Although this restaurant is expensive for the Astoria neighborhood, it would be so much more pricey in Manhattan! The menu is extensive, and I would recommend listening to the night's specials before even opening it--there are often so many, you can tell the server to just tell you the categories you are interested in...Reserve a table on weekends, but during...

Appetizers 2 large meatballs and scarola alla brace, for the main course gnocchi di ricotta and spinach ravioli everything was prepared to absolute perfection! We recommend a bottle of the Montepuciano Torre Migli at $39.00.

Amazing restaurant just minutes from La Guardia. Stopped for lunch on way to Manhattan and really glad we did. Amazing service and fantastic food. Specials selection is almost overwhelming. Don't miss the New York Italian gem!

I'm a "super taster" which means I can taste the smaller flavors within a food. I had their Lasagna and every bite was a perfect blend of cheese, noodle, spices, and meats. If I could have it every night, I would! Nothing pre-packaged, pre-measured here except the ingredients to make up their delicious food. This is a MUST EAT here... More

Initially went for restaurant week but was told it was only for lunch- yet that was not noted in the NYC Guide. We enjoyed our food but we needed to wait for our table and then were seated by the glass doors, near the waiters iPad area. Not a good move for first time visitors. Since we were hungry I... More
