My wife and I were visiting family and friends in Brooklyn and Queens. We were told that a botique hotel the Marco in Flushing was both new and reasonable. I will write later about the hotel but the adjacent restaurant Magna was simply great. My wife and I ate dinner there on the night we arrived at the hotel and... More

What a great find! The food was to die for but the best part was the excellent service provided by our waiter fabio. Straight from Italy himself he was knowledgeable about the menu and extremely attentive to detail. We will definitely go back!!!!!

This place is a nice Italian restaurant. The staff is very nice and they take good care of the customers. It is a great place to hang out and eat your friends. This is the only Italian restaurant in flushing if you get tired of Asian food. It is well worth the trip.

Stopped in for a drink and some appetizers, since we were staying at the Hotel next door. Our Bartender/server name was Fabio. He was extraordinarily attentive and very kind and polite. He chatted with us about the town for a while, however as soon as another patron walked in he was hurrying off to care for them. He was excellent... More

This is a fine example of an Italian-American trattoria. Reasonably priced (and 10% off for guests of the attached Hotel Marco). Food is of high quality and service is excellent. Top tip: for many diners, the size of the salad offerings will make them a meal in themselves. (Sizes of the mains are more standard.) Decor pleasant but by no... More

After having such a poor experience with the hotel customer service, we decided to take our chances and dine at the Magna located inside the Marco LaGuardia. "Fabio" was fabulous! The service was outstanding and the food was some of the best Italian food we've ever had. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. I will never, ever stay... More

We stayed a the Marco LaGuardia hotel, which houses the Magna restaurant. The breakfast buffet is offered free to guests only if the room is booked directly through the hotel (i.e. if you use Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz et al you won't get it free) Also, it's only free for 2 adults per room and kids 6 + under. Otherwise it's... More

We came in for a quick dinner after a day at the queens zoo, service was prompt and friendly. Our food was fresh and delicious, my salmon was moist and tender (in ny you don't really get seafood that fresh and affordable), my cousin had the risotto and her shellfish was not only cleaned well (no sand or grit) but...

If the waiter hadn't said he would change the glass of wine but we would have to pay for it. After finding another Italian restaurant was closed, we found Magna as #2 on Tripadvisor while traveling back toward our hotel. Called and found we could get a table. Upon arriving our waiter appeared with a wonderful accent and seemed polished.... More

Went there today to meet an aunt who was celebrating her birthday - the staff sang happy birthday and brought out a lovely tiramisu for the occasion and no charge for it . Thanks Barbara for you great hospitality which was matched only by the great food! Philip and Fiona
