I have been going to this family-owned restaurant for years. The food is consistently good, especially their pasta dishes. They have a reasonable prix fixe and their wine selections, especially their changing recommendations, are always good. The bartender knows my pre-dinner drink (a Rob Roy) and starts making it when I walk in. The staff is friendly as well as efficient. They have a large crowd of regulars and I love going there. The fact that it is only a block and a half from me doesn't hurt at all.

Our hotel concierge advised us to go to this restaurant. It was Sunday night before Thanksgiving and we were a bit late getting to Brooklyn. It was a cozy, Italian restaurant with white tablecloths and fresh flowers. The food and service was some of the best we've experienced. This restaurant had an energy, a heartbeat. The food was beautifully prepared and presented (someone in the kitchen REALLY cares about the food). The service was prompt, polite and attentive. If we had stayed another night in New York, we would have eaten at Queen again!

This is a very nice comfortable dining experience in Brooklyn on Court Street. Our family went and everyone enjoyed themselves. It it easy and it has a very extensive menu of daily specials and regular offerings.

We had the Saltimbocca veal (B+) --it is four pieces of thin, flavorful veal with prosciutto on top -- my only comment is the sauce is a tad too rich. The spaghetti bolognese (A) was a very large portion and very well received. The garlic shrimp on linguine (B+) was also plentiful. The wine list is good but the real distinction was --they know how to do bread --a lot and a five selection choice on one plate.

The staff is attentive, pleasant, and authentic Italian. It's not cheap but is affordable and the value you receive is real.

If you are going to the Barclay Center or in the area give Queen a try.

Normally a very quiet where you can actually speak to each other. They have always maintained freshly cooked food... We have been going for 40 years and the food remains excellent.
