Cozy Italian comfort food

This is a lovely local spot that I love for both brunch and dinner. I love the atmosphere- brick wall, big windows- and the food is special but doesn't take itself too seriously. The wine (on tap!) is good, and the fried brussels sprouts and Little Baby Jesus Cake are not to be missed!

We enjoyed a family dinner at Vesta. It's a small neighborhood restaurant that has made a name for its food among the residents in Astoria. The service was very friendly and the staff welcoming. The food was very good. My half chicken was extremely well prepared and tasty. I congratulated the chef on the preparation and tenderness. Outstanding. At the... More

my family & I had dinner here with friends, we had a great time. The food was very good & the atmosphere was cool. The bottled beers were a little pricey, but otherwise it was a great experience.

After a long flight, this restaurant was a lovely surprise. My chicken was delicious and moist. The Brussels sprouts were quite yummy, the egg a creamy touch. They were accommodating to my neice's 22 month child. She enjoyed her pasta very much, as her father is a chef and cooks for her regularly, that is a compliment. The wine we... More

I love that this restaurant is away from the hustle and bustle. That said, because it's in a residential area parking can be an issue. The duck prosciutto was really good. I also enjoyed the bacon and potato pizza. I would love to visit again soon.

Menu is alway changing based on what the local ingredients are available. Almost everything is local, including many of the vegetables grown on roof top gardens.

We ordered cod, squash lasagna, Margherita pizza, blueberry salad, and PEI mussels. The mussels could have been hotter. The salad was the Brooklyn grange green. It was okay. The blueberry salad was much better. The Margherita pizza was thin crust, flavorful and enjoyable. It is a good dish to share. The squash lasagna was very tasty. The cod was also... More

My wife and I went here for an early dinner: 4:30 pm, on a recent Saturday afternoon, after touring the two great nearby sculpture museums with our son and his wife, who live nearby, and who raved about the food. They were right! We started with Chilled English pea soup, spice labneh & olive oil ($8), Baby Beets, beet green... More

Went here with a girlfriend last weekend for dinner. She got the bowl of mussels (which was overflowing and delicious per her), I had the lasagna. The meat sauce was earthy and absolutely tasted homemade. Came perfectly hot and cheesy. Had house wine and their baby Jesus cake, as I cannot resist trying new sweets! It was a date cake... More
