Uva Rossa means 'red grape' in Italian. This wine bar specializes in wine and small, shareable plates with a varied selection of cheeses, bruschettas and pizza. In addition to full portion dining and our daily blackboard specials. Italian born chef/owner Antonio Bove creates outstanding Northern and Southern Italian dishes with a twist! Featuring recipes from his childhood. Amongst the restaurant's favorites are his meatballs topped with a tasty parmigiano sauce and of course his infamous eggplants balls, which are delicious and perfect for vegetarians.

There is an extensive wine list and we are now proudly featuring the first wine on tap in Long Island.

The restaurant has an old world, rustic feel with lots of exposed brick, stucco and wrought iron, and a romantic flair with candles everywhere.

So join us at Uva Rossa for a most memorable dining experience - from our food to our service and friendly atmosphere.

Would recommend but with the understanding that the noise level is just crazy. Hard to hear our
friends who are seating at our table. Excellent waiter service, food was good but unhappy with the noise level. Maybe Thursdays are not a good day.

Took my dad and his wife for a birthday celebration. They were floored all the way around. Sent my spouse and I a bunch of texts the next day saying that it was the best birthday dinner that they'd ever had and how memorable that night will be for them. It is the first time in my adult life that I have had the honor of taking my father to dinner apart from cooking for him at home. It was a special night for everyone. And, the staff was amazing. Our server was great! Food delish. Thanks!!!

Brought 5 friends and introduced them to Antonio's grilled peaches! They are still talking about them and the rest of our dinner. The staff always makes us feel welcome. We'll have to make another reservation before the grilled peaches are not on the menu!

We have been here a number of times always had a great experience. Introduced our friends to UVA Rosa and they loved it. We all had different dishes and shared. The salumi app and buratta were delicious. Service was great. It does get a little loud

My friend ordered the branzino -and for the price paid was very disappointed - she was served only a small half of the filet .. she was expecting a complete and whole piece of fish for the price .. the food is good but the very steep prices are not a reflection of the quality - our group agreed - we should have just ordered a handful of appetizers which are typically a very good - rather than the entrees - all of which were not as good as expected ..

The restaurant was very crowded for a weekday. We thought there was inadequate staff for the crowd. We waited more than 20 minutes for our drinks, despite ordering them upon arrival. The overall experience was not as good as it used to be.

I understand that this restaurant gets very busy, but we were continually rushed to order a cocktail, order our meals, look at the desert menu,etc. We hadn’t seen our friends in quite some time and wanted to have a nice meal together and catch up. Waiter was very pushy. On the positive side, the food was fabulous.

I don't get out too often but this is the third time I've been to this establishment. I find the atmosphere inviting - you can get into your own thing with your group and forget about it all. The acoustics are good - it's high energy but warm; white noise that doesn't disrupt your table's flow. The service is very good. Importantly, the meal is always spot on. Go for special occasion or simply for an amazing meal, any time. It's the first place I think of to book.

The food is fabulous. I’ve never had anything that I didn’t completely enjoy
I went the other night & had a reservation for two. My girlfriend got ill & couldn’t make it, so I arrived solo & asked if I could still keep the reservation even though I was alone. The hostess was the best! She made me feel so comfortable & welcome! It’s awkward eating alone, but not here. They cannot be any nicer or cordial. My favorite spot now
