This restaurant has pizza takeout counter in the front and family friendly sit down restaurant in the back. We had great service by a very friendly young man. The large menu has many choices, good specials and price fix options. The Chicken verdi was fabulous… It was a large portion served with pasta or salad. Will go back.

Whether you come for their pizza, heroes, salads...it's always well prepared made to order (that's why they take a bit longer). It's freshly made so it does take some time. Always yummy and delish! Located right off Jericho Turnpike so it's very acessible. Now it you want to stay and dine, you can at their dining room which is their... More

After the owner passed away several years ago, Cugini Pizza and Restaurant seemed to go adrift and couldn't find its bearing. Pizza came out of the oven limp, under cooked and didn't have much authentic flavor we always expected from Cugini. Worse, the cheese on the pizza seemed like a cheap imitation. I am happy to report the restaurant seems... More

The food is always good. A little pricey unless you eat the pre-fixe menu from Sunday through Thursday before 7pm.

I'm in my thirties and I have enjoyed this place since I was in middle school running around Mineola like I owned the place. At one point my husband and I ate lunch and dinner here daily. The family who owns this place are some of the nicest people and they really make you feel like family when you eat... More

My friends and co-workers had a very nice dinner this week at this hip looking Italian bistro. The minestrone was to die for. My chicken dish was nice but a little skimpy but that was ok. Prefer my sauce a little spicier but took my pasta home for hubby and he enjoyed it. Service and decor and table settings superb.... More
