Great Grandma Slice – Never had Dinner here, But i can say they have very good pizza. In particular their Grandma slice is great!
Great food, fabulous service – We started our meal with the best portobello mushrooms ever. They tasted like we were eating a steak. We had a half a portion of pasta and the sauce tasted like my nonna used to make. I had the snapper livornese(red sauce, capers and olives) and my husband had the grilled veal chop. It was out of this world. The service was fabulous and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. Would recommend this restaurant in a heartbeat.
Overpriced and not special – The food was ok, common italian food maybe a bit better than the average Pizzeria. Prices were very high for what you got and the service was less than stellar.
The canolli I had for dessert was not fresh and that was very disappointed.
WoW!! What a Restaurant – The night I was there, besides extraordinary food and service, the owners; Carmelo Leotta and Pietro Cinquemani were belting out Mario Lanzi tunes on the Steinway piano.
Tenor Robert L Uhl was present and provided excellent background vocals.
HANDS DOWN - THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD – I can honestly say that they have the most amazing food here. There really isn't a bad dish on the menu. They have amazing specials all the time - seafood, meat, pasta. My personal favorite is the Saltimbocca Ala Romana. They have a distict way of making it. Very different from any other place i have had it. The ultimate best though!!
Do Not Go Here!!! – Myself and two of my friends decided to try this based on citysearch reviews...let me tell you DON'T...i tried to call to make reservations the night before, but they told me to call back tomorrow...i asked for the dress code and he told me to call back tomorrow..?!?!?!...Even after this weird phone call we decided to try it anyway....Well I can't tell you how the food was because the moment we walked in, the single waiter was extremely rude and told us to wait outside while he cleared a table (in the middle of winter) because he was busy...let me tell you, there were plenty of tables available....because he was so rude we left and went somewhere else....if that's how they treat customers i can't imagine anything else could be good....
Deep in the heart of Queens, Graziella serves up simple, good Italian
cooking. – The Scene
Graziella has a loyal customer base and makes few concessions to the outside world. The small single room--wood panelling, large mirrors, white tablecloths, dim lighting--has few frills. Service is unhurried at
best, so be prepared for a leisurely meal.
The meal begins slowly, with a plate of excellent garlic knots. Pungent, salty salad of roasted peppers dressed with bagna cauda is an excellent appetizer; likewise the eggplant involtini, filled with creamy fresh mozzarella. For the second course, a variety of fine pastas include the whopping linguine allo Scoglio, a sizeable plateful of noodles topped with seafood in a rich tomato sauce. A giant order of tender gnocchi larded with sweet sausage meat is also very flavorful. The other side of the menu offers chicken, veal, and seafood standards, including perfect saltimbocca and a huge, succulent veal chop. For dessert, there's sublime cheesecake.
