I have been eating here since I was 2 years old (i'm 37), its been a Christmas tradition every year after that, with some special occasions booked in between. Service and food have been the same for all these years, I love the staff and the cozy white table cloth atmosphere. I cant ever decide what to get so I... More

This is my first review of this wonderful Italian restaurant. I have been here many times. Finally I am letting everyone know how superb this restaurant is. First of all, the service is top notch.

Stellar Dining experience! As we entered we were presented with several of the evening's food selections. Our server Antone was outstanding! He was very professional yet very personable. He made excellent wine suggestions and was very gracious. We were told and it proved TRUE -if you don't see it on the menu, the chef will make it for you! Fabitz!... More

I went to this restaurant on a business meeting with several colleagues this week. Excellent and plenty of food. The seafood platter was itself like a dinner. I had lamb chops and they were cooked extremely well. The dessert platter to share was also an excellent choice. Service of the place was also very good. This is not a fancy... More

Dinner at Piccola Venezia is a trip back in time. This is the type of service from our childhood. The food is great and there's lots of it. A whole fish elegantly filleted and delicious is quite a meal. Get in your car and don't worry that there's no place to park, they have valet parking.

We had a wonderful time here, celebrating a double birthday with another couple. Everything about the place gave us a good feeling, the old world look, the friendly staff, and the plentiful signs the place was popular with locals. We drove from the city on early Sunday evening, and street parking was no problem. There is valet parking available as... More

This is a gem in Astoria, Queens. As another reviewer said, it is a true old-school Italian restaurant, with great veal dishes, wonderful pastas, and a good range of seafood and steak dishes as well. The service is particularly warm and friendly, and there is a good, varied wine list. I went regularly (perhaps monthly) with a late friend of... More

Zagat ratings are accurate - great food and great service, a little pricey, but some nice touches. Thank goodness for valet parking. Complimentary bruschetta and olives tasting for app, and nice cookie for dessert. Great bread selection. A bit noisy, but it was crowded and every patron was smiling and enjoying the meal and friends.
