Loved it! Went in as a walk in, no wait, not crowded, we felt comfortable with the distance to other tables. Food was outstanding, delicious. I had the Salmon my friend had the Bronzino. Service was awesome, everyone was nice. Parking was a bit difficult but that is expected because of the area. Temperature checks at the door which is good to see.

Fabulous, classic Italian-American food. Great value. The food and service are outstanding. Great for our large group. Every dish from start to finish was superb. Bring your appetite, and your family, and your friends. One of the best Italian restaurants in New York — not trendy, not “instagrammable” — just great food well-served. A classic. Don’t miss it.

Review

Excellent service. Excellent food!

Review

I haven’t been here in a couple of years but I have to honestly say that I was very happy that I went back ! My family and I were pleased from the moment we walked in the door. The owner welcomed us with a warm greeting the bartender made great cocktails and the waitstaff and the food was top notch. Totally old school and I loved it!!!

Love the old school vibe here. Food is delicious. Osso bucco and the lamb are amazing. The mussels were so good my son ate them for the first time.

Service and food are the best I have ever experienced!

Review

I came here for dinner during an overnight in New York. The place is only about 20 minutes from LaGuardia airport so it was very convenient to get to. I made a reservation but at 7:30 on Tuesday I didn't need one. They weren't busy. The staff was incredibly helpful. The atmosphere and treatment is that of a classic Italian restaurant. Hospitality is a big part of the meal. We were given bruschetta and olives for the table after menus. My water never went under 3/4 full all night. I had the pumpkin ravioli and they were superb. They had a light flavor mostly overwhelmed by the cream sauce, but that sauce was heavenly so it was okay. My mother in law raves about her osso bucco. The place is Spendy, but you can order half portions and that'd make the place much more affordable and you wouldn't go hungry. I didn't finish my full size. I'd recommend when in The area.

Review

Fantastic service with an old world flair. Appetizer was Mussels in red sauce and entree broiled sea scallops delicious. Dessert was Apple strudel was ok. Overall good experience.

Good Italian food with old school vibe. Braised shirt ribs and oysters were delicious. Got lucky with several pea crabs in the blue points.

Review

Ok I'm not gonna count the lackluster service against the restaurant, as it was late on NYE and the manager said they were short staffed. I've lived down the block for the last 5 years, but due to my upbringing I do t just try an Italian place, I feel I need someones recommendation i truly trust before i try. My friend said he had an amazing meal, and I'm glad I decided to wait to try for a special occasion. My girl, two of our closest friends, and I all had an amazing meal. The grilled and fried octopus were excellent warm ups, and the prosciutto di Parma with melon made a great way to start the meal. Quick tip, if you're going for pasta, try 2x half portions so you can try more than 1 dish. The stuffed buco was hands down the winner of the night The chicken and veal dishes were also excellent choices. And while so.e may find the prices a little overwhelming the quality and portions make it forget about the dinero.

What a great place. I was invited to a family dinner here. It's an old time Italian Restaurant with great food. All the waiters are dressed in red vests and are wonderfully friendly and accommodating. The food is first rate with standard menu and specials. The decorum is traditional Italian. Loved it.

If you like Italian come here guys. nice place to eat some italian cusine :)

Food is very delicious. Service is very good. I was making my way home from office and caught the smell of food from outside. My nose got the pat on back from getting me here :D

