Interesting eatery. Flavorful dishes presented in a colorful display of expertise! The aroma of dishes reminds me of little restaurants of Rome. Almost authentic in nature, impressed my wife and me. My son and his girlfriend are a regular customer at this place. One of these days I may try their dinner dishes.

Great service, friendly ambiance, and delicious food. A great mix of old style Italian and creative American influence. Good portions that feed more than one, encouraging sharing. Grilled calamari was outstanding.

Our ages ranged from 9 to 75 and everyone was happy with their food. I was so pleased with the friendliness and competence of all the staff. It was a rainy Friday night. Carle Place was packed and yet all went down so smoothly at Cafe Formaggio. This is not "gourmet" dining but hearty huge portions of tasty hot food... More

If you need or know someone who needs gluten free food this is the real deal. The gluten free menu is pages long. I have tasted both their gluten free and regular menu items and both are excellent. They are on the pricey side but well worth it. if you like Italian then you will really enjoy classic Italian dishes.

So lucky to have found Cafe Formaggio. We are staying in the area while a family member is being treated in a local hospital. We have never been to Long Island before and had no idea what restaurants were good or where to go. After a long day at the hospital, we crash landed at Cafe Formaggio. We needed some... More

Lovely food that felt home cooked, particularly the mamas sauce which one colleague had and enjoyed. Decent portions and excellent service. Would recommend a visit if you are in the area
