10. Spezia (645 Middle Country Rd., St. James, 631-265-9228): Soulful Italian dishes are the foundation of Spezia, a welcoming, unpretentious newcomer with fine service. Recommended: rice balls, grilled polenta with sauteed mushrooms, shrimp and tomatoes, meat-filled lasagna, double-cut pork chop stuffed with prosciutto, Fontina cheese and Italian sausage, sparked with hot peppers, lobster any style, but especially fra diavolo, eggplant rollatine, tiramisu.
