    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.

    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.

    I go here 17 times a week for a reason. Astoria's best restaurant!!

    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!

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

    Amazing local spot, fantastic service, wine & beer only, and food? Stellar. The potato pancetta pizza, the veal pasta or the egg pasta are among my favorites.

  • Arminda G.

    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.

    Arminda G. · August 25, 2011
  • Bradford C.

    Wonderful food. Friendly staff. Try the house wine blends for a delicious bargain.

    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.

    Marianna · April 7, 2010
  • Felix G.

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

    Get the Limoncello Tiramisu!!!!! It's amazing!!!

    Sean H. · August 13, 2011
  • Laura D.

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

    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.

    Stephen B. · January 6, 2011
  • Michelle C.

    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

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