A word from La Vigna Restaurant & Bar
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.Continued

  • "Excellent food and service. You are always treated like family. Exceptional homemade pasta dishes accentuate a vast array of delectable appetizers, salads, soups, main courses and desserts whether it be off the sizable menu or among the exquisite weekly specials that are offered. Their weekly email describing the specials gets your mouth watering even before your make your reservation (highly recommended on both Friday and Saturday nights). A true neighborhood gem!"

  • "My husband and I go there quite often. The regular menu is wonderful but their specials are outstanding and always a nice surprise. I've never had a dish there that I didn't like. The service is always great and Anthony always gives us a warm welcome. This was the first time I used Open Table to make a reservation at La Vigna and it was a good thing I did. The place was jam packed that night. My husband and I expect to continue going there as often as we can and I will make sure to make my reservations through Open Table."

  • "Went there for my birthday, We decided to try the pre fixe, instead of the regular menu or specials. The food was delicious especially the eggplant rolitini. For dessert, we preferred cheesecake, but it wasn't available,. So We ordered mousse and vanilla ice cream, which were ok."

  • "Cozy and charming atmosphere with very professional service. All pasta except for prix fixe was home made and delicious. Imaginative menu, impeccably prepared … sensibly priced for good value."

  • "This was my second visit to La Vigna in the past couple of months and it did not disappoint. Went with a group of six family members. We were greeted warmly, service was not rushed at all, servers were accommodating and friendly, if a little slow. The kitchen seemed to be a little long on spinach the day we visited, but other than its leaves finding their way unannounced into one of the daily specials (which I, no spinach lover, thought would have been better without it), everything was fresh and really good. Six meals and not one bad dish."
