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

Mio Posto means “my place.“

Now, make that “places.“

A new branch of the Oceanside restaurant is spreading the marinara in Hicksville, turning “Sunday sauce” into an everyday entree.

This Mio Posto already is packed to high decibels on weekends, with an hour's wait the norm for a table on Saturday night. It's as if Old Country Road never experienced eggplant Parmigiana.

But Mio Posto understands how the formula works: good food, fair prices, very big portions. Even a half-portion at the family-style spot could feed two.

So, dive into that Sunday special of meatballs, sausages and braciole, in plum-tomato sauce, best atop rigatoni or penne. The house's fra diavolo sauce is calibrated according to your specifications, so if you like it hot, this is your destination. Sample either the mixed seafood or lobster versions.

And go with a group. A very hungry one.
