A real neighborhood gem. Great food, great service and reasonable prices. Perfect combination.
Great family-run Italian restaurant in the Ditmars area of Queens. Space was cozy and the food and service was fantastic. The owner, Giuseppe, made sure we were well taken care of and stopped by our table on a few occasions to make sure everything was to our liking. Also got to meet his son Gio that helps run the business, along with another one of his sons. If you can't make it to the restaurant you can also order through seamless. Would definitely go back for another dinner date with my wife. Good people and service all around. Portions were big and prices were reasonable. Check this place out if you are looking for a good authentic Italian meal.
This is our fourth time at Ornella. I love trying new dishes each time I go there. The owner is cordial, the waitstaff attentive. Overall, I love it!
A wonderful New Years Eve dinner with friends! Food was amazing as always.
Great service, incredible food, cozy dining room
The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were a pleasure. I’ll eat here every time I’m in the area and will recommend to everyone. What a great place.
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.
Delicious as usual! Friendly staff. Definitely coming back soon!
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.
Had some of the best spaghetti and meatballs the other evening out with friends. Everyone loved their dishes. Will definitely be heading back!
We are not strangers to Ornella Trattoria Italiana, and made a last minute reservation for family that was visiting. Normally service is really quick, but admittedly this was a busy Saturday night. Food was good and all servers/greeters were very friendly. Family left stuffed!
We had a great business dinner here, it is only 10 min from the LGA Airport. Why sit in traffic when you can enjoy terrific food and Wine?
The staff treated us like family and there are numerous food options, plus homemade pasta and also Home-cured meats too.
Absolutely worth a visit and Astoria is a lovely neighborhood too.
