Not your average Italian cooking. Everything looked good on the menu. Two couples, salad, soup and 4 different entrees. Things you don't normally see in your local trattoria. The waiter was VERY helpful. Worth spending a bit more money.

The food and atmosphere are amazing here. As far as "fancy" restaurants go, it's not that bad $$ wise either. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Astoria and therefore NYC since Astoria has the best food in

The food is spot on - specials are always interesting and the meals on menu are great. I'm a big sauce person and it's all fresh and spiced nicely. Extensive wine list. Knowledgeable staff. Decor is a bit outdated
