The long-awaited opening in Commack of the first We Love Italy eatery in the United States has arrived.
The restaurant group, with branches in Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom, is known for its fast-casual style and Italian imports.
Co-owners Matteo and Beatrice Galati said all their products are imported from Italy and cooked on the premises. You can also buy Italian products at the location.
Prices range from $8.99 to $13.99 for pastas; $7.99 to $9.99 for piadinas, which are similar to wraps; $3.99 to $5.99 for crepes; and $11.99 to $22.99 for pizzas.
The pasta selections include penne, fusilli, spaghetti, tagliatelle, potato gnocchi, and ricotta-spinach tortelloni. There are about a dozen sauces from which to choose, Galati said. New ones are likely to be added.
We Love Italy is open every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. It's expected to expand the hours on Friday and Saturday to close at 10 p.m. in the next few months.
