The time has almost finally come – after a long season of being stuck indoors, huddled as far away from the drafty door as possible, we can take to outdoor patios to grab a bite to eat and enjoy a bit of sunshine along with it. Once quarantine is over, we can’t wait to get back to these local eateries and eat al fresco!

Craving both some delicious eats as well as a place where you can relax with a meal and the newly-emerged warm weather? Once our NYS “PAUSE” has been lifted, check out these restaurants near your Alston apartment which feature outdoor patios along with delicious food, great drinks and an ambiance to boot.

Mamma Lombardi’s Restaurant, located at 400 Furrows Rd, Holbrook which is five minutes from your Alston apartment, is a time-tested, family-run Italian spot for classic dishes and pizza in a brick-lined space with a patio.

The Lombardi family has proudly served the Long Island community for 40 years with five different restaurant locations where they have established a respected and reputable name for fine dining and catering. Known for their delicious Neapolitan Italian cuisine, the Lombardi’s bring a little bit of the Old World to Long Island.