(Translated by Google) Be careful with your wallet. There is an indicator of $ 3 for this restaurant, it is actually up to what is sold. However, we were unable to consult the price of aperitifs, some dishes were not priced and tips ... Employees were unwelcoming from the start, at the limit of aggression at times. Is this the idea that these people are Italian? As long as we speak of Italians, the food is strangely uneven. The main element is perfectly cooked (squid, meatball, fish, etc ...) But the pasta, but then the pasta .... Surcuit, on the verge of disintegrating, I do not hide that it spoils a little all. Finally I come back on the tips, the American method is difficult to assimilate for us, we still tried to always respect our server and give an amount that seemed right. In this restaurant, as indicated the waiter was aggressive limit and he did not hesitate to moan about the amount of the tips, we left with 10% of the note, he urged 25% ... 25% ... But he did not even deserve the 10%. Flee this restaurant, there is so much more affordable and enjoyable than this move. (Original) Attention à votre portefeuille. Il y a un indicateur de 3 $ pour ce restaurant, c'est effectivement à la hauteur de ce qui y est vendu. Cependant, il nous a été impossible de consulter le prix des apéritifs, certains plats n'avaient pas de prix indiqué et le tips ... Les employés ont été peu accueillant des le départ, à la limite de l'agressivité par moment. Est-ce là l'idée que ces personnes se font des italiens ? Tant que l'on parle d'italiens, la nourriture est étrangement inégale. L'élément principal est parfaitement cuit (encornet, boulette de viande, poisson, etc...) Mais les pates, mais alors les pates .... Surcuit, à la limite de se désagréger, je cache pas que ça gâche un peu l'ensemble. Pour finir je reviens sur le tips, la méthode américaine est difficile à assimiler pour nous, on a tout de même essayé de toujours respecter notre serveur et donner un montant qui semblait juste. Dans ce restaurant, comme indiqué le serveur était limite agressif et il n'a pas hésité a râler sur le montant du tips, on partait avec 10% de la note, il a réclamé avec insistance 25% ... 25% ... Mais il méritait même pas les 10%. Fuyez ce restaurant, il y a tellement plus abordable et agréable que ce bouge.

Review

(Translated by Google) What to say... We ask the map of aperitifs and wines, the waiter tells us that he does not have any but that he has everything. So we order two glass of wine and a whiskey without price ... Bad surprise at the note, the glass of whiskey was $ 30, we could have been warned but good pass again. The waiter then gave us the wine list since we did not want to order a bottle without having the choice ... Map he could have given us at first, but we would have taken a bottle and maybe not the two previous glasses ... nice! The food was good but the overcooked pasta, what we could tell (experience of friends who went to the United States) is their way of cooking pasta. But hey ... it's an italian restaurant! The waiter was a little nervous at the end of the meal when we asked if they had candles for a birthday, they even sang Happy Birthday. At the end, the waiter whom we had left $ 25 of tip despite the events I just mentioned dared to ask for more (he wanted 20% of the bill, or more than $ 50). I know that the United States servers are paid with what is left by customers, but it has already had more than the majority of servers that we have indeed left at least 18% of the score for a good service less good ! (Original) Que dire... Nous demandons la carte des apéritifs et des vins, le serveur nous dit qu'il n'en a pas mais qu'il a de tout. Nous commandons donc deux verre de vins et un whisky sans avoir de prix... Mauvaise surprise lors de la note, le verre de whisky était a 30$, on aurait pu être prévenus mais bon passe encore. Le serveur nous a ensuite donné la carte des vins puisque nous ne souhaitions pas commander une bouteille sans avoir le choix... Carte qu'il aurait pu nous donner au début, mais on aurait pris une bouteille et peut être pas les deux verres précédents... Sympa ! Les plats étaient bons mais les pâtes trop cuites, a ce qu'on a pu nous en dire (expérience d'amis qui sont allés au Etats Unis) c'est leur façon de cuire les pâtes. Mais bon... C'est un restaurant italien ! Le serveur s'est un peu déridé en fin de repas quand nous avons demandé s'ils avaient des bougies pour un anniversaire, ils nous ont même chanté Happy Birthday. A la fin, le serveur a qui nous avions laissé 25 $ de tip malgré les évènements dont je viens de parler a osé demander a avoir plus (il voulait 20% de la note, soit plus de 50$). Je sais bien qu'aux Etat Unis les serveurs sont payés avec ce qui est laissé par les clients, mais il a déjà eu plus que la majorité des serveurs a qu nous avons en effet laissé au moins 18% de la note pour un service bien moins bon !

Review

My wife and family raved about the homemade pasta and my fish was pretty good. However, I cannot give it more than 3 stars because they seemed confused about my celiac's and struggled to make something that was safe for me to eat. Eventually we got there and I did not get sick, but they really should know more about this.

The waiter is terrible and Very rude I received was a high end bill with terrible quality food. I had ordered Scampi Adriatico with pasta and a side of Broccoli Genateé. The shrimp was rubbery and the pasta was tasteless. The broccoli that was given to me was as if they were feeding an animal in a barn

Fantastic authentic Italian restaurant. Great service, wonderful food.

