    Cozy and romantic spot in the neighborhood. Great value- the menu is always rotating because it's seasonal.

    Excellent farm-to-table Italian fare and the perfect neighborhood restaurant in Astoria. The hangover pizza is great for brunch, but no matter when you come, save room for the Baby Jesus cake. Divine.

    They call it the hangover pizza...potato, pancetta, sausage, and eggs sunny side up - it's everything you need to get your head on straight after a night out on the town. Read more

    Bonus points for the $2.50 "shots" of wine that let you taste a few before you settle on the perfect pairing. Read more

    Ridiculously small menu (for dinner). The wine on tap is pretty cool. My family and I all got cramps afterwards though...

    It's nice and tasty!

    Delicious wine on tap and some of the best thin crust margarita pizza ever.

    Kale pizza always! YUM

    Hayley Jones · June 9, 2014
  • Robin B.

    The house Red on tap is awesome. A little funky (a good thing) and smooth. Also kind of a bargain for $7.

    Perfect place to eat when visiting Socrates Park & Noguchi Museum. Fantastic pizzas (Hangover & Kale), dessert (torta del Gesu Cristo), friendly service & a wifi - overall satisfaction :-)

    when given the choice between a tasting menu or a la carte items, always go for the a la carte.

    The baby Jesus cake is so delicious. I ran home to try to make it but it just wasn't the same.

  • Chad M.

    Ashamed to say I've known about this place for years, but never made it down. Best margherita (and pizza in general) in Astoria. Also get the Baby Jesus Cake with a scoop of the same flavor ice cream!

    Chad Marra · June 15, 2013

    This is my favorite restaurant in New York City.

    Baby Jesus, Hangover Pizza, and wine on tap. You pick the order, but you have to do this.

  • CocktailEscapades

    The hangover pizza is amazing! Eat if you're sharing with friends (or else you'll be taking home 3/4 of a pizza). 🍕

    I just felt like my mother made this food. Get the meatballs starter and the chicken sausage pizza!! First time customers who are def coming back.

  • Caridad C.

    The potato pizza is beyond amazing. The staff is very attentive and nice. I'll be going back many times.

  • Christina C.

    Meatballs are totally worth it. The lasagna & cavatappi were both delicious. Leave room for the baby Jesus. It looks simple but tastes awesome. This place is great!

    Amazing service!! Wine on tap is a treat. Baby Jesus cake is a must!!

  • Eric T.

    This place gets better each time. A small, no longer hidden gem. There's always a reason to come for brunch - pancakes, l'italiano, hangover pizza. Service treats regulars as family.

    Eric Tash · November 3, 2012
  • Caitlin G.

    Brussels sprouts are a must have.

    Do not leave without trying....tri-colored cauliflower (with a golden raisin dipping sauce), corn on the cob (sprinkled with grana padano), the orecchiette (with kale pesto and housemade pork sausage) Read more

    Great Italian restaurant hidden in Astoria. Recommend the Summer Salad, Lasagna, and Orecchiette. And end the meal with the Baby Jesus cake.

    Eugene N · August 3, 2012

    Watermelon and radish salad. Kale pesto. Wine on tap. All my favorite things that I never knew existed.
