BiVio Ristorante Ratings and Reviews

Every time I go here they never crease to amaze me , that is why we keep coming back.
The specials are always great and reasonable ( not like a lot of other places where their specials cost you a lot more) .The new outside area is so clean and pretty , we had drinks there first and then went inside4 for dinner (on a warmer night we would have stayed outside)
If you have been thinking about going here ,stoop thinking and go ! Stop wasting your time at other restaurants , this one wont disappoint you .

Chicken scarparello was bland and was sitting on a plate of oil. Not what I expected. Service was fine. They had a man by the bar singing but it was so loud, I couldn't hear anything else. Finally, the manager asked him to lower the volume which was so much better. We all thought our good was just ok. Honestly, there are better Italian restaraunts. Would not go back
GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, FUN NIGHT
We have been to BiVio's many times to see a friend of mine who performs there on Saturday nights, Johnny Cupples...he's the entertainment in the bar area. We had dinner twice, the most recent was last Saturday and not only is the food delicious, the service is wonderful, staff, including bar staff, very friendly and make you feel at home. We had the best time with our friends and look forward to going again very soon...I had the chicken monte carlo, with eggplant, roasted red peppers and mozzarella cheese, I highly recommend it..
Went to Bivio over the weekend and had another fantastic time. The food was delicious and the service top notch. Fantastic peanut butter tartufo special for dessert. There was a gentleman singing in the bar area who was very good. Would love to see him perform again. Very affordable prices for the portions you get. Thanks for always exceeding our expectations Bivio!
Had never been despite BiVio being in my neighborhood, so we decided to give it a try.
Good cocktails, food & service plus they didn't rush us out, it was nice to linger. All 4 of us ordered different items & were all pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. The BiVio salad was excellent. All the mains were very good as was the creme brulee & the gratis biscotti.
We will be back :-)

My boyfriend and I had a great dinner at BiVio, we went last Thursday for the first time and liked it so much that we went back that Sunday with his parents! The food is super affordable and tastes great. I like that it is a small restaurant; we have gone during "off" hours but I like that we had a nice intimate dinner. The waitstaff is great, really helpful and friendly. I am very picky and was able to find not only something that I liked, but something I loved! And they are willing to make whatever dish you're in the mood for (within reason, of course!). We truly enjoyed coming here and will absolutely be back again soon!
Very good experience
We tried BeVio based on the wonderful reviews and were very happy. The restaurant had a very nice menu, the service was very good. Loved our waiter, Tom. We were very happy with our food. The portions were big and the food was delicious and the pricing was good. Our friends had fish, I ordered a chicken dish. My husband is very picky and ordered he salmon. He was impressed.
Dinner for six and everyone was satisfied
We had a group of six and everyone loved their meal. The specials were wonderful , but the beet salad was more a salad with some beets. That is the only complaint any of us had. The food was great and the portions generous, and the service was excellent. Thank you for a great dining experience.
This is my favorite place
If you are looking for a nice restaurant and terrific food this is the place. Nick and Martha are always so welcoming to their patrons calling them by name and asking how they are doing.
Tom and Frank are professional in every way to recommending the specials are seeing if you want something prepared a special way. I am so glad this restaurant is close to where I live so that I can go there even just for a drink and friendly talk,there are not many places like this in the Commack /Dix Hills area anymore. Get to know this place and you will agree with me.
See you there
Great meal and great service
We love dining at Bivio. They always pay so much attention to detail and make us feel so comfortable and welcome. We try to pick a new dish each time because everything we've had has been so delicious. There was great entertainment at the bar that we enjoyed both before and after dinner. Whenever we dine the owner always checks in to make sure everything was up to our expectations. Can't wait to go back.
We love Bivio's!
My wife and I have be patrons of Bivio’s for about five years now. Martha and Nick your owners/hosts are both very gracious and very accommodating. The food is excellent and is fairly priced. If there is something that you would like and not on the menu just ask the friendly staff. Tom the head waiter will have the kitchen whip up any dish/pasta/sauce the way you like it. I also have to mention Frankie, Matthew, and Derek who help Tom deliver Long Island’s best appetizers and entrees. Some of my favorites include, shrimp cocktail, salmon carpaccio, Atlantic Salmon, Pappardelle Bolognese, Pecan Encrusted Tilapia to mention a few. If you’re in the mood for a cappuccino coffee make sure Frankie is working that night. Oh, I have to mention desserts. Bivio kicks it old school with zabaione and banana foster desserts. Frankie also specializes in desserts. Great presentation.
Went to Bivio last week and had the most delicious chicken parm I ever tasted. The oysters we had as an appetizer were wonderful. My wife and I shared a nice tartuffo for dessert and had 2 after dinner coktails. Service throughout the night was top notch and everyone made me feel like I was part of the family there. I can't think of a better Italian restaurant anywhere on Long Island. We will be back very soon!
Don't waste your money
We had New Year's Eve reservations for 9pm We weren't seated until 9:45. They were under staffed. Because they were doing seating starting at 9 they people who had the 7 o'clock reservation were not done so everyone who were scheduled for 9 we crowded in the bar area. Service was slow getting drink orders was terrible ,dinners didn't come out until 11:30 They should never do New Year's Eve ever again. It's a neighbor Italian restrauant for people who can't travel into Huntington Their bread and sauce is weak at best. There are so many better places to go. I'm sorry that I made a poor choice.
Dined at Bivio this past weekend and noticed there were some changes on the menu. No major changes, just a few new pasta dishes and a few new chicken dishes. We were with a big group so we all ordered different things and shared. Each dish was delicious. Someone in our party was looking for a dish that was no longer on the menu and they told us that they could make it for her no problem. We were very happy they could accommodate. Before and after dinner we enjoyed great live music at the bar. The owner, as always, checked in with us a few times during the night to make sure everything was to our liking. Can't wait to be back and try the new dishes that we didn't get a chance to experience. I find myself having a new favorite dish each time I go to Bivio.
A neighborhood favorite
I was first drawn to Bivio, because it is only 7 minutes from my home. What a bonus that the food is great, the atmosphere is inviting and the service is always good! We've been here for family celebratory dinners and for a "quick bite to eat." Bivio pleases us on a consistent basis.
Have been to Bivio several times and love everything about the place. My wife and I didn't feel like cooking on Thanksgiving so we decided to take the family to Bivio. They had a nice variety on the Holiday menu including a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings, prime rib, and about 4-5 regular dishes from the normal menu. I had the prime rib and it was out of this world. We had a party of 12 and the service was just as good as always. The whole family loved it and we plan on celebrating the next holiday at Bivio as well!
Always a great experience
Another very good meal in a friendly comfortable atmosphere. We love going to Bivio- the food is consistently good, the wait staff is friendly and efficient and the tables are not top of one another. It is a pleasure to not have to scream at people at your table just to have a conversation and be heard!

