Description: Located on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills, an upcoming Restaurant row is La Vigna Restaurant featuring Chef/Owner Giuseppe Vitale’s masterful interpretation of Italian cuisine. With the walls painted in the warm golden tones of an Italian villa and huge wood framed mirrors which expand the intimate space, it is perfect for smaller dinner parties. La Vigna also features a beautiful wooden bar with an excellent selection of Italian and Californian wines. Chef Vitale, born in Naples, was a chef for Lidia Bastianich for many years, learning the mastery of her techniques at Felidia, Becco and her original location in Forest Hills, Bona Via. La Vigna's cuisine combines the ingredients of traditional Italian home cooking with a sophisticated touch haute cuisine.

Were taken here by locals, and it did not disappoint. Good variety on the menu and several specials. Had the raviolis and chicken breast and both were excellent. Service was a little spotty although in fairness it was quite busy. Deserts were also very good. Prices are a little steep but the food was very good.

Food is head and shoulders above all local competition. Home made cavitini is to die for! Scarpariello (sp?) Is as good as it gets.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants you can find in Forest Hills. The food is fresh, tasty and plentiful. A great place to enjoy a great meal.

Little Italian restaurant that's good for a romantic dinner. Not the friendliest wait staff and the prices are a bit high for entrees but the food is well prepared. The pollo marsala was very good, the risotto ammiraglio is delicious and their Ceasar salad is crisp and lite. One of the better Italian spots on Metropolitan Ave.
