Service was great. Didn't have to wait long for a table, but I recommend reservations for parties of 4 or more and if you want a seat outside (in warm weather!). Food was delicious and presentation was terrific as well.

Why would you want to go here? Well past its prime. If you're going to Glen Cove, definitely try La Ginestra on Forest Ave, which is far superior! As for directions to either place, I suggest using Google maps, Waze or one... More
