Friendly service and outdoor tables in summer are a trademark of this red-sauce Italian restaurant, where children are welcome and the price is right. Portions are large and each entree comes with a salad. Although all the familiar Italian dishes from chicken parmigiana to pizza are here, the fish of the day is recommended. Felice's shares a building with the Lupo family's pizzeria.

One of the funkiest eating spots on the East End. You weave your way past rusting fish tanks, avoid the goats and chickens, pick up soups, sandwiches, or fish and shellfish entrees at a counter, and carry it to tables on a patch of sand overlooking Gardiner's Bay. The restaurant is an offshoot of Multi-Aquaculture Inc., and there's a small shop that sells goods from afar. The tab is modest for most dishes, but more usual Hamptons prices obtain for a seafood medley or grilled striped bass. We've yet to try the swordfish chili or lobster bisque. There's a kids menu, too.

Mary's Marvelous developed a following from day one. There are a few seats in the small, sweet Amagansett shop, but most folks take the goodies out. Muffins, pastries, and scones are popular, as are breakfast egg dishes. For lunch, there are ready-to-go salads, sandwiches, and soups, and panini made to order. Coffee is taken seriously, with espresso and lattes. People say, "If it's from Mary's you know it's good." At press time, the Amagansett shop was thriving, despite a rumor that it had closed.
