I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years and always enjoyed the food. Went this evening with my husband and daughter to celebrate my birthday and it was a big letdown. I noticed that the wait staff was completely different except for one person so do not know if there has been a change in ownership. We... More

We have had many dinners in the Family Restaurant and have always left satisfied - we love their veal pizzaiola and, last time we went there and saw that the menu no longer included this dish, we asked and they made it for us and it was as delicious as always. A very welcoming place, with great Italian fare.

Don't go expecting a fancy, modern dining experience and you'll be very happy. The Family Restaurant serves classic Italian restaurant fare and pizza, and the food is far better than average, and significantly better than their neighborhood competitor, Portofino. The fish dishes are outstanding, and the service is warm. It's not fancy, but it's a step above most neighborhood Italian... More

They have great hours for the area, a very good selection of items on menu, some of my favorites are the Soups, early dinner hours are best as they can get watered down... Fried artichokes for an appetizer are lightly battered and have a fresh taste... The fish and veal dishes are very good with a variety of sauces. Meals... More

Our dinner was a lovely experience, from the attentive wait staff to the final cup of espresso. Each one of us loved the dish we selected, with special praise for the orechiette with broccoli rabe and sweet Italian sausage. Outstanding flavors, very complex. Also rave reviews for the salmon (two huge fillets) and the veal medallions. Exquisite desserts included a... More

We have dinner here as much as possible. Rosa makes you feel like family from the moment you walk in the door. She makes sure you get seated and checks on you throughout the meal to make sure everything is ok. The garden salad has the best salad dressing. I usually get the chicken nicolia. Chicken breast with broccoli rabe... More

Had lunch here for a family gathering, I couldn't have been more pleased. The wait staff were very attentive, food was delicious and was served hot and promptly. I hadn't been here in years, and now that I went back I'm really looking forward to visiting again.

We arrived (three friends) late on a friday night beyond their peak time - we were served quickly, ordered salads and their spagetti bolognese - I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary and got a very complex flavoured bolognese, rich and creamy, fresh tasting and terrific. One of my friends ordered an appetizer she didn't like and they didn't charge us -... More

The reviews in the past were right on. Three years later, a change of chefs, management, or something I'm not aware of, makes this Italian restaurant in Forest Hills (where you have a lot of quality places to choose from), a more than average dining experience. The service was always right there for you and the food was prepared nicely.... More
