Branzino, one called Villa Borghese is a hit or miss restaurant.
When we tried it we felt it was a slight disappointment, the atmosphere was nice althouh it is very small and crampt. We felt that the food was only fair and the prices were kind of high

The first time we were here it was pretty good, we had a nice waiter and the food was good but very expensive. The next time (second and last)The waiter was rude, we sat a table so small we didn't have enought room for the food. We ordered drinks and it took almost 20 min to arrive I would not recommend this place to anyone. There is little redeeming value to eating here. It was noisey as hell, the prices of their specials were a complete rip off. The the whole experience was very upsetting.

I CHALLENGE anyone to name a single reason why this restaurant is worth this overpriced menu.we paid $39.00 for a seafood dish. They don't tell you this when the waiter reads you their specials. They leave out the prices. Do your research before coming to this place

This has got to be the most expensive restaurant in Lynbrook.

The table at Branzino that we were given was insanely small and cramped, and the entire atmosphere was just ok. If you're going to spend this kind of money, I'd say go somewhere else.

Service was not good. Food was only fair. Prices were very high. You can do a lot better for you money

If you want something stuffy and pretentious, fine. If you want a real good meal at reasonable prices ..This is not the place
The food was only fine, but service was not. Our waiter was even condescending, which is never appropriate. You can do much better than this place... there are tons of other wonderful restaurants besides this stuffy, over decorated and over priced place.

This was a good place at one time, but I feel it has gone down hill.

Sorry but I can not tell a lie. My name is not Hillary Clinton

I agree..it seems that many Americans feel that being treated poorly goes hand in hand with fine dining which is ridiculous.

I ate here a couple of years ago and had to send back a dish that had the consistency of cardboard. They were initially incredulous that someone would send something back and were rude about it, then apologetic after someone in the kitchen checked it out and saw that it was WAY overcooked.

We have not been back since, as there are other places where excellent service and stellar food are not mutually exclusive.
