It's 98 years of business, family and a lot in between that make this restaurant more than just a place to eat. If our walls could talk and write a book no doubt it would be a top seller! We have created and continue to create memories for so many as you can see on TLC's The Long Island Medium that aired Sunday, March 8th 2015.
It was a great beginning of a new season for Theresa and Larry to celebrate and for them to return to Puglia where they had their first date 30 years ago!
There's something special about Puglia that we think everyone should experience!
We were so thrilled to have Theresa and Larry Caputo enjoy some time at Puglia and hope they will return soon! Happy Anniversary!
