La Rontonda restaurant (?)-- Pizzeria is a better description in my opinion. Food was nasty and the service was worse! Under staffed, had to wait a long time to get served, even though place was empty. The waiter had dirty fingernails and an attitude; so gross. DO NOT GO THERE, unless you like to be abused in LI (I agree 100% with the feedback from Jason Barrett below); and enjoy feeling nauseous after your meal... Zero stars from me. Do avoid!!!
If you like to be abused in Long Island – This has to be the worst restaurant in Great Neck, or anywhere. I've found better in impoverished third world countries. The way overpriced food is abominable and the service is worse than the food. The place should be renamed La Rotten. After being ignored and waiting hours to get served, the moldy cold pizza finally arrived and the pasta seemed like it came out of a can. The house wine tasted like vinegar and I'm sure the bottled water came from a garden hose. Hospital food is gourmet in comparison. They are now frequently empty and you still have to wait a long time to be seated and served. The waiters and other staff (who are all Hispanic and not from Italy although they pretend to be) are downright rude and hostile, openly provoking customers and blatantly telling people with children that this is not a family restaurant. They rudely advise that you go elsewhere if you have children (Is that legal?). Maybe they should pack up their tent and THEY should move elsewhere, like the middle of the desert. I suspect that any of the other favorable reviews were either from family, friends and staff of this restaurant or that these people must have been on heavy non-prescribed medication. Not surprisingly, La Rotonda closed their other restaurant nearby on Middle Neck Road, but it was actually better than this monstrosity. Their mistake was that they didn't close both restaurants at the same time.
High Value Neighborhood Restaurant – This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant specializing in brick oven gourmet pizzas. It has a wonderful, cozy ambiance and is a perfect place for a date. The Insalata Mista is delicious, as is the Pizza Margherita and other varieties of gourmet pizzas. Daily specials are also very good, but pastas are a little disappointing. Best of all, it is very reasonable. You can share a salad (large portion) and a pizza and only spend $20-25! Great Value!
