A popular restaurant known for its large portions and classic dishes has been named Long Island’s Best Italian Restaurant, according to recently released results of a long-running competition.
Every year the Bethpage Best of LI asks Long Islanders to build a roadmap “to top-notch businesses and services in Nassau and Suffolk counties.”
Contest organizers have been counting votes since its inception, with winners ultimately chosen by Long Islanders who rely on these businesses every day.
In East Rockaway, Long Islanders voted Grandpa Tony’s on Althouse Avenue this year’s favorite, knocking out 2021 winner Vito’s Pizza in Glen Cove.
“What makes Grandpa Tony the best Italian restaurant on Long Island? Is it the way its chefs prepare every dish, putting the love and care of an Italian grandmother into every meal? Or maybe it’s the large portions of all Italian favorites, including entire menus of pizza, pasta and chicken, so the whole family can eat well,” according to organizers Bethpage Best of LI.
It has been noted that “Grandpa Tony’s is a real hit among Long Islanders looking for a quality Italian meal”.
“The chefs take care of every dish, even the coffee and the desserts. The restaurant is family-oriented and offers pasta nights, pizza nights, and even take-home pizza kits.
