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

It happens all the time in these parts: One Italian restaurant goes out; another is quick to take its place. Pasquale’s Pizza & Pasta Café is now plying pasta and pies in the former Bellmore digs of Brooklyn Pizza Café.

In classic LI Italian environs (checkered tablecloths, lots of brick), I enjoyed a thin crust Margherita “personal” pie. I liked that the freshly baked bread came straight from the pizza oven and that the linguine with clam sauce was al dente and garlicky.
