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.

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

This place is superb. The owners are so accommodating and the entire staff was the same. The food is delicious. Everything that came out was on point. What a feast. By far the best Italian food on Long Island! The meatball sliders are fabulous. The stuffed artichoke was delicious and so we're all our dinners. The cedar plank salmon was... More

First ate here over 25 years ago. Had dinner there last night. Always very good food, substantial variety, good service. Free valet service lets you drop the car off right at the front door and brings the car back to you there when ready to leave.

I came here on a second date with my boyfriend and the first thing i loved about it was the atmosphere. They had a big italian guy singing frank sinatra and the inside is decorated very nicely.
