What’s in a name?

Sometimes, everything.

That’s why Milito’s is the new appellation for the former Emilio’s Fine Italian Restaurant on Route 110 in Huntington Station.

The restaurant, which opened late last year, advised that it wanted “to avoid confusion” with Emilio’s, the more casual Italian spot that has been open for decades in Commack, most of them primarily as a pizzeria.

Milito’s full title: Milito’s Fine Italian Restaurant.

Emilio’s in Commack, long known, has gone upscale a bit in recent years. It’s now named Emilio’s, subtitled “Italian Kitchen,” adding “pizzeria” and “cocktails” to the logo on its website.

The popular establishment’s menus currently include categories such as “mozzarella bar,” “calamari kitchen,” “eggplant station” and “butterflied Mediterranean style fish.”

Milito’s, as Emilio’s, earned a two-star rating in Newsday. The fare is unchanged. The restaurant serves dishes such as zuppa di pesce, grilled veal chop, grilled rib-eye steak, rack of lamb, and seafood risotto, plus familiar pastas and many specials.

Milito’s Fine Italian Restaurant is at 315 Walt Whitman Rd., opposite Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington Station; 631-824-6774.
