Whether you order an item off the menu, or one of the numerous specials listed by the excellent wait staff, you can always expect a great meal, and an enjoyable experience. One of the best things is that even on a crowded Saturday night, you can actually enjoy a conversation with your dining companions. We brought out of towners here... More

Ok, So GrandMa passed away a while ago but Chef Rocco Saccramone stole her Cookbook and is cooking from it (and perfecting her recipes!!) Trattoria L'incontro is fine dining without the cost or the snootiness of a NYC restaurant. It has the personality of a neighborhood place but kick it up about 100 pegs. It's focus is also a little... More

Wow. You really just made my day! I love hearing what it is you appreciate about our place -- the freshness of our Italian ingrediants, the way we structure our specials and house menu, and our neighborhood attitude. So much of our personality is a reflection of those who join us for dinner, and I want to thank you for... More

This restaurant is a neighborhood gem in Astoria. The menu is offers many different and unique dishes. Excellent wine list and bar. The atmosphere allows for great conversation with your table mates. Well worth the short train or Uber ride from the city. If you have the opportunity, a must try.

In a town where ethnic restaurants abound, each must work especially hard to gain your confidence and your dining dollar. Give credit to Trattoria L'Incontro for trying harder. Astoria is home to multiple nationalities and multiple income levels. Young people have flocked here to be close to Manhattan at a much lower cost. They bring with them their energy, eclectic...

I must say, your review deserves a similar credit for going the extra mile, Frank. I really appreciate your detailed, eloquent reflection on your night with us. I'm glad to hear you went with Bildi's suggestion adding the arugula to your swordfish -- it's excellent. Thanks again for stopping by -- I'm looking forward to seeing you in again soon!... More

Impressive & long list of specials that really aim to please. Consistently good service and quality of food. However, I have found that the portions of fish tend to be small. Although we tend to order more unusual dishes, the chicken parmesan is really excellent.

This is the best Italian restaurant you will find anywhere in NYC. The food is amazing the service is top notch, and chef/ Rico Sacramone visits each table during your dinner service. I can't possibly be more impressed.

Yes, this is where you want to go in Queens for the real thing. Rocco and his team really know how to make you feel good. I highly recommend the Pappardelle with rabbit ragu' and the affogato for dessert. Not the most elegant or luxurious place in NY, but who cares!! The food is super and Rocco is one the... More
