About Us

Friendlier is the essence of a family restaurant. Originally opened in 1976 by Tony Vinceslao and Mario Devilla from Bari, Italy. The business continues today with enthusiasm as Tony's son, Vito, a Sommelier embraces the business with passion. Ensuring each dish is prepared with the freshest produce, ingredients and extra virgin olive oil. Celebrating 36 years in the same location; Friendlier of Woodmere, NY accomplishes ongoing delights for its patrons providing both a health conscious and classic Italian menu. Upon the 1991 addition of the dining room, Friendlier offers the opportunity to enjoy a casual, quiet ambiance, fine viticulture and always a special culinary experience. From familiar and efficient service, Friendlier is ideal for any occasion including private parties. Most importantly, please prepare to be treated like family.
