From The Owners of Anella

Quirky Italian fare in the empty husk of the Queen's Hideaway, given a solid star from the New York Times ' Sam Sifton.

Bleh! Is the chef a microwave? – First of all, just read the review below me.... did this restaurant hire a poet to write their review?

Ok heres one from a real customer and his date. We chose italian and wanted to check out more Greenpoint restaurants because its an up and coming neighborhood instead of the stuffy Manhattan joints.

After dining here, man do I miss those stuffy Manhattan joints (realistically, Bay Ridge got the best Italian but too far).

So I got Pork chops. Dry dry dry drrryyy!! It was like it was put in a microwave. It was enough to shift the direction of my teeth. I dont know if it was the cooking of the apparent freezer burned edges of the chops that was worse.

The only saving grace of this place like all bad restaurants were the dessert.

My advice to you... if you want good food, dont go to this place.... if you want to get ripped off, please step right in!

Refined, simplified, rustic Italian fare in Greenpoint. – Out in Greenpoint, where classy restaurants are but few, Anella provides the locals with a romantic setting and food that’s much better than ordinary. The long, narrow space is decorated with wood and stone with a cozy outdoor garden in back. This used to be the beloved, funky Queens Hideaway, but now has a much more upscale, shabby-genteel vibe to it--and food that is far more Manhattan than outer-borough. There are fresh pastas, fresh pizzas and elegantly plated Italian proteins, such a pork chop milanse and an herb-roasted chicken. Anella provides a solid local restaurant for a neighborhood that needed one badly.
