    Girlfriend and I went here for the first time on 7/25 for dinner. Valet parking made for a worry-free arrival. Ambiance inside was warm, open and romantic. There is a nice bar to the left and dining room to the right with fireplace. Service was attentive and professional. Bread was fresh and delicious. We shared rice balls, penne alla puttanesca and the special striped bass. Food was beautifully played and delicious!! Even the restroom was gorgeous. Bonus entertainment included live vocalist singing pop classics and jazz, not too loud, just romantic and enjoyable with some dancing at times. Pricing was reasonable. Overall wonderful experience. Only criticism was weak cocktails. Would definitely return!

    Took my sweetheat to Neo for Valentines Day dinner - at first we were seated apart at a table for two- it was crowed. But then they asked us if we could move over to a corner table because they had a big crowd comming in. They must have read my mind because they moved us over to a table in the corner and my sweetheat and I were able to be close to each other - that made the night - the food, the drinks and desert were great. The service was very attentive - the dinner was a success. This was our first time at Neo- We will be back.

    We had an early dinner at Trattoria Neo last night. We were a group of 9 including 2 children. The staff is amazing. Very pleasant and attentive and with the right amount of interaction. The food was excellent. The appetizers were prepared family style and everything was delicious and well prepared. The main courses ranged from pasta to lamb chops and everyone was thrilled with their choices. I loved that the kids food was served first ...a very thoughtful touch. This place is a neighborhood gem. The ambiance is very relaxed and comfortable. We will be back. The best I've had in the neighborhood.

    The only reason anyone was in the dining room that night was because of a jazz singer...all the diners..20 were her friends save 1 couple....the food was mediocre at best and the prices were way tooooooo expensive for queens....the special pasta was tasteless, had 5 small shrimp and cost $24....portions were small.

    Portions are good. Food is above average. Prices are reasonable. Service was a little slow, but friendly. I didn't appreciate the Gratuity being added, but that's just me. It also could have been because it was Mothers day. However I feel a "tip" is just that, a "tip". If the food and service are above average, then the tip should be as well. If it's below, then the same rule applies. Overall it is a nice local place and it was not crowded. I would try it again, probably on a day other than a "holiday."

    Went there for my first time with a few of the Girls and had a very nice time and overall enjoyed the food and service. Would definitely recommend the brunch buffet. Just a couple of suggestions, first the buffet server had to run and get dishes and leave his station so some of us had to wait for dishes and the others on line had to serve ourselves. Also,when receiving the bill, I believe it it stated that gratuity is included for parties of 5 or more, it is possible it said more than 5 but it would be better to state 6 or more because I had to take a close look. Fortunately for the server I noticed it was not and therefore added a tip. In closing, I will definitely go back.

    We went to Neo on a whim, having passed by many times, as it is right off the parkway. It was a great surprise. The appetizer (rice ball) was delicious, the pork dish tender. The special black linguini with seafood was memorable, and the apple cake (like a strudel) fresh and tasty. Atmosphere was lovely, with the fireplace going on a cold night. A find.

    Very good Italian food - particularly enjoyed the Burata cheese appetizer and the pastas were perfectly cooked. They are willing to prepare something that is not on the menu (my husband wanted chicken parmesan) and they do it very well! My only concern is that the noise level can get extremely loud - the bar is very lively and the dining room for some reason allows the noise to echo - it is still a very good neighborhood restaurant and we will definitely return, but we might go a little later after the crowd dies down a bit.
