Where in the world is Ozone Park?

This is an ectopic restaurant - if you're not sure what that means, it means something found unexpectedly out of place. You'd expect D.P.'s to be in Little Italy, but instead it's 5 minutes north of the Belt parkway in Ozone Park. You don't come here to admire the art work or the fancy linen... read more

If you like excellent Italian food this restaurant is hard to beat. You will wait outside till your name is called, once inside it reminds you of a small school cafeteria. The lights are bright and the room is loud, if your looking for atmosphere you are in the wrong place. The only reason you come here is to EAT... More

Food was tasty but it was not easy to get a table. We had to visit an ATM and all of our party had to be together before we could get seated. No menu or wine list, everything is written on a large chalk board on the back wall

If you find yourself laying over near JFK, treat yourself to some of the best Italian you will ever have. Great menu (on the wall). Ample portions, family style. Fresh bread and their own wine and you can't beat the service. I always stay at the Hampton Inn (JFK) and for just $14-$15 you can get a town car to... More

Although it's acceptable Italian food, it's not good enough to go out of your way for. Hit or miss with the wait staff as well. I've been there and the server was on the money. I've also visited and the waiter acted like we were an inconvenience. They flatly refuse to give you olive oil to dip your bread in... More

Be hungry because foods aplenty. A large venue 2 miles from JFK AIRPORT and the RESORTS WORLD CASINO at Aquaduct RACETRACK.Food is served family style and waiters have been there for years and are very friendly.Home made wine is excellent as well as the pasta.Prices are reasonable and parking easy.Only drawback is no credit cards accepted-cash only.

For the non-italian americans out there: this is neapolitan-american food. The preparation of this food is not "simple", it is uncomplicated. And they do it right. Not over garlicked; not overly olive oiled. The baked clams properly little necks; pasta with the shrimp marinara al dente; orders big and priced fairly; service better if you tell don't ask. This would... More
