    Currently my favorite spot in the neighborhood. Fantastic food, wine and service. Yum.

    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.

    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.

    Everyone isn't kidding about the Baby Jesus cake. It looks like nothing, tastes like everything. We think the secret is dates. ;)

    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!

    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.

    Molto buona. Brunch was unbelievably delizioso, esp the hangover pizza and L'Italiano.

    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.

    Plus a block away from me too!!!

    Dynamite Italian food in Astoria. Wine on tap... better than it sounds.

    Unlike any other place in the neighborhood. Great locally sourced food, local wine from the barrel, great staff. Can't recommend it enough.

    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.

    Go to Vesta and make sure to get the Baby Jesus cake for dessert.

    L'Italiano is absolutely amazing! Don't forget to order the Baby Jesus after, you'll definitely flip for it!

    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.

    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

    Sean Holmes · August 13, 2011
  • Laura W.

    if you like REAL italian food, steer clear of their lasagna. everything else there is prepared to perfection and they use local organic ingredients.

    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
