My son lives close by and likes to take me out to enjoy lunch in the neighborhood when I visit from California. We could go to Manhattan, but why bother with the subway and the crowds when you can take a nice walk? Chef/owner Giuseppe Vitale is from Napali and worked for Lidia Bastianich (as seen on TV) before going... More

Had googled restaurants in the area and La Vigna came up tops! We were not disappointed. The service, food, decor and on site parking made it the perfect place to celebrate a birthday!

This is a neighborhood gem. The food is scrumptious and plentiful. The service is friendly and efficient. I had striped bass perfectly cooked and filet. This restaurant is a neighborhood favorite. Try it and you will agree.

La Vigna is a small but a extremely charming little restaurant in Forest Hills serving exceptional dishes from Italy. The chef is particularly adept at cooking seafood perfectly as the grilled octopus over a caponata sauce can attest. He is just as talented with sea and stripped bass. The servers are friendly and accommodating as I had the seafood special... More

We've eaten here twice a month over the years. If you want consistency and great Italian food, La Vigna is the spot. The hot eggplant appetizer is so fresh you can taste every ingredient. For the main dish, if they have the Osso Bucco you've got to get it! The main dishes including the specials are sheer perfection, the presentation... More

We had a family luncheon there for 30 on July 14th. The occasion was not a happy one, but Anthony and his staff made everything pleasurable for our group. My husband, daughter and I ate there for the first time two days prior, and enjoyed everything from the stuffed mushrooms, to the eggplant rollatini, and several veal dishes. Anthony (the... More

Thought noise level would be better this time as we were celebrating another b'day. Just as noisy as in May when had several private parties in same large room. However, the staff is so lovely & the food excellent, so have to avoid weekends or perhaps go at lunchtime. Glad it's a popular place. Deserves it.

Located on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills, an upcoming Restaurant row is La Vigna Restaurant featuring Chef/Owner Giuseppe Vitale’s masterful interpretation of Italian cuisine. With the walls painted in the warm golden tones of an Italian villa and huge wood framed mirrors which expand the intimate space, it is perfect for smaller dinner parties. La Vigna also features a beautiful wooden bar with an excellent selection of Italian and Californian wines.

Chef Vitale, born in Naples, was a chef for Lidia Bastianich for many years, learning the mastery of her techniques at Felidia, Becco and her original location in Forest Hills, Bona Via. La Vigna's cuisine combines the ingredients of traditional Italian home cooking with a sophisticated touch haute cuisine.
