We requested handicap seating on our reservation which was not acknowledged. Food was very salty. Would not be returning.

My husband and I have been going to Ornella’s for years and enjoy coming back every year and for special occasions. Today, we celebrated our wedding anniversary at Ornella’s. Joe the owner is wonderful. He greeted us and checked up on us. The waiters are very pleasant. The food is delicious. Words cannot describe how great the food is. My husband and I highly recommend Ornella’s.

Not your average restaurant. Chestnut and pistachio sauces are divine. Calamari and burrata were fabulous. Our Italian nephew (who grows chestnuts) gave it a huge thumbs up. We shall return.

I went to Ornella for dinner with my wife and was expecting for a warm meal. Overall shrimp pasta came out lukewarm at best and with a total of three shrimps. "Cappuccino coffee" was more a water-down regular coffee [instead of espresso] with cinnamon.. milk was not even frothed.. disappointed

We have been regulars at Ornella for the past two years. It is our go-to place in the neighborhood for everything from a date night for the two of us, special occasions, and our favorite spot to show off Astoria when we have guests. Giuseppe and his sons are remarkable. They treat us like family and we love them.