Quite possibly the best dinning experience I have ever had.
I thought it would be nice to surprise my wife with a date night out last Saturday at a recommended restaurant. Although, my wife and I were late for our reservation the wonder host seated us quickly, even though the restaurant seemed to be filled to capacity. The ambience was exquisite. The setting was romantic enough for a dinner date with your significant other but still spacious and inviting for a family outing. The food was outstanding, which is surprising because my wife is extremely hard to please. The wait staff was probably the highlight of the whole experience. They were attentive, humorous and knowledgeable. Everything we requested came promptly. The wine selection was extensive and the bar was impeccable. But the live music is what really put the evening over the top. It added the right touch to set the evening. The man/woman duet was incredible. We will definitely be dining there in the near future. Thank you so much to entire staff at Bivio for a night we will never forget.
We will be back!
Brought another couple there on 10/31/15. We absolutely loved it. The food was great--beet salad, fried calamari both very tasty. Chicken Marsala and Chicken BiVia were extremely moist and delicious. All of the food was piping hot. Even the string beans were crisp and done to perfection. Portions are generous. The wine glasses were also brought out filled to the top. The owner, Nick, has done wonders with this place that used to be Fred's Diner for over 30 years. Totally re-done with a nice bar, Italian atmosphere and plenty of privacy at the tables. There are two rooms so you have a choice as to where to sit. Service is great. Nick stops by to check on everything, and our servers, Derek and Frank were wonderful. Not overly expensive, but comparable to other restaurants of its type. Give it a try. You will not be disappointed.
We constantly go to Bivio. Every time we go the delicious food, excellent service, and dynamic bar scene is always consistent. We brought some friends who had never dined there before and they were all extremely impressed. They called us the next day and asked when we could go back again! There was great entertainment at the bar while we had some pre dinner drinks and watched the Mets game. We were interested in watching the Mets game so we didn't sit until about 90 minutes after our reservation. We weren't rushed by the staff at all, very accommodating. They even came over and gave us updates on the game once we sat down. It's nice when you receive that kind of personal service. Very affordable prices as well for the amount of food we ate and wine we drank. This restaurant never disappoints, we will be back again real soon!
Lively crowd, delicious food and top-flight staff!
We went to celebrate a birthday and were greeted immediately by the owner. They gave us a beautiful table in the back where we were immediately met by a server and another staff member, both of whom were especially attentive and fabulous. A group of six, we ordered a variety of food including the pumpkin ravioli special, the fish special (a whole bronzino), chicken scarpariello (which comes on the bone), chicken parmigiana, and several of the appetizer specials including beet salad and kalamari. The salad was perfect (and larger than you would expect) and the kalamari was devoured. The specials were outstanding, especially the pumpkin ravioli which was served with a light cream sauce. The chicken parmigiana was a big hit as three of us ordered it -it comes with the bone on and is pounded flat. Perfection. We also did a pumpkin special for dessert - the pumpkin tartufo - and also ordered a regular tartufo. The pumpkin tartufo was milder, the pumpkin fans in our group loved it. The regular tartufo was loved by all (except me - they finished it before I had the chance to try it).
BiVio is the perfect trifecta for a restaurant: delightful atmosphere, wonderful food, and a doting staff that treats everyone as if they are family. Everyone made my mom's birthday special which meant the world to us. We can't wait to go back.
