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

Attended family christening. The day was extremely hot and was disheartened the minute I approached restaurant to see a large fan blowing away. Red flag! Walked in to a very warm room. While mgmt. claimed a/c was on, the room only got hotter as people arrived. They should have warned the hosts before the event, but did not! (to be... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. My wife was cautious about going in because of the storefront but boy are we glad that we did. I had the linguine with little neck clams and it was incredible. My wife got the chicken linguine with pesto and just raved about it. The value for what you get was outstanding!
