Uncle Bacalas Fine Italian Seafood
Uncle Bacala’s specializes in Italian-style seafood and other inventive dishes in its warm and cozy New Hyde Park eatery. For a tantalizing start to your meal, enjoy the mozzarella in carrozza cheese-stuffed fried country bread and the mashed potato and mozzarella croquettes, both served with marinara sauce. Some of Uncle Bacala’s house entrées include the breaded salmone in agrodolce served over eggplant in a honey garlic sauce, the beef filetto di manzo with mushrooms, roasted potatoes and spinach in gorgonzola-cognac sauce and the apricot-glazed grilled pork chop. Pasta dishes are also popular with diners at Uncle Bacala’s, with options including the baked penne gratin with pancetta and cheese in a creamy sauce and the zucchini linguini fra diavolo, all of which can be made gluten free.
Round out your amazing meal with a homemade dessert, such as the fruit and caramel topped Belgian waffle Waffellini.
Poor service. We had an issue with the order and service. Not very apologetic staff.
The food was delicious, and were very accommodating with allergies. The staff couldn't have been friendlier.
Just love this restaurant. Cozy & friendly. Owner constantly has an eye on everything to make sure you’re taken care of and happy makes you feel special. Food is delicious and plentiful.
Food is always good.
Table was close to the front door and near the hostess podium. Every time customers came in and left we all got a cold blast of air. Needed to wear my coat at the table. The service was average. Felt like we were being rushed through our meal. Food was very salty .
Great food & great atmosphere! Will go back!
Everything was excellent
We went for an early dinner. Service was great as was the food. Everyone was friendly, even the valet.
Great prix-fixe lunch and food is outstanding. Excellent salads. Salmon was fabulous, perfectly grilled, and chicken parmigiana was very well prepared. Desserts were varied and delicious.
Good local spot.
This was the 2nd time I've been to this restaurant in the last 5 weeks. This time I went on a weeknight and ordered from the pre-fix menu. There were many choices - couldn't make up my mind. Finally I decided on zucchini soup, chicken franchaise, and cheesecake for dessert. OMG - the soup was one of the best I've ever had (I've never had zucchini soup before and this was amazing!) and the portions were huge! My husband loved his meal too- I don't remember what type of soup he ordered but he had the sea bass for his meal and cheesecake for dessert. He said everything was delicious! The price was extremely reasonable too. Our experience was amazing - from the valet, to the hostess, to our incredible waiter, to the chef preparing such delicious food! We had a great time and decided this is our new favorite restaurant. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend!
Always great food and service
Great veal parmigiana
Only one slight problem. I received an email about a promotion as well as a post on Facebook. No one
was aware of it so they had to call the marketing manager. It's still posted on Facebook.
The owner was kind enough to honor it but if it isn't legit it should be deleted.
We were invited by Uncle Bacalas to participate in a special offer on National Spaghetti Day. The food was great. We both had spaghetti and meatballs and shared the wonderful Apple Salad.
Everything was great, and delicious
But they lost one of two Giftcards ($100 GiftCard )I gave the waiter, I I didn’t even get a discount or consideration for their mistake
Our family had our New Year's Day dinner at Uncle Bacala. The food was delicious and the service was remarkable. The drinks made us all happy. Thank you and continued success in 2020.
I have eaten here for many years, with family and friends, and have never been disappointed with the food or service. This is a great restaurant on all levels. Peter makes you feel right at home! And what can be better than to end the evening with cotton candy for the table
Had another great experience at Uncle Bacalas. The food was top notch and the service was excellent as always. Thank you!
Love the restaurant!
We were celebrating my friend’s birthday. Our waitress Erin was terrific; she was sweet, courteous, and very helpful. Peter, as always, was the BEST!
Thank you for the opportunity.
We have enjoyed dining at Uncle Bacala's since Peter opened 15 years ago. The food is authentic and always delicious. This time I had the "Sunday Gravy" which is pasta and tomato sauce with meatballs and sausage. It reminds me of Sunday dinner at Grandma's 60 years ago. Although, of course, no one makes a sauce as good as Grandma except my mother! The sauce at Uncle Bacala's was very good. Kathryn had pasta with seafood and was very happy with her selection. We shared a piece of chocolate cake for desert. Looking forward to our next visit.
Fantastic food as always. Great service and atmosphere.
Food was delicious and prices very reasonable. Will definitely be back in the near future!
Great food and drink.
Holiday spirit was evident.
Mom felt special celebrating her birthday.
celebrated a birthday with 5 of my friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. 4 of our 6 had never been before and they loved it!!
Good food, excellent waiter
Food was great as always!
Another fantastic meal at Uncle Bacalas!!! They consistently knock it out of the ballpark. Try the Spaghetti Frutti di Mare. You will not be disappointed!
Always great food, very good service, and friendly staff.
Everything was absolutely delicious!!
Once again a wonderful meal great service
Another amazing dinner with family. Conistently excellent!
Service was exceptional 😍
It was a wonderful dining experience. Delicious food and plentiful. Friendly and excellent service. Our friends from Westchester came to dine with us and they were not disappointed.
The overall service was great. The waiter was on top of everything and kept making sure we had plenty of water and asked us how our meals were.
Great "local" place. Delicious home-made food. Very cozy, good for conversation.
Simply amazing!!!! From the soup to the dinner !! Great service and overall experience !!
The food was very good. We went on a Saturday night and had a reservation. We waited about 25 minutes to be seated. While the hostess suggested we have a “seat” in the bar, the bar area was very crowded and there were no seats. On December we were seated at our table, everything was fine, and as I said, the food was very good. I would also point out that there were many very large parties, which is not unusual. However, the tables are very close and this contributes to the noise level. Not the place to go for conversation. The summertime actually is better because of outdoor seating.
There was a long wait even though we had reservations, but the food and great service made up for it! Would definitely recommend.
