Welcome to Il Felice! A Fine Italian Restaurant Serving Northern Italian Cuisine located in the heart of
Seaford, New York.

Owner and Head Chef, Felice, came to America from Croatia more than 30 years ago to begin his restaurant venture in New York. Starting his career as a cook in an Italian eatery in Manhattan and an eventual promotion as Head Chef, Felice gained the experience of managing his very own kitchen.

In 1986, Felice became the proud owner of his own establishment in Woodside, Queens. With an emphasis on warm, friendly service and a relaxing dining experience, he and his family have been stimulating palates and satisfying appetites for over 22 years! In 2008, Felice and family relocated to Seaford, Long Island where they renovated the former 'Brown Osprey' into a warm, relaxing and friendly location now proudly called 'Il Felice.'

Although excellent service and an inviting atmosphere is still our focus, we have made many additions and updates to our previous menu. Il Felice always offers a wide selection of pasta, chicken and veal, as well as succulent desserts, fine wine and specialty cocktails.

Il Felice accommodates parties of up to 100 people and is an ideal setting for birthdays, business meetings, anniversaries, showers, communions, confirmations, engagements, graduations and rehearsal dinners.

We greatly appreciate and value each and every one of our customers and encourage you and your family to come share a meal with ours!


Newsday: Il Felice Review

The Italian-continental menu at this friendly spot highlights irony-free retro. But you wouldn't expect something either a bit brash or a trace bold at the address occupied for decades by The Brown Osprey, an eatery that perfected dulling the cutting edge. Il Felice definitely improves the mood and the food. The place has been renovated and brightened up, but in neutral hues, save for the paintings of Venice. The patient, earnest staff works hard to satisfy regular inhabitants of the Osprey's nest, as well as diners simply surprised at finding another restaurant on the premises. Read More >>

Long Island Press: Il Felice Review

There is truly something great about dining at an Italian restaurant that is owned and operated by the chef—such as IL Felice (Fe-Lee-Che) Ristorante in Seaford, the same owner as the IL Felice Ristorante of Long Island City that is known for quality dining since 1986. Long Island is benefitting from the restaurant’s relocation to Seaford in the former Brown Osprey location.  Read More >>
