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.

this was a birthday lunch, but it happened to fall on Valentines Day. We thought they would have the price fixed lunch noted on the web site. unfortunately not. the everyday price fixed lunch menu was more interesting and much less expensive than Valentine's Day offer. for example, the every day had filet of sole. Valentines day. had salmon but it was farmed and at a price which exceeded its quality. but the service and people were very nice. we will try again.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner as usual. The service is the best and I can never think of anything negative to say about LaVigna. We have been going there for years .

La Vigna may be a victim of it's own success--it's become too popular (and thus overcrowded). Our main course seemed to have gotten lost--others who came in after us were finishing theirs when we started complaining. When the food finally came out, it seemed hastily prepared. The manager apologized and said he would make it up to me, but did nothing. They probably need to take less reservations.

I was disappointed. We went there for my mom's 93rd birthday. I asked for something special for her dessert. One waiter brought over the dessert with a candle - they did not sing Happy Birthday. About 20 minutes later someone else in the restaurant also had a birthday and all the waiters went to their table and sang Happy Birthday. Not a good way to treat customers - favoring one over another. Also, the service was slow. Pricey for our neighborhood. Would not go back again.
