Superb food and service with a menu and specials that have to be seen and heard to be believed. Great well priced wine list and caring management are the icing on the cake. Definitely worth a visit from Manhattan.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Trattoria L'incontroFirst time at Trattoria L'incontro and will definitely be back. Everything was superb - from the food down to the service. I can't believe it took me 3 years to finally eat here.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is one ofThis restaurant is one of the best I have been to in a long time. From start to finish it was great the food and service were outstanding. The specials that they had were great along with a fabulous wine list. Our waiter and bus boys gave us world class service. You will not be disappointed here try it and you will be back for more. They also have valet parking.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFeels like we are a special guestEvery time we go to L'Incontro we feel like we are a part of the family. Our daughters (one infant, one toddler) are so taken care of that we almost feel left out. The food is beyond excellent (and that includes the memories of our Italy trip less than a year ago). Never order off the menu, always listen for the specials and eat them the way the chef recommends.
There isn't an Italian restaurant outside of Italy that I can recommend more than L'Incontro.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the second time forThis was the second time for my husband and I eating here.

This restaurant to other friends and family4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWho KnewWho knew there was such a gem tucked away in Astoria. Rivals any in Manhattan.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely first dateI wanted an impressive first date, so I researched and asked lots of questions. Many recommendations and great reviews for this place. Made reservations on line, mentioned it was a first date, "something romantic.". When I confirmed the reservation with the hostess, she took note of the first date comment and moved our table "further back, away from the front." Wasn't sure what that meant, having never been there, but sounded like what I wanted. Despite traffic and distance, we still managed to arrive a half hour early. No problem. They seated us immediately. More specials than we could remember, our waiter has a very impressive memory! The food, fantastic, service was lovely, wonderful first date! Expensive, but worth it! I left a big tip!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh, innovative takes onFresh, innovative takes on classic Italian dishes. It's the blending of surprising ingredients that makes the food so exciting here: cod in a pistachio and vanilla sauce, for example.
Neighborhood places like this, with lost of regulars, can sometimes make you feel like an unwelcome outsider, but at L'incontro they are always glad to see everyone, the chef is out and about, and your waiters do their best to make you happy.

Truly impressed.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can't wrong with thisYou can't wrong with this restaurant...top notch service and ambiance. And the food is beyond amazing. The only restaurant we go to!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI always have a great experienceI always have a great experience there. The staff is very friendly and attentive, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is lovely.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Italian PlaceTrattoria L"Incontro is one of the best Italian restaurants in New York City. We have been here several times and are never disappointed. The choices are endless and the food always fantastic. Service is excellent from the Maitre'D, Vinnie, down to the wait staff. The Owner/Chef, Rocco, is an amazing host who is on top of all operations of this spectacular restaurant.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 2nd time at L'incontroThis was our 2nd time at L'incontro. They met our special requirements for a large group, and everyone thought their dish from appetizers to dessert was prepared to perfection. I would have given service an outstanding rating except that our waiter had difficulty stating and remembering/describing the 20+ specials. Our group had trouble understanding (accent) and hearing all the selections, which is a shame as they are choice. The recitation seems more shtick than "specials" as they were similar our last visit. Might I suggest a daily sheet or blackboard listing of specials? Some dishes, ie: ostrich were pricy. Other than that, you can't go wrong. We will most definitely be back.1/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and the warm greetingThe food and the warm greeting never dissapoints! The waiter's attitude, while def knowledgeable and very helpful was a bit on the .. Snobbish side. But I guess that's coming from being able to recite 15 minutes worth of specials (which by the way change few times a day) without once glancing at a written note.. All in all would def recommend it and def be going back!1/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA joy to go out...great menu...greaA joy to go out...great menu...great service. Makes you feel special and yet like family at the same. Noise level at dinner extremely loud...lunch is better12/18/2012 12:00:00 AMAs good a dining experienceAs good a dining experience as one can have. The menu and specials are unlike any restaurant in NY. Delicious appetizers, incredible pastas, inventive entrees are served in a beautiful setting. The wine list is extensive with an emphasis on Italians. A neighborhood gem that doubles as a destination spot. For anyone who considers him or herself a "foodie", Trattoria L'incontro must be added to your wish list.12/8/2012 12:00:00 AM
