My in laws live in Floral Park and I feel like we're always going to the same restaurants there, and in Great Neck. Has anyone tried Fiore's? And in terms of Great Neck, how about Oevo?

    Mary, we like Fiore's a lot.
    We've never had a bad meal there and most have been exceptional.

    They have a great Caesar salad in an assiago cheese basket, their crab cakes are wonderful.
    Their osso buco and duck special are excellent.
    I tend to eat chicken there and it's terrific. My husband loves their ravioli of the day.

    Wish we had a local place like that by us and we live in Great Neck.
    Hopefully, we'll soon try Oevo, since I've read such nice reviews about it.

        Fiore's is a charming place owned and run by a husband (chef) and wife (hostess). I moved to Florida a few years ago but try to get back there when I'm visiting. I've never had a meal there that I didn't enjoy. They have the most tender and delicious calamari. The whole dining experience is wonderful. Please make an effort to have a meal there as the owner recently told my father that the economy has really hurt their business!

          I like Koenig's in Floral Park. Good German food.

            After I posted this question, and before I got responses, I actually made a reservation at Oevo for tomorrow night. I'm torn though; All of these sound really good! I will definitely check out Fiore's another time. Maxlet, let me know if you think that's the better place to go for a birthday dinner. Thanks!

              Where have you been in Great Neck /Floral Parkand what if anything did you like? If you go to Oevo don't forget to report back.

                Wow. Where haven't I been? I don't live there but my in-laws do and they eat out a lot. I like Vespa Cibo Buono in Great Neck. My in laws like Iavorone's in New Hyde Park but I don't think the food is great and the service is really slow. They also like Stella's in Floral Park but, again, it's really slow and I don't think the food is all that good. Elaine's in Great Neck is supposed to be excellent but I haven't been there.

                  Oh Stella's is my absolute favorite (and I've been to tons of restaurants all over the city). I actually posted asking if anyone knows of a similar place in Manhattan. That veal parm. is the dish of my childhood and I could eat it every day.
