La Vigna Restaurant & Bar
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.
Beautiful dinner with my boyfriend for our anniversary, for which our server brought us a complimentary tirimisu which was the best I have ever had - homemade makes a difference! Definitely recommend.
It was a very enjoyable meal. The food and the service were great.
The food was delicious and it did not take long to come. Their Prix Fixe menu is great and well balanced and you can't beat the price.
Good neighborhood Italian restaurant. Service has much improved and we really enjoy their pastas. Risotto was good. Chicken Cordon Bleu was outstanding- I wish they would put it on their regular menu. Inexpensive wine and pretty good.
Food has good taste but they serve small portions.
Very good food , quiet, pleasant. Service was slow but waiter was very pleasant.
Delicious dinner as always, and great service. We look forward to our Saturday nights there all the time!
great place for long island people to meet people from manhattan lovely wait staff good food
Always an amazing dinner !
Excellent and delicious as usual. Everyone so nice. My go to restaurant.
Delicious dinner, and great service as always! Thank you!
It is not that the food is sensational, the ambiance exquisite or the service 5 star. It is the whole.
A wonderful neighborhood restaurant where one feels instantly welcome. You will have friendly and efficient service, good and wholesome Italian food at that at reasonable prices.
The menue changes frequently and shows many delectable specialties. Some of the Ravioli are the best the city has to offer. The lunch menue offers great choices at a price that can't be beat and that on white tabe cloth with fresh flowers and a generous helping of fresh semolina or sourdough bread.
And the deserts.. try the fresh homemade tiramisu.
An every day realiable place that one get's never tired of.
Great service and awesome food
Polite and very quiet
Great italian restaurant! Went here for mother's day and it was packed! Ordered veal and it was superb! Tried their affogato and my mom ordered coffee and both were not good at all. But we didn't have to pay, so it was ok.
Excellent service, great food, convenient Forest Hills location on Metropolitan Avenue.
food is always great.they never rush you with a check until you ask.
Well I think we have been back here 6 times and have had a wonderful experience each time. The food and service (Vinny & Raul & the manager Anthony) are outstanding. Depending on the other customers , it can get very loud at times, but that can happen at any restaurant. This is now our favorite Saturday night dining spot.
Sorry Borosa, but your food does not come close to La Vigna's.
Absolutely great !! Everything we had was great !
Food and service are quite good. Special dinner is reasonably priced and ample portions.
Will return again.
Love, love this restaurant. Delicious food, great service,!and very cozy.
The caesar salad was ok. The waiter said the dressing had anchovies but I doubt it. My fish was ok, but not ultra fresh. Good for pasta dishes. Good service, reasonable wine prices. Good all around, but not great.
Excellent experience as always. The specials were great, and delicious!
It was my niece’s 25th birthday. As usual, the food was fantastic. Our number 1 restaurant.
Great food and service. Never had a bad meal here. Homemade pastas are great!
Amazing food, and great service. A wonderful local restaurant, we will be making reservations again very soon! Thank you!
As usual. Very delicious and enjoyable. Come here once a month. Staff is great.
The food is consistently delicious and well prepared. The wait staff are friendly and attentive which makes it a pleasure to dine there. If you haven't dined there, you are missing out on a wonderful experience. What are you waiting for?!
Food is always beautifully prepared. Delicious. Staff always friendly.
Great appetizers. Excellent service. Reasonably priced and great entrees. Nice little neighborhood restaurant.
Very good. Quiet. Romantic
Great food and ambiance
Food was great and the service was good.
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.
Our go to restaurant for a great meal and wonderful service.
As usual food was great and service super. Love this restaurant. Don't need to go to the city for good food. It's here.
Great neighborhood Italian in Forest Hills, Queens. Excellent food and friendly service. We will be back often...
Excellent food and service. Had a very nice New Year's dinner
