La Ginestra - NY
La Ginestra is our favorite "go to" place. We drive nearly 60 miles round trip to enjoy their cuisine almost weekly, and for very good reason. The food is unquestionably delicious and consistently expertly prepared and professionally presented. Our favorites, Manny and Melissa, always take the best care of us and make us feel like we are at home in our own space, and the hosts, Enzo, Monica and Gus are always gracious. (They also make the best biscotti in town.)
Can't ask for more or better!!
This is a staple in my life! After over 30 years, it never disappoints! It’s amazing in every way! My favorite restaurant and I was in the restaurant business! They all know what they’re doing to the highest level!
DELICIOUS!!! Food was excellent - taste, temperature, presentation - AMAZING - will DEFINITELY be back - Cafiero
Food was good and the staff were very nice but the noise level was not good. Lost of big tables with people who didn't seem to care that they were disturbing others
Reliable yet fresh. Great food, great service, great place.
Always the best, in every way!
Outstanding every time!
Delicious food. Beautifully prepared. Professional staff. Authentic recipes .
I was there with my best and only date - my beautiful wife. As always the ambiance was great, the food delicious, the staff superb, and the hosts as friendly and accommodating as can be.
always good very busy but food is always wonderful
Wonderful food and friendly staff!
Food was good but we were rushed out of the restaurant
The food was delicious and the service was great. I would definitely eat there again.
Always great food and service
Fabulous in all ways. The friendliness, service, ambience and food superb! I would rate this gem a “10” Cannot wait to go back!
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
Food and customer service is always amazing!
Always a delicious meal in a warm and friendly setting with courteous and professional staff. My favorite place!!
Food is off the charts great. Very nice dining wxperience
I identified this as a special occasion because every time we visit La Ginestre it is a special occasion. The food is superb, the service is extraordinary, and the hosts could not be more kind, genuine, and friendly.
This is a splendid place for dinner. The food and service are excellent, the room is very comfortable and no matter what night we go, the patrons seem always to be having a good time. A favorite entree of mine: Halibut over pureed cauliflower
Special Place, Priceless, Beautiful way to spend a special occasion with love ones.
The best! We always have a wonderful experience at Ginestra! Can’t wait to go back!
Wonderful!! Beautiful way to spend any Sunday evening.
👍👍 Best dining experience on Tehran North Shore!
It must be great! We keep coming back for more!
This was the second time we did a dinner for 6 in 4 weeks, bringing our close friends back for everything they enjoyed the last time and then some.
Excellent food, service, ambiance, and overall hospitality. Couldn't be more pleased.
Good restaurant with good food BUT it’s quite loud. Hard to have a conversation.
Exceptional food and service every time! Melissa was the best. Between her incredible sense of humor and charm, and her wonderful ability to see to it that everything is just perfect, you can't help but want to come back for more and more!
Our ongoing compliments to the chef, our hosts and hostess, and the entire team at La Ginestra. We always feel welcome and at home and are proud to bring along our closest friends to enjoy with us.
The food was excellent . So was the service. Not too loud they Yu ohh uh can hear the conversation.
Good great service great atmosphere great noisy in my seating area and bumped into due to I was in a “bad” seat kept getting bumped. Other than that all was great! I suppose I should have said something but I didn’t 🙄
My favorite Italian food! I love the Funghi Papperdella and usually have the Branzini Grilled over a mixed salad but this time I had the Eggplant Lasagna which was delicious!
Service is always great - subtle and attentive!
La Ginestra is ALWAYS good. It's a repeat customer place, where everyone feels welcome. And the food is consistently delicious !
One of the best Italian restaurants on Long Island! The food and service was amazing as always!
The best bronzini! Pappadella fungi is my favorite appetizer. They’ll even do half orders! Manny always so attentive and non intrusive! Thanks Gus and Enzo!
Food was delicious and plentiful!
Service was friendly and warm!
We would come back in a heartbeat!
Tell your friends and family not to miss the opportunity to dine here!
We were there on a Sunday night. Noise level low. The service and food were excellent
slightly above average Italian restaurant. When it first opened in 1980's it was a hot spot with great Italian food. Now it is the typical Long Island Italian restaurant.
Fabulous from beginning to end..service, food, atmosphere. Highly recommend!
