Staff is SO friendly and the food is so fresh and delicious. The wines on tap are good and they will let you sample any of them. Also the hype behind the sweet baby Jesus cake is 100% accurate
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 :-)
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.
no matter what it takes to get here, do it. the menu is fresh yet hearty, and sources local produce. Prices are cheap and owner is a sweetheart. We stayed well past closing and he gave us free dessert
Place has a nice atmosphere. Our server was very accommodating and pleasant. I enjoyed their kale pizza and wine. Although their cabernet was pricy, i think my company enjoyed it nonetheless.
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!
Inspired by Italy and the local greenmarket, here, the emphasis is entirely on local: the produce comes from the Brooklyn Grange, and the walls are a gallery for local artists. Come for the wine tap.
Class act all the way. Hands down best restaurant in NY! Always impressed and always feel the love. Amazing food, superb owners and employees, and beautiful ambiance. Just say YES!
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.
The Rib-eye was amongst the best I've ever had. Truffle-potato pizza, slow braised meatballs & hangover pizza. Pretty much can't go wrong. They know how to do it right here.
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!
Go to Vesta. Order the Baby Jesus cake -- super sweet and moist, with unsweetened whipped cream to calm your taste buds. Die happy. Really, it gets no better than this.
Leave Manhattan for the best Italian in the boroughs. Share the "Quacker" pizza with duck, the award winning braised meatballs, and the signature Baby Jesus cake.
This is my fave restaurant in Astoria, if not all of NYC. Warm, wonderful ownership and staff and not to mention amazing seasonal and local food.
Fresh, home made Italian food with wine on TAP! Pastas are all great, but the pizzas are really where it's at. Thin, crispy and great ingredients.
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.
if you like REAL italian food, steer clear of their lasagna. everything else there is prepared to perfection and they use local organic ingredients.
Great Italian restaurant hidden in Astoria. Recommend the Summer Salad, Lasagna, and Orecchiette. And end the meal with the Baby Jesus cake.
Unlike any other place in the neighborhood. Great locally sourced food, local wine from the barrel, great staff. Can't recommend it enough.
The hangover pizza is amazing! Eat if you're sharing with friends (or else you'll be taking home 3/4 of a pizza). 🍕
Ridiculously small menu (for dinner). The wine on tap is pretty cool. My family and I all got cramps afterwards though...
The house Red on tap is awesome. A little funky (a good thing) and smooth. Also kind of a bargain for $7.
This place makes me miss Astoria...I've never had a bad meal here, the wines are all amazing and the service top-notch!
Cozy and romantic spot in the neighborhood. Great value- the menu is always rotating because it's seasonal.
Sea bass, crunchy skin and flavorful inside. Finish off with the Baby Jesus. Man it's good
I haven't been yet, but I will order entrees as appetizers and apps for entrees. but, dessert before all of that.
The potato pizza is beyond amazing. The staff is very attentive and nice. I'll be going back many times.
Go to Vesta for Sunday brunch after drinking one too many. Order the hangover pizza -- spicy tomato sauce, eggs, and breakfast meats on a perfectly thin crust. Feel better!
Love this place! Fabulous chef wonderful menu...David, the manager he knows his stuff about wine.
when given the choice between a tasting menu or a la carte items, always go for the a la carte.
Always a great selection of wines and food. I've never gone wrong with anything on the menu ever.
Mussels app was phenomenal and kale pizza, simply outstanding, not to mention the cavatelli mmmmm
L'Italiano is absolutely amazing! Don't forget to order the Baby Jesus after, you'll definitely flip for it!
The house Red wine by Raphael vineyards in LI was really good. Dry and and good blend.
Come not only for the delicious food, but probably the best music selection in Astoria.
Mussels appetizer is fresh, delicious & hearty.
The lasagna 6 hour meat ragu is probably the best I have had in a long time!
Delicious wine on tap and some of the best thin crust margarita pizza ever.
Wine on tap is amazing and fun. Pizza is really good and cheep.
Watermelon and radish salad. Kale pesto. Wine on tap. All my favorite things that I never knew existed.
Amazing service!! Wine on tap is a treat. Baby Jesus cake is a must!!
Everything! Bring your dates here. This place is awesome!
They forgot about us and the service was sloppy. The food wasn't too bad when it finally arrived.
