One of the oldest restaurants in Long Beach, Gino’s is a family-owned establishment that has served generations of locals wonderful pizza and other italian specialties for as long as most can remember. It’s undergone renovations over the years and is probably more appealing on the eyes than the Gino’s that you remember from the past.
Since 1996 Salvatores has been rocking out pizzas in the north shore community of Port Washington. Just a little ways away from Manhasset Bay, but not exactly overlooking the water, the restaurant is famous for its high-heat, coal-fired pies. Just don’t expect any slices here – they’re not welcome.
Italian cuisine, Frank Sinatra on the sound system and way oversized portions are the hallmark of both of the Ciao Baby locations on the island. While Massapequa, on the south shore, is home to one location, we hit their north shore Commack location to be treated to some of their interesting menu items.
1937 was a big year. The Hindenburg Disaster occurred, Of Mice and Men was published and Blue Moon Pizzeria was established. If we were to transport ourselves back in time to this coal-fired pizzeria, we’re pretty sure that not much would be different and the pies would be just as tasty.

PASSIONE is new to the Carle Place dining scene. It sits in the same shopping center as the now defunct 6th Avenue Electronics store and is just a few doors down from one of the area’s favorite restaurants, LL Dent.

We ventured inside recently to scope out the space and we were genuinely surprised at what was lying inside.
We stopped by Skinny Pizza not too long ago to take our viewers on a video walkthrough of this unique pizza spot in Roslyn Heights. They’re utilizing organic ingredients, guilt free options and many varieties of Skinny Pizza Pies. Enjoy the show!
On Stewart Avenue, located south of Main Street in Huntington, just off the beaten path, lies Bin 56, a small plates / tapas bar and restaurant that caters as much to wine as it does to small plates.
Before they opened up shop on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, San Marzano came to Merrick with their quick-fired brick oven pizza creations. Located in a small spot on a corner of Merrick Avenue, just north of the train station, the nights are hopping at this italian favorite.