Old school Italian dinners served here Not your " Italian American Italian cuisine ". Go on Wednesday they don't rush you out and you get to enjoy the old school Italian Sunday afternoon meal. Just like Mom's Mom's. Eat Drink and Enjoy the experience. Michael

So warm and friendly....The food is amazing .. Me and my husband love this place.. I would give it more than 5 stars....

Review

very large portions!

Review

Always great and consistent

Review

This is a truly old-school restaurant, where the head waiter will come greet you, and the decor is a throw-back. The food is quite good, and they are really accommodating, so you can order with adjustments from the menu. It's a comfortable space, in that you will not feel crowded with your neighbor. The wait staff are seasoned professionals. The complementary bruscetta and cookies for dessert are on point! My polpetti were sadly a little dry, but my papardelle main was outstanding. My friend loved his branzino.

Review

Always great. Prepare most anything the way you want. Great service & great meal.

Unfortunately, I had taken my mother here for her birthday. I had expected high end italian food but all I received was a high end bill with terrible quality food. I had ordered Scampi Adriatico with pasta and a side of Broccoli Genateé. The shrimp was rubbery and the pasta was tasteless. The broccoli that was given to me was as if they were feeding an animal in a barn. My mother had ordered grilled chicken which had no taste and all that was on the plate was 2 small pieces of chicken. My father had ordered short ribs that tasted stale and the gravy served tasted as if it was heated in a microwave. I am truly sad that for my mother's birthday I had brought her to this place. I do NOT recommend going to this establishment, you will be left with an empty belly and an empty wallet. Truly a horrific experience.

Best Italian restaurant ever

Review

Had metal in my shrimp dish and the guy didn’t even apologize! Stay away from this place-go for pizza instead. This was a disgusting experience and no one even offered us a dessert or an after dinner drink. Some guy came over with a big smile on his face and acted as if nothing happened. Time for this place to disappear! It’s had its run.

Great good, service and owners were fantastic

Good food and bar, in one place, valet parking available.

I live out on Long Island and will be going there often now. The food and service was A+++

Review

We went to this restaurant for my wife's birthday. Little pricey but wanted to celebrate. However when we received our main dish of ravioli, we found an aluminum coil from a washing sponge in our dish. When we called our server he said, "What do you want me to do? It happens when you wash dishes but it's not inside of your food." But I picked it up from inside my wife's ravioli. It was disgusting, but I didn't want to ruin my wife's birthday dinner. When we got our bill, they still charged us for everything. If you want to be a high quality restaurant take responsibility. I still don't understand why they think it's okay to charge their customer for their mistake and carelessness.

Review

Review

We’ve been coming here for years! The food is FANTASTIC, the service has always been friendly and wonderful! The BEST Italian restaurant in New York!!

Review

The location, parking and service were terrific. The food was just alright. We went for lunch so maybe dinner is better.

Review

Must to go place, great Italian restaurant, most authentic you can find in town. The appetizer list is amazing, they serve "tortellini in brodo" a really authentic and regional norther Italian food and the grill octopus is to die for. fresh seafood in the special all the time, great wine list and huge portion (a half portion of past is available and good enough for an adult). If you are in Astoria you need to go.

Review

Review

Very nice Italian restaurant in Astoria, ny. Service was excellent and so was the food

Review

The food is good, but the service not so much. I ordered the primo size. The waiter even asked if I wanted the apetizer size and I confirmed that yes, I wanted the small portion. I was charged for the big size and asked him about it. He argued with me and said that primo is the large size, and the menu was right in front of us saying that primo was the starter size. I would say the food is a 3.5, but the service a 1 for my experience.

You simply cannot score better than a 3 when the lasagna was cold in the middle. That faux paus would rate two stars if not for the welcoming atmosphere and excellent service. Grilled octopus was the highlight. Salad was not worthy of mention. Would give them another shot based on unfulfilled promise...and proximity to LGA.

Review

Review

Service was great, rotating team of very attentive staff, amazing pasta fagioli, entrees were delicious. Only thing keeping this from 5 stars was we had made a reservation and they didn't have a table saved and stuck us on a high traffic aisle next to a rowdy party. Definitely will go back though!

Review

Great service and wonderful food everytime I have been here. PV makes my favorite Italian dish of all time, Buccoloni, osso bucco stuffed tortellini with an osso bucco wine sauce. This dish is worth it alone to make the trip to Astoria if you're visiting NYC. Fantastic Lamb chops and a good wine list as well .
