Trattoria Queen is a tiny little place on the corner of Queens Road and Hollywood. The owner is a Japanese, and the food is an interesting take on Japanese ingredients in Italian cuisine - the wine list is also an interesting blend of Italian wines and sake. The price is a tad high for just a "casual night out" but is appropriate for the food and a great special occasion.
The place is very small, a few tables downstairs and a few tables upstairs. The decor is light colored and fresh, and service is very attentive due to the high server to table ratio.
Food is excellent - we shared an appetizer, a seafood pasta and a duck main course. Food is prepared very well and presentation is also great. The menu changes quite often, so it's worth it to just ask for recent recommendations of your server.
Highlights were the seafood pasta - cooked in a light white wine sauce, full of flavor and not very heavy, and duck, which was incredibly tender and flavorful.
The desserts looked very interesting too - matcha tiramisu! - but we were full and passed on the meal. (We aren't very big eaters, and sharing 3 plates was plenty for us.)
Would definitely come back - especially to save some room for dessert.
