Italian

Via Trenta in Astoria is a memorable Italian experience. Both the cuisine and the atmosphere are classic Italian. Via Trenta serves lunch, dinner and a weekend brunch.



The brunch offered by Via Trenta Osteria & Wine Bar is perfect for regenerating after a busy week. Relax with the overstuffed French toast with prosciutto cotto and fontina with a glass of bellini, prosecco, or a mimosa or Bloody Mary. The frittata choices are over the top as well with ingredients such as homemade mozzarella and wild mushrooms. At dinner, whether you choose the braised lamb shank, the boneless Pekin duck breast or something else, the experience will be memorable.

Via Trenta was great. We came in late on a Monday night because our cousins landed late at LaGuardia. The service and the food were fantastic! Perfect!

This was the worst service I've experienced in NYC. While we were still dining they brought us the bill. We ordered more drinks and were still drinking them and they brought us the bill again and asked us to leave. It was my friend's birthday and we had ordered appetizers, entrees, dessert and several rounds of drinks. This was after they had tried to seat us at a table too small for our group. When we asked for an appropriate sized table they said that my friend was large. When we left we saw empty tables. We had not been a loud boisterous group or anything. We saw tables who had arrived before us still seated. We have no idea why we were targeted for this bullying behavior. We will never return.

I could tell by the photos of the food that I was going to like this place. It did not disappoint. Fresh ingredients, ample portions, fabulous presentation and excellent culinary skills were exhibited. Service was attentive, but not annoying. News Years Eve menu offered a great choice. Noise level was high, but I think everyone was geared up for the night.

Would be nice if they are also kids friendly. I don’t mind coming here for brunch every weekend as long as they have kids friendly menu to choose from. It’s not hard to whip pancake: throw in some fresh fruits on the menu too. More room for improvement.

Experience overall was great. Food was good, especially the thin crusted Pizza. My only constructive criticism, is that Via Trenta has to offer little more room to sit. Other than that we had a good experience!

Food was very good. However, we were rather surprised by the very fast way in which dishes were brought to the table. Our first courses were almost still at the table when the second ones arrived. An effort should be made not to appear to be rushing customers.

We are regular customer of this restaurant. I order from the "today's special" menu which, a half Lobster with saffron sauce. The taste was good but, I got the only 2 pieces bite size of lobster meat. I am very disappointed about this happened.

The food is delicious but the portion is too small. You need to order all the course menu or two entrees to be satisfied. The service is good. The place is small. It's pricey.

Came here for brunch. The food was very good. The waiter was extremely attentive and even brought out dessert for my aunt with a candle without us even asking to do so. The ambiance is cute and quaint. Will definitely return.

My boyfriend and I came to Via Trenta after a long day of moving to celebrate moving in together. It was a beautiful rustic interior and very cute with the string lights. We got the special burrata with figs and pears (which was a good amount of cheese, but I wish there had been more than the few figs and pear slices on the plate for the price) and split a bottle of red for $35 - great price for a very tasty wine!

My boyfriend had the barramundi special for the entree - he had wiped the plate clean almost immediately. He LOVED it. I enjoyed my fettuccini with pesto, I wish I could have finished it. I opted to take some of my entree home to order the Nutella Panna Cotta dessert - the only real lackluster part of the evening. Lacked flavor, very gelatinous and felt like someone just opened a can and dumped it on a plate to be served. I should have skipped dessert and continued to enjoy the pasta.

All in all, it was a lovely evening. It was a little expensive for us so we would return for another special occasion and get dessert on the way home next time.

My husband and I experienced our first trip to Astoria while moving our son in from KY and this restaurant did not disappoint us. The owner Tommy was gracious and warm. To say the food was good is an understatement. We had the tuna tartare and smoked salmon as appetizers and they were delicious! We split the warm beet salad with caramelized red onions with spinach which was light and tasty. My husband had the wild boar ossobuco which was tender and full of flavor. I had the baby clams with flat spaghetti in a white wine sauce which was perfectly cooked. We sampled the creme brûlée and tiramisu which were the best we have ever had. The wine list was ample and the waiter attentive to ensure the glasses were filled.
We will visit this restaurant next time we are in town and highly recommend it for all occasions. It may be one of the best Italian restaurants we have ever had the pleasure dining in!
