The Daughter's Place

My understanding is that the daughter of the owner of Manducati's Rustica is the owner of this location also in the LIC area and the restaurant and food are just as good if not better. Wine seemed a little pricy but rest of meal was good value for the portions. My wife had fettuccini Bolognese and... read more

genuinely Italian food, the owner and chef is an Italian lady, pizzas are like at the old country, service is excellent and prices are moderate, a little off the beaten track, and you can visit the Pepsi sign (3 blocks away on the River) for stunning views of New York skyline

It's not what it used to be. But still good. I have been there so many times, and now there are many more local places to choose from. Its an old time favorite.

Excellent Italian food in an out-of-the-way location. Look up 'unprepossessing' and you'll find a picture of this place, but once inside, the whole atmosphere changes. Everything we had was very good (other than the bread they served, which was ordinary). Service was very friendly, and the owner and his son were both there and checked to be sure we were... More

I always drove by this restaurant but never tried it until I was invited to a bday party. The food was amazing. Several appetizers were passed around the table... Eggplant rollatini, calamari, stuffed mushrooms.. All excellent. I had shrimp scampi for my entree which was great. The shrimp were large and tender, very fresh. The service was excellent and atmosphere... More

I always drove past Manducati's on my way home and finally decided to try it. The decor, menu and food were all very old school and cozy and have probably not been updated in ages- which makes it very charming. The food was very good. The selections were basic Italian. The staff was very friendly. We've since been back and... More

My colleague who lives in Westchester recommended this place. I ordered the scungilli with marinara sauce and it tasted fine. My brother-in-law ordered the veal marsala and one can taste too much wine on the top. My sister-in-law had the veal parmigiana and the meat was very tough and tasted as if the meat was kept for a long time.... More

My wife and I have accidentally found this place, from the outside it looks like a dingy established but as soon as you enter you know this is going to be great. We have eaten here twice and both times have been very good, highly recommend the carbonara.

Manducatis is an old school family run mostly southern Italian restaurant in Long Island City. A quick hop over the Edward Koch Queensboro bridge and you can enjoy classical Italian cooking (Grandma Ida is in the kitchen) that is exactly how it should be. The food and service is excellent and there is lots of atmosphere as well. We are... More

We've been coming here for quite some time. This is a family owned and run restaurant that we love. Mamma is in the kitchen and she really knows how to cook. It's all good.
