I got the pizza and it was very good, but a small cost me $17. The beer selection was above average and the atmosphere was good. My friend got the salmon and it was a bit dry. I'd go for good Italian, but don't think it's going to be cheap.

The food was better than average, flavorful but not salty, the decor still in the 80's, needs updating.

Old tyme Italian food. Sauces vary by chef; but place is large and can be noisy at times.Offers a good variety of types of macaroni; portions are large. Salads are large as well but could be chopped into smaller pieces.

Had a salad and pizza...salad was terrible (big pieces of lettuce and way too much beets), but pizza was good. Menu is overwhelming...stick with the pizza. Must say though ice cream cake (for dessert) was magnificent!

Although Borrelli's has been around for decades, this was the first time my family ate there. It is an "old time" Italian restaurant. The food was delicious and the portions large. In addition to regular entrees they also serve pizza. We ordered the fried calamari which were served with an ample serving of marinara sauce. They were crisp and delicious.... More

On a 2 days business trip to Long Island, my colleagues and I were looking for a nice Italian restaurant. Staying in a hotel nearby, this restaurant was easy to find and convenient. The wait staff was pleasant. We were seated immediately. Although our table service was a bit slow, our server was very nice, and the food was amazing!... More

I'm happy to see an "old school" style Italian restaurant. Some say it's been here forever, but the food was delicious. I had a friend with me for dinner and we enjoyed our meals, and ended up in the bar for a drink and dessert. I would heartily recommend going here for a single dinner, date or family meal together.... More

The food was okay. If you are expecting traditional Italian food you won't find it. This is an American version of Italian food. I would go for something simple like pizza or pasta.
