The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

E.A.T.S. Social House brings a casual, unpretentious style to the ex-site of Alaine's in East Massapequa.

It's an easygoing spot with friendly service. Order carefully and you'll have a good meal, too.

That means perusing the "tapas" list and picking meatballs stuffed with mozzarella: well-sauced and softball-size. The honey-barbecue chicken wings also are meaty and good. And the juicy strip steak is deftly grilled to order.

Caribbean pork with pineapple salsa, however, needs  a spark of spice as much as the tiramisu cake requires a shot of espresso.

E.A.T.S. needs some time to work things out. But it's a promising addition to the neighborhood.

E.A.T.S. Social House, 27 Carmans Rd., East Massapequa; 516-799-3287.
