The service was exceptional, the staff were really kind, patient and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious as well and the owner came by the table to check on us as well. In addition, the portions were just right. Will definitely go back there on a regular basis.

Restaurant did a nice job with outdoor dining. Waiter was very nice but didn't follow requests. We asked for my wife's fish to have no pepper or lemon, but it came with both. The restaurant did re-cook. My sauce was supposed to be fra diavolo but was just tomato sauce. The buraratta special was excellent and as represented. Wine list pretty average. Ambience nice.

Prices have gone up, but that’s becoming the norm following covid hell; happy to support a locally owned small business providing ample options to dine safely and enjoy top-notch Italian. Everything was prepared from scratch with care and the flavors were jumping off the plate. Service was attentive and professional, and the outdoor dining area was decorated with beautiful lights and plants. Well-spaced. There is also an “indoor-outdoor” space with heaters (door open for airflow).

Nice lunch. Pizza with Prosciutto was very good with a slightly carbonized crust that was very flavorful. Branzino al Limone - well prepared and served with very good masked potatoes.

My wife and I had Easter Dinner here. It was my second time visiting this restaurant, the first time about 4 years ago. I am always on the lookout for authentic Italian food in a neighborhood that used to have an abundance of fine Italian restaurants but is now in competition with pricier parts of the City for trendy and overpriced establishments that are here today and gone tomorrow and seem to cater to fashion models on starvation diets. Via Trenta provides consistently good Italian food at prices that are comparable to what you will pay in Manhattan or Brooklyn, but without the pretentiousness. The service is good without being overbearing and it’s a pleasure to be able to walk home without enduring traffic or subways. The atmosphere is inviting, causal without the hipster grunge. As someone who grew up on Italian cuisine, and who knows what he’s eating, I would recommend.

Food was OK, nothing special. Small portions, pricey ($20 for a one-person margarita pizza, barely two slices worth of food). Welcome by management was at best indifferent, bordering on rude. Need to learn a little bit of professionalism.

Flavor of food was great. However a bit bland. The "spicy" squid ink pasta that the server even warned me would be spicy, had no bite to it at all- I thought they forgot to put any spices in!

Desserts however, are phenomenal. Highly recommend the chocolate mousse: one of the best I've ever had

This was the worst restaurant experience I’ve had in years. A completely empty restaurant and they demanded my date and I order $25 each (we had only wanted wine, appetizers and desserts) which is fine - I get it, they need to stay in business - but the way they told us, hovering over our table, putting bill in front of us, was so rude and inappropriate. I am a former travel writer at The Times. I’ve never had such a negative restaurant experience in all my travels.

We are not sure why we haven't found this place earlier! They have been there since 2011 and happy we decided to make a reservation last night! Service was 5 Stars! Samuel was our server. Between Him, the Manager and the rest of the staff, we were waited on hand and foot. We had a bottle of wine and the glasses were always full, beet salad is delish! I had the mushroom pasta & he had the seafood squid ink pasta.... it was so rich in flavor! For dessert we had the Ricotta Cheesecake.... exquisite! Thank you Via Trenta! We will tell everyone about this place and will definitely be back!

I’ve been here with friends and family and we all love the food. Everything is delicious and the servers are very attentive. I’ve always enjoyed my meals here! My favorite thing to order is the Pappardelle ai Funghi Selvatici (wild mushroom ribbon pasta with truffle butter sauce) and the octopus!!!!! Anything with burrata I love, as well :) I’m so glad I stumbled upon this place. I don’t live in astoria but I always love coming here to stop by the restaurant!!!

I love dining at Via Trenta. The food is always superb, the service is always above and beyond. My only complaint was that we had to keep listening to the phone ringing. Other than that, it was a great experience and very happy to be back to indoor dining.

The food and the service was great. But we were seated at an outside table and though it was covered I was cold the whole night. They should be more specific that when you request an indoor table you might still be sat at an outside table table.
It was truly disappointing to be cold and uncomfortable the whole night. I don’t think I’ll be coming back to this restaurant to eat again after this experience. At least not until it’s warm again.
