Found this place on yelp in Astoria. The owner/manager of the restaurant was the one who greeted us and got us seated. We had a reservation, but I think we could get a table even if we walked in on that Sunday afternoon. Once seated, we ordered bread. The bread was room temperature and hence we asked the server to...

Tucked almost under the subway tracks at the end of the W and N line in Astoria. Easy to miss the orange front among all the Greek restaurants and shops. Make the effort to go, and your reward is delicious Italian food at prices that will keep you coming back. Small, narrow space, but did not feel crowded. Service like... More

Enjoyed an evening with friends and great food. I had the duck meatballs with brandy that was outstanding. Looking forward to going again. Service was awesome. We closed the place at 11:00pm? Thanks for a fun experience.

We went on a BYOB night (happens once a week!) for dinner and had duck meat balls, pasta bolognese and ribs. All of the food was delicious and prepared with love. Furthermore the portions of the food are BIG just the way it has to be! The prices are reasonable and the interior design is awesome, check out the reviews... More

We took our daughter here for a fabulous birthday dinner. The food was reminiscent of some of the great dishes we have enjoyed on our trips to Italy! We could tell that the chef was really thoughtful in preparing creative, delicious dishes. There were three vegetarians among us and we were happy to discover many entrees that we could enjoy....

We ate here at the recommendation of our daughter. Very narrow quaint restaurant with family hospitality. Wonderful menu, many choices of fresh pasta dishes. Will go back again and again.

Unique selection of foods. They offer duck meatballs and other rare kind of foods. We have gone multiple times with different people and everyone left very satisfied with the food. Good chicken parmigiana and raviolis

Fun night with friends in this local, family-owned restaurant in Astoria. Great pasta and antipasti. We chatted up the owner who happily told us about his curing process for salumi and proscuitto. We left happy. Good sized portions. Don't leave without ordering the tiramisu!!!

My husband and I were looking for places to eat on late Sunday evening and we discovered this crown jewel of Astoria – Ditmars Blvd. It is a small homestyle Italian cooking restaurant. I was overwhelm by the different variety of pasta and not sure what to get. After discussion, we decided to order Prosciutto diParma, Pasta diCastagna and Steak... More
