Large families find large servings of hearty Southern Italian food at this Oceanside branch of a three-restaurant Long Island chainlet.
Here, nobody stints on the garlic or the tomatoes. Portions are meant to serve from 2 to 3 people, with appetizers ranging in price from $11.75 to $24.75; pastas, from $16.75 to $23.75; main courses go $17.25 to $27.75. Specialties include such classics as zuppa di clams, chicken scarpariello and linguine with white clam sauce.

A fireplace adds ambience, and there's also a room for private parties of up to 100.
