Neraki Greek Mediterranean won Best Greek Restaurant on Long Island and Sufiya’s Grill was named Best Mediterranean Restaurant on Long Island in that contest.

Mama Lombardi’s offers a pizza and takeout menu as well as a happy hour menu in addition to their award-winning Italian menu.

They take special care to present the delicacies that call your name, like a feta-filled Greek salad with chunks of white meat chicken grilled to perfection, to lamb, eggplant and falafel specialties. Be sure to try the stuffed grape leaves. And don’t you dare leave without sampling some grilled octopus!
And Mediterranean cuisine served in a warm, inviting atmosphere with a diverse menu of items masterfully prepared with fresh ingredients has made Sufiya’s Grill a favorite among Long Islanders.
