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.

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!

I am torn about this review. The service was good, albeit a bit choppy at times. The tables were a little too close for my liking--they cram people together even with other spots open (??). I do have to give them props for the strong wine list and for the most part, the dishes we had were well prepared and tasty.

Except for one. There was an advertised special--fettuccine with freshly shaved truffles for $30. Sounds simple, decadent, and mouthwatering, right? I was down for a splurge #treatyoself. Sadly, what we got was a pile of pasta with a few measly slices of truffle that came from a jar (wet, flaccid, and lacking any oomph of umami). I have had this dish before and know what it should have been--this was an insult to fresh truffles and my tastebuds. I think this is shady and have a hard time justifying going back/recommending when there are so many other authentic restaurants in Astoria.

Brought family here for Saturday dinner. One of the better Italian spots in Astoria. Awesome wine list, and daily specials are worth trying. Servers were extremely attentive and we were treated to a complimentary champagne toast for dessert. Not a huge place (especially when restricted to indoors only) so make a reservation. Will come again!

Via Trenta is my GO TO Italian spot. I grew up in a very Italian family and this place is so amazing. Everything I have gotten from this restaurant has been delicious. I bring friends and family here and they all love it and want to come back. The staff is great, the food is cooked wonderful, and we loved eating earlier on because we had the entire place to ourselves before the rush came. This place is a MUST GO.

We made a reservation New Years eve. At first it was a reservation for two but my mother and son were added to our reservation. They were very accommodating and gave us a table for four. We had the prosciutto and the artichoke appetizers. My mother had the fillet mignon, my wife had the seafood plate, and I had the organic salmon. All dishes were great!
