The menu was limited. Though I asked for no salt, the meal was highly salted. The waiters are pretentious and not very attentive. Very overpriced for what is offered.

A wonderful restaurant for a quiet elegant meal. The service is top notch from the moment you walk to your table to the when you leave. As soon as you sit down a bowl of celery, carrots, olives etc are placed on your table as well as a basket of bread. Drink orders are taken immediately and the drinks are... More

The food is good here, if conventional, and the place is a bit full of itself--service, at least for those who are not regulars, is a bit brusque and rushed. The atmosphere is quintessential Long Island elderly--you will not for a moment think you are in the City. But for those birthday dinners with one's parents, one could do worse.

Stresa has always been my favorite restaurant when I want elegance, fabulous ambiance, superb food, and excellent service. On a rainy Sunday earl evening we decided to visit Stresa to escape the lousy weather and enjoy Giorgio's culinary magic!! I am a creature of habit and ordered a Caesar Salad (one of the best in New York City) Porcini Risotto,... More

The vegetables that you get on your table as you are seated is a great start of your meal. The staff are professional and the food great. The Italian dishes are delicious.

Stresa is a long time local Restaurant, serving its same weekly followers for many years, with a beautiful friendly atmosphere, and always has a most magnificent Floral Arrangement on display. I recently attended a Major Birthday Celebration of 20 plus guests.....the event was nicely arranged, and the menu for the guests offered great choices for all. The Staff did everything... More

We attended a party of about 75 people and had the restaurant to ourselves for the event. The hosts had chosen a fixed menu, the middle one, and everything was excellent. Service was very good, the food was both delicious and nicely presented. Would definitely like to go back and be there when it is a regular menu! Very enjoyable... More

I love this restaurant, where I was a few times, since 1988. The manager is coming from the very famous Quo Vadis, which eventually closed in 1983. I really love the Italian traditional dishes and the top class level of this romantic place.

I had the Sea Bass and my wife had a veal dish, both were very good. As an appetizer I had the eggplant selection and it was also very good. We finished off with a selection of... More
