La Bottega of East Meadow, NY has quickly become a favorite place in town to stop in for a bite to eat. The restaurant gives patrons an authentic taste of Italy with added American flare. The establishment boasts an enjoyable and affordable dining experience that features fresh quality ingredients, expertly prepared and lovingly served meals, making you feel right at home! Owners Louis Neglia and Anthony St. George, first cousins, partnered up and opened this amazing location on Merrick Avenue in October 2014.
There are many details to consider when opening a new restaurant location; from menu, to décor, to Point-of-Sale system. Louis utilizes Bematech hardware for the La Bottega locations in Merrick and Syosset where he is part owner. He was familiar with the value and quality Bematech hardware brought to his businesses which prompted him to contact Michael Bocelli, owner of Long Island POS a local independent Point-of-Sale service and solutions provider and begin planning for the East Meadow location. Louis has worked with Long Island POS previously in his other locations, “Mike is great, he is always prepared to fix any POS issue we have and we trust his recommendations”. Long Island POS installed Bematech’s SB9015F All-in-One POS terminal along with the LV4000 customer display. The SB9015F is an economical choice that is equipped with an industrial computer core which supports a wide range of operating systems. The unit is durable and reliable which makes it perfect for a restaurant environment. The LV4000 is a true flat LCD customer display with compact and ecological design. The monitor can deliver promotional information as well as social media messages right from the internet to the customer.
Joanna, manager of La Bottega East Meadow, says their new system has great reporting features. She is now able to monitor the exact amount of sales coming in right down to the cent. Compared to their older POS, in Merrick and Syosset locations, Louis likes the look and feel of the newer machine, “It is sleek, reliable and compact, perfect for our space”. Louis believes that all employees are more organized now due to the internal reports they are able to run on Bematech hardware.
