Escape to Greece at Vilai. Glen Cove's newest Greek Mediterranean Seafood restaurant, located just steps away from the LIRR. Upon arrival you are greeted and welcomed "like family" by the owner and staff. Featuring an extensive winelist, creamy whipped spreads, succulent octopus, grilled fresh whole fish and the tenderest baby lamb shops are truly divine.
