Chef-co-owner Wayne Wadington, who also owns La Plage in Wading River, has transformed this plain-looking but spacious neighborhood spot into a destination by virtue of his inspired cooking. His skillful use of prime ingredients brings new meaning to old classics. Try the perfect fried calamari with a vibrant tomato sauce or rich homestyle lasagna, done with ridged artisanal imported pasta. His herbed gnocchi in a hearty yet refined Bolognese sauce virtually dissolves on the tongue. Specials, such as slow-braised lamb shank with pancetta and Fontina risotto, excel. Finish with chocolate-dipped cannoli or freshly made zeppoli.
 decorated with trelliswork and gardens, is the scene of outdoor summer dining.

Hours: Daily: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Credit cards: Accepted
