La famiglia, Italian for “the family.” At no place is family more evident than here at Elisa’s Restaurant. There is an undeniable feeling from the moment you walk through the door that you have come home. The Telese family would have it no other way.
Elisa’s has been a family-run restaurant for more than a decade. Brothers Rocky and Paolo Telese learned all that they know about treating, and feeding, their guests like family from their parents, Anthony and Elisa (restaurateurs for more than three decades). And the family atmosphere has done well for them – just ask their loyal customers who return time and time again. Or you could ask their faithful staff, as most of them have been around from the get-go.
The authentic Italian cuisine at Elisa’s is prepared by Chef Paolo. Schooled at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, Chef Paolo honed his artistry working throughout Europe, making stops in Switzerland, Rome, and France. The menu created by Chef Paolo ranges from traditional, old-world Italian cuisine to uniquely imaginative plates you’ll find only at Elisa’s.
The Telese family is first-generation Italian-American, with its roots in Naples and Abruzzi. At Elisa’s, you get all that Italian heritage right here on Long Island. Coming together to create one extraordinary dining experience that’s second-to-none. We thank you for joining us, and we look forward to your next visit. Don’t be a stranger.
