Best italian restaurant in Astoria! Warm service, attentive but not too much. wine selections are great! meal selections are amazing. we ordered pizza with truffle , pasta with truffle, and bottles of wines along with some appetizers including mozzarella and tomato. ALL were amazing! Definitely recommend for anyone to try this place. It is not cheap but not expensive.

I have been coming here for years and years and years! This place never disappoints. It is by far one of my favorite Italian restaurants. Tastes just like Nonna cooks in Italy.

Wanted to introduce my special lady to an old friend. Picked this place specifically because I had eaten here before. I enjoy hearing the waiters sound off the list of specials. I can barely keep up but I can always zone in on something. Tonight was a spicy buffalo sausage. The meal wine and company made for a perfect evening.... More
