LIC's top Italian restaurant, superb service standards and a excellent range of home produced authentic Italian dishes. The wine list is reasonably priced, even if some of the main dishes are getting a bit pricey, but for this atmosphere and quality of service who cares!

There is metered parking near the restaurant however tough to get. It depends when you go. Also there is free parking on nearby streets but again tough to get but can get it if you are lucky.

You are in Manhattan and Manetta's is in Queens only reachable by subway ride. As you are in Dumont you may want to stay closer say Coppola's which is on Third Avenue and 28th street and is walkable.
