Huntington Edition: La Famiglia
La Famiglia, located in Huntington, calls itself a southern Italian deli. They appear to have these sorts of items, as well as a dinner menu. Thinks pizzas, pasta dishes, etc.
The restaurant has roots in Calabria, as the family's cultural heritage is Italian. They use the same recipes brought over from Calabria maintained through the generations.
The environment in this restaurant is warm, welcoming. Super cozy. The service great. I thought a pretty straightforward dish would be the classic spaghetti and meatball pasta.
I found it fairly average. The pasta was cooked a little too long, and the sauce was a bit watery for my tastes. It wasn't bad; it just wasn't super exciting to me. Meatball was a bit dry. Nothing terrible, just nothing great.
This little cannoli, for dessert, though, was pretty tasty! It had a nice crisp pastry and delicious creamy ricotta center. Overall, decent experience. But I've had better Italian in the area.
