Fine Italian Cuisine


  Home General Info Directions Contact Specials
Owned and operated by the Iavarone Family, Iavarone Cafe is an extension of their long tradition of fine food and excellent service.  This casual restaurant which was completely renovated, has all the warmth and comfort of a family friendly trattoria.  

The professional staff serves up Italian favorites with an imaginative twist.  Iavarone Cafe is known for its sensational pizzas featuring their ever popular grandma pies and margherita pizzettes which are made in their brick oven.

Zagat calls Iavarone Cafe a “definite winner” with “home cooked” Italian fare “that’s always spot-on.”  Start with stuffed artichoke or for a lighter taste, try the avocado salad.  Pastas include the classic primavera, fresh filetto di pomodoro, and succulent lobster ravioli.  Tender veal, chicken, eggplant or shrimp parmigiana; veal chops; and dry aged steaks grilled to order are among the many delicious entrees.  The pastry chef prepares decadent desserts which are luscious endings to your meal.  They offer a list of reasonably priced wines, the perfect pairings to go with your meal, and a full bar. 

With more than 80 successful years in business, they’ve mastered the art of fine food and gracious hospitality.  The newly expanded Iavarone Bros. Gourmet Market, next door, ensures you will always get the best products and freshest ingredients.  Come and enjoy these hidden gems in the Lake Success Shopping Center.
