fair . Go there, you will be happy you did !
Service, food quality and serving sizes were perfect.
The Owners and all staff are very friendly.
Food and service was very good. We enjoyed our meal. The problem came when the check arrived. To my surprise a credit card charged was added as I was not paying by cash. Bummer. This should have been disclosed early on. I usually carry little cash and I had to use my credit card to pay the bill. Most likely will not return to Cugini.
Excellent food and service at a reasonable price
Cugini is a pizzeria with a restaurant room for casual dining. I overall liked my experience. The food is very traditional and I would score them above average. The service was prompt and pleasant. I had an excellent bottle of Brunello. The atmosphere is family friendly and the prices were very good. I would rate them as an excellent value. I would recommended to a friend. Foodies will not appreciate the traditional cuisine.
This was our first time and the food, service and atmosphere were very good. We will definitely be back.
The service was excellent AND they SMILED! You don't get much of that these days. My eggplant was absolutely delicious and my husband enjoyed his chicken piccata. A steady flow of people is one sign that it's good, the delicious food was another. This was only our first time here but, we will be back.
I Always enjoy having a meal at Cugini , it’s my go to for great Italian food.
The service and food were perfect as always. Everything was just as we expected.
Nice Dining experience. Delish baked clams with plenty of sauce for dipping interesting bread. Veal parm and Francese were served hot and accompanying house salad was fresh
Always excellent..never a bad meal or experience in 20 years. Local gem.
Cuigini’s has become our go to place to grab dinner. It’s comfortable. Service is always great and the food is always satisfying. Their bread basket is amazing and that’s something one doesn’t always speak of.
Just try it. You’ll like it
Excellent food. Perfect service. Large glass of good wine. Clean and friendly environment. Large selection of dishes. Very good price.
Cugini is a restaurant/pizzeria which offers good food at a reasonable price.
The dining area is ok, a bit tight and noisy when crowded. The food is good , and plentiful. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Making reservations online didn't seem to be checked as the hostess had no idea we booked a time slot, so i'd confirm seeing before you go especially on a weekend.
Always excellent! Been a regular 20 years. Service, food, friendliness & atmosphere, Quality, selection, cocktails always above par. Local gem.
Cugini has been around for many years.. It always pleases us to be there. Great food, friendly waitstaff and comfy atmosphere.
First time at this restaurant with another couple. A hidden gem..excellent in all rating
categories. Very pleasant surprise. Will return.
Cugini's is a favorite restaurant of mine and my husband's. We come here quite often. It's very cozy. The food is always good and so is the service. We know the staff and we're always seated promptly. We've brought friends who don't live in the neighborhood, and they make the drive because the food, ambience, and service is so good.
Charming ristorante in back, great drinks, service & ambiance..have never had a bad experience or meal in 20 years dining here.
The staff is great, and food very very good. I had the shrimp francese which was excellent. Pizza extremely tasty. My kids couldn't stop eating the bread. Very nicely priced. We would definitely return.
We've been here a number of times and food is always good and very reasonable. We even had a bottle of wine for $26 which was good.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Everything was well prepared and good service too! we will be back.
Went for an early Father's Day dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed the food. Got gluten free pasta option. Good service. Food fresh and hot.
We been coming here just for alittle while but really happy to add this to our dining options.
It's a great pizza place with an attached restaurant. Service is always great.
Overall food is tasty and plentiful.
Oh, their rolls are delicious. Save room for those.
They could not have been nicer! The table was not ready upon arrival and they made several appetizers for us ....the food was delicious!
We ate here for the first time and were pleasantly surprised! The food and wine were delicious, and the service was very attentive. Walking through the pizza section of the restaurant, we entered a lovely and very busy dining room. We will be returning soon!
Been going here over 20 years, the back room is a hidden gem..ambiance, service, drink & food 4 star in a relaxed atmosphere. Never had a bad meal or experience. Always greeted warmly.
