“What’s the best restaurant on Long Island?”

This is, of course, an impossible question to answer, full of bias and personal preferences. I used to sidestep a response by saying something like, “It depends on what kind of food you like.”

Nowadays, however, I embrace my subjectivity and answer straightaway: Stresa.

"Stresa's service is excellent and extremely professional. Stresa features dishes such as roast baby chicken in rosemary and garlic, various fresh fish preparations that change daily, and some of the best veal and pasta dishes on Long Island. "



"Stresa still evokes the finer restaurants of another decade, when you were cosseted in every way, from the extras that appeared at your table to the personal attention that came to be expected."
