We were there on a Saturday night with 6 o'clock reservations, we were seated as soon as we arrived. The wait staff is very attentive and took care of us immediately. The fried zucchini appetizer is very good, light and fresh. We also ordered fried clams which were tasty. I ordered lasagna with a side of meatballs and the mrs ordered a chicken dish which was good. Here's where the disappointment is, my wife's dinner and my meatballs came out together but no lasagna. They said it was on its way but by the time it arrived which was between 10-15 minutes my wife was done with her meal and I wasn't in the mood to eat my main course. The waiter did apologize once and that was fine, but I don't think I should have paid for my main course. I'm not one to complain so I had them pack it up and we took it home. The atmosphere is nice, it was remodeled and they did a very nice job, noise level is moderate but it's ok.

I’ve gone to this restaurant
Off and on for the last 15 years. Always good food and a good atmosphere for conversation with good service. What a different story last Fri when I wanted to dine with my son and talk. I was put in a section with 2 huge parties.... no other diners. I asked to be moved, I was told there were no other tables. BIG mistake for management. Good food, horrendous service and noise level. I , uncharacteristically asked for a manager, the mger was my waiter. When I spoke of my discontent over service. He asked what I’d like him to do?? I asked what HE’D like to do... and rcd low priced app off my bill, no apology, in fact he asked why I wasn’t tipping “ the waiter”. I explained that the 1 st check I did... not wanting to penalize wait staff for poor service, and bad choice of mgt to place table where they did. Now that I knew my waiter WAS the manager....
I deemed it unfathomable to tip.

Always one of my favorite restaurants. Excellent for special occasion or everyday dining. My prosciutto melted in my mouth and my crispy duck entree was outstanding. My husband couldn’t stop praising his Halibut entree. Don’t forget to try their biscottis!!! Their menu and specials give everyone many choices to enjoy a wonderful dinner. Sal and his staff go out of their way to make you feel special. We are very lucky to have this neighborhood gem.

Fabulous dinner! From the amazing apps to the yummy homemade pasta we loved it all! Great specialty drinks we had a garden martini with fresh cucumber and a fig martini

The food, ambiance and excellent service never wavers. I brought a group of six women, seven counting myself, and everyone was very impressed with their overall experience. They all expect to return!
The cost for certain dishes off the menu can be a bit pricey, but not disappointing.

Exceptionally pleased with everything, service, staff and their personalities,ambience, and the food is marvelous! Perfect spot for our 51st. Anniversary dinner which was the day of our reservation. We’ve already recommended your establishment to others and especially to our daughter who will be celebrating her Wedding Anniversary in August. My husband and I have been to many of the highly rated New York Italian Restaurants and yours most definitely up there with them all. Just sorry it took us so many years to dine with you.

Sincerely,
Eric(Ricky) & Susan Schwartz

Our servers, Eddie and Guillermo were efficient, quick and above all, very personable. We’ve been back to Trattoria DiMeo numerous times over a number of years and I’ve got to say that the chef/owner, Sal, serves up perfect Italian fare night after night. I had the most basic item on the menu, penne and meatballs which had a delicious sauce which I loved. I truly recommend a visit very soon.

Great service and an amazing recitation of the complex Mother's Day specials! The food was superb and we felt well pampered throughout. Also nice to see Cabernet Franc - the local specialty - on the menu after a day exploring the North Fork wineries!

Food good, shrimp parm seemed a little smaller than usual for some reason and the flourless cake was a little dry. Everything else was very tasty
