Locale has become our Sunday lunch date spot! Not only is the food delicious but the service is spot on. Brandon made sure we were taken care of and needed for nothing making our experience that much better.

Met up with some long time friends and enjoyed everything from the ambiance and decor to food, drink and our server was great. All 3 of us enjoyed our food immensely. I had the Salmon, my friends had the Roughy and a chicken dish. Outstanding.

The pasta was the best I’ve ever had. I loved the Pappardelle Bolognese! I highly recommend that you order it. The Burrata salad was excellent!

I was not crazy about the dessert. It seemed like something they bought at Costco.

The food was better than expected but the drinks were expensive. The bus staff was very clumsy, one of the busser's spilled a full glass of water all over one of my guests laps and I think the bus person was more worried about getting in trouble than the guest getting cleaned up and the other bus person kept reaching over the table instead of going around to pick up plates and please think about not clearing someone's plate until everyone is done it is just not polite.

fantastic italian restaurant, deceiving on the out side (looks like a store front) inside is very large. they had a band playing in the bar area that was quite good.
we did not know what to expect...from the thinly sliced bread with this fantastic garlic/oil dip, thru the fried calamari, right into our entrees (pasta with grandma'smeatballs and a fantastic "loaded" seafood with linguini (clams, mussels and shrimp)) dinner was perfect. unfortunately we had to go to a play that night so we did not have time for desert....BUT we are going back very soon to enjoy it all again.

Came here on a quiet Wednesday evening, primarily for a quick bite before a show. Food was well presented and very good. We had a fantastic waitress, wish I could remember her name. Over all good vibe, a slightly more upscale option for those looking for a little more.

My 2nd time going & invited friends who were impressed. Waitress was absolutely fantastic. Her suggestions were right on point. Food was delicious although the baked clams & Chilean Seabass special was on the small side. Music was a bit on loud & with the speaker above us, it did require us to have to raise our voices. That said, the positives outway the negatives.

Absolutely delicious and our server, Amber, was friendly and very competent. I enjoyed the Orange Roughy Oreganata served with sautéed spinach and broccoli/carrots. Very good! My friend enjoyed a vegetarian pizza which she loved. Great dinner choice for wonderful food and excellent service. Good value too.

Our table was ready upon arrival and we ordered drinks pretty quickly. It took 25 minutes for the drinks to arrive at the table. The waitress came over once to say the bartender was swamped. The pizzas and meals were delicious but the entire meal took over 2 hours and our second round of drinks came when the bill was delivered. We had a party of 8 and tip was included on the bill which the waitress failed to mention. Overall we won’t be going back because of the service.

Great Italian we found on open table since we were going to the Patchogue theatre for a show. Ended up sitting at the bar (by choice) and had a great experience. Started with baked clams, very tasty but a bit small. Next the margarita pizza, done in a coal fire oven, it was awesome. Had the Chicken Paillard and it was excellent, great quality and portion size.
Ambience was casual but nice, noise level perfectly acceptable. Will definitely go back.

Food was delicious but took an hour and a half for it to come out, it wasn’t busy they just had a lot of people call in sick so it slowed down service. They were very apologetic and took off some apps from the bill.

I love this place. Great food and awesome decor and ambiance. I think we may be going to early to eat there though b/c the last several times they were trying to fill up the bar area before seating anyone in the awesome dining room. We prefer to sit in the dining room with the fireplace, it just has a better vibe than the front bar area. This time we had made reservations for 7 in advance because we were going to see a show at the theater so we needed to be done with dinner by a certain time. It seems that when we said we had a reservation we surprised the hostess b/c a table wasn't already put together in anticipation to give a big party a good seat in the house. Instead she made us wait a while she dragged 4 tables together for us in a corner where half the seating is bench that's against the wall, so 4 of us had to all squeeze in on the open end of the bench seating. When we saw where she was putting us I asked "what do we have to do to get seated in the dining room.", she laughed and walked off. I said to her "I am serious b/c the last 3 times we've come we were seated in here (bar area) and the last time was in this same spot." she looked back at me and kept walking away. Sure enough, 10 minutes later a table was seated in the dining room and 4 other tables were seated in there during the rest of our visit. But the food was YUMMY, So it made the visit worth it

Upon arrival place looked great had a good atmosphere. Bar service was good. The main dining service was horrible. From drinks at the table and ordering the waiter seemed very overwhelmed and non attentive.. we had to ask several times for the same things. At one point he never even came back. Not sure if I would rush back. Food was good not best Italian.
