Italian Restaurant Plainview, NY

We have created a very warming family ambiance with stunning granite and wood bar complements stonework in the airy main dining room. Our family restaurant is perfect for everything from date night to a night out with the kids.

After all, what makes a family restaurant truly great? Don't let the chains fool you: it isn't sub-par cuisine served up in a mass-produced franchise. It's a feeling of welcome and comfort that the restaurant cultivates. To put it simply, it's the fact that you can bring the whole family and make everyone happy. That's exactly what we offer at our family restaurant.

Family Restaurant Syosset, NY We will always maintain our traditional, hearty southern Italian fare and emphasis on tomatoes, but the kitchen does make successful forays into central and northern regions, too.  And Steve's will prepare half-portions of its oversize productions on request.  

While our heart, and our menu, will always be with Southern Italy, our chefs are capable of preparing fine, authentic dishes from the Central and Northern regions too. You'll want to try it all, and that's why we offer half portions of our oversized, generous plates upon request.

Italian Restaurant Woodbury, NY We're a family restaurant that started with a family.  Palermo-born Steve learned to cook from his mother, learning the culinary secrets of Southern Italy from a young age. He perfected his craft over the years, creating modern twists on authentic favorites, while also doubling down on the classics. Today, he's proud to offer generous portions of the same high quality traditional Southern Italian food grew up eating.

Steve’s even does their own butchering to ensure the tenderset cuts of veal including house specialty Osso buco with risotto.  Other loyal repeat customers’ favorites include Gnocchi Bolognese, Veal chop Oreganata and Pappardelle principessa. The kitchen is expert in their use of Sicilian staples like imported extra virgin olive oil, olives, capers, garlic, and of course tomatoes.  This is what separates us from other Italian restaurants! We hope to create an experience that you won't find at any other Italian restaurant in the Plainview, Syosset & Woodbury, NY area! For all of your favorite classics and more, stop by our Italian restaurant and enjoy!

Family Restaurant Plainview, NY

At Steve’s, food is part of us because that's how we were raised; food was present at births, christenings, weddings, graduations and funerals.  Food is what reminded us we were family.  To this day, whenever one family member meets another and starts talking about something or someplace, the first question has to be, "Whadya eat?" When you come to our Italian restaurant, you will quickly find out why we enjoy food so much!
