Get the Nutella pie!

OK - I'm not sure of all the details but this place has some type of oven that they imported from Italy that apparently makes their pizza better. Not sure of the details - but let's go with it!

Tufino is the by far the best Italian restaurant in Astoria, easily rising above all the others who claim to have authentic Italian cuisine. Many places in Astoria and even in NYC claim to have authentic Italian cuisine and pizza. Many of them fail terribly, and offer some horrible replicas of what real Italian should be. The traditional brick oven... More

This place has delicious pizza and pasta! Quick service, really nice ambience and friendly service. We love the Napoli style of pizza so it was perfect. Good place to order a few dishes, share and not break the bank but be totally satisfied after! Headed to Martha's Country Bakery for Dessert literally across the street and it was the perfect...

To start we had Nonna's meatballs and Panzarotti (potato croquettes with cheese and ham) - superb. We had two different pizzas and Caesar's salad. Everything was delicious - especially the starters which at first the kids didn't like the look of ... until they tatsed it ... and then they wanted more! Throughly recommend - top notch authentic Italian restaurant... More

With the well known pizza places in the city commanding at least an hour wait even on a weekday, I haev begun braching out into other neighborhoods in search of the next best pizza place. Tufino makes a great pie and I haven't experienced a wait (maybe I am lucky) to be seated. A plus in my book. They make... More

The service was fast and attentive. The food choices were clearly explained and the amount of food appropriate for price. The pizza was very tasty and well cooked. The vegetables were flavored to perfection and the meat slices also were delicious.

This was my first time here and maybe I should wait to go again for a more "compete" experience. As it was, our experience was a bit all over the place. The service is excellent and the ambiance quite pleasant, although the room is a bit small. As for the food. The salad was very good; the prosciutto and mozzarella... More

I have been here a few times and each time the food has tasted exactly the same. The pizza is wonderful and there are numerous options to choose from for toppings. The sauce is light and just the right amount. As someone mentioned before, the crust is wonderful! The service staff is very friendly and attentive. If you have a... More

I prefer to not write a review based on only 1 experience - anyone can have a bad day, or get lucky & have a good 1 - but this visit was impressive enough to warrant an exception. On a hot July early afternoon my wife & I went to "Tufino" in Astoria, N.Y., where they claim to serve traditional... More
