We were visiting some friends in New York and they took us to this restaurant. It was a Thursday night and the place was packed. Service and food was fabulous. We started with stuffed artichoke and it was perfect. The caesar salad was great. I had veal parmigiana and my husband had swordfish which were both delicious. Would definitely go... More

NYC for weekend and met some relatives for lunch. Everything about this restaurant was superb...service, food, wine and atmosphere. A lovely place and a reason to take the train to Astoria!

It's hard for me to give 5 stars to any Italian restaurant as I've been spoiled with Italian food on a daily basis & know whats good, not just because, but because I know.

My husband's 85th birthday turned out just great. We had a wonderful meal with great appetizers and dessert. We come here several times a year with friends and family. The chef Rocco is terrific, walks around the room and chats. Staff is courteous and very friendly with lots of hugs. Their specials are wonderful, don't look at the menu...just order... More

The food is among the best I've eaten in any Italian restaurant. Great chef in the kitchen. The presentation is beautiful and the service is excellent. Staff very courteous and knowledgeable. Everything is tops. I even got my hat that I left there.

This is my second time to eat at this restaurant. The first time I had the signature dish meza luna with a portobello mushroom appetizer. This time I tried the beet salad with tagliarinni with lobster, broccoli rabe, mascorpone and cherry tomatoes. Incredible does not describe the flavors enough. Their pastas are home made. They used mint leaf in the... More

By far the best Italian food this side of the Atlantic. Freshest ingredients. Don't even bother to look at the menu. The long list of specials has something for everyone. Fantastic wine list. Don't skip dessert and coffee.

This is an excellent upscale Italian restaurant in every way. The menu selection is really diverse, but no matter how traditional or novel my dish, it's always come out perfectly prepared and attractively plated. Recipes have very effective combinations of ingredients and flavors. I could dream of the sundried tomato paste for the bread! Even Rocco's (the chef/owner) own olive... More

This place does require a short subway drive from Manhattan, but definitely worth the trip. Make sure you make a reservation, especially on weekends, when the place is packed. The place has a huge variety of classical Italian dishes, many of them are classified as "specials" so do expect the waiter to tell you a very long list. One unique... More

If you find yourself in Astoria make it a point to visit L'incontro. Not only do they have an impressive number of daily specials {which is a miracle that the waiter can remember!} but their wine list is varied and very well priced.
