Volpe ristorante is located in Woodbury, Long Island at the Fox Hollow Inn. Fox Hollow, owned and managed by the Scotto family has always been a major presence in the Long Island catering/restaurant world. and Volpe is their latest and most glamourous gourmet italian restaurant .
Upon entering the Fox Hollow grounds at night , we were enveloped in the theatrical lights adorning the walls and trees at the entrance to Fox Hollow, as well as the wondrous colors of the flowers and greenery surrounding the venue. We took an elevator to the second floor where we entered the beautiful and exciting new Volpe restaurant.We were seated at a window table overlooking a flower filled courtyard with outdoor seating for dining and catering. The views, and the ambiance was a delight to the senses and a great way to begin a night of culinary gems.
We began our meal with:
A large plate of caprese- homemade mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil,
a large jumbo shrimp cocktail artistically arranged around a tangy and flavor filled cocktail sauce.. Both delicious and a perfect introduction to our meal.
Prior to our entrees we thoroughly enjoyed a large classic caesar salad made with lots of parmesan cheese, evo, anchovies, and crisp romaine lettuce.
The Dining room was filled with an upscale group of long island diners who also enjoyed the room, music and elegant ambiance.
It was now time to enjoy our entrees:
A Volpe “Surf and Turf” a large lobster tail and a grilled filet mignon. Served and prepared perfectly and served with vegetables.
A Colorado Rack of Lamb- Herb dijon crusted – An impressive plate filled with beautifully prepared sizzling hot chops and oven roasted asparagus, Delicious and more than enough for a meal the next day.
We also sampled a dish of pan roasted mushrooms and a sampling of lobster risotto al forno made with fresh lobster chunks, scallions, cherry tomatoes, and fresh baked bread crust. Loved the mushrooms…
For dessert we had coconut sorbet, a perfectly sweet way to end a great meal.
Kudos to Gennaro, and his highly professional and superb wait staff. Congratulations to the Scotto family for creating another fabulous dining venue on the North Shore of Long Island. Visited June 2014
