Brooklyn >Queen Marie Italian Restaurant
“While not much to look at from the outside, it has a pleasant, tasteful interior with soothing lighting, comfortable sound levels and decent spacing between tables.”
“Aside from the homemade pastas, wonderful home baked breads, delectable desserts and the best house made mozzarella in the city, you can also find old fashioned family favorites.”
“Good wine list.”
“GREAT food, polite service, nice atmosphere”
“My wife and I usually order from the daily specials menu, and we also like the linguine with white clam sauce and the shrimp fra diavolo.”
“If you are looking for service and all the frills $$$ - Il Mulino is the best for both - if you are looking for a fabulous dinner in/out - this restaurant is it!”
“Nice polite service, adult atmosphere, and perhaps the best Italian food I've had since I came back from Italy.”
“Portions are generous, and you'd be missing a real treat if you skip the fresh mozzarella, their signature dish.”
In downtown Brooklyn, a stellar Italian restaurant with one of the burrough's best bread baskets..
You want to resist everything about this place--the silly napkin sculptures, the mirrored walls, the color scheme borrowed from the world's worst wedding halls--but somehow wind up enjoying it all in the end. Part of the charm is in the earnest service; part of it is the colorful clientele; but the real charm comes from what emerges from the kitchen.
The classic Italian menu gets off to a good start with Queen's famous bread basket, which is loaded with a slew of crunchy, yeasty homemade varieties. Navigating the dinner choices is easy if you stick to the huge array of specials, which range from homemade lasagna to simple, yet gorgeously grilled meats. Whether it's a half-pound ball of milky fresh mozzarella, a bowl of cushiony gnocchi with peas and mushrooms or tender veal saltimboca, dishes are carefully prepared and presented.
Not bad at all.
The ambience is somewhat lacking...
The service is good, but the staff is not too friendly.
I had the lasagne, which was tasty, a little salty, but good, nonetheless. The cheese ravioli is very good.
Overall, the food makes up for what is missing in the ambience and service.
A tip for Queens' employees - smile, will you!
One of the best in the city. Forget the decor, food matters! One of the best Itailan in the city, Queen is worth visiting from Manhattan! Straightfoward, pleasing or whatever you expect from real Italian food.
