The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Once again, a Long Island restaurant has returned from the great hereafter; this time, it's La Rotonda in Great Neck.
The straightforward Italian spot, which opened in 2002 and closed in 2014, just reopened under the ownership of a former chef co-owner, George Pecoraro, and a former waiter, Henry An.
The place has been spruced up a bit but remains essentially as it was, Pecoraro said. And the menu is exactly what you may remember, including such items as Margherita pizza, shrimp Fra Diavolo, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken Parmesan and veal saltimbocca, which, at $20.95, is the costliest dish.
La Rotonda is at 8 Bond St., Great Neck, 516-439-4870.
