Located on Metropolitan avenue in Forest Hills, an upcoming Restaurant row is La Vigna Restaurant featuring Chef/Owner Giuseppe Vitale’s masterful interpretation of Italian cuisine. With the walls painted in the warm golden tones of an Italian villa and huge wood framed mirrors, which expand the intimate space, it is perfect for smaller dinner parties. La vigna also features a beautiful wooden bar with an excellent selection of Italian and Californian wines.
Chef Vitale, born in Naples, was a chef for Lidia Bastianich for many years, learning the mastery of her techniques at Felidia, Becco and her original location in Forest Hills, Bona Via. La Vigna’s cuisine combines the ingredients of traditional Italian home cooking with a sophisticated touch haute cuisine. The Zuppetta di Cozze e Vongole, mussels and clams in white wine, garlic and tomato broth is typical of the appertizers, which go one-step further than usual. Many veal dishes are offered including a Costoleta di Vitello alla Vigna, a veal chop with grapes, walnuts, and aged Balsamic vinegar oor in the pasta selection there is homemade gnocci topped with a rich red veal sauce. Fish, chicken and beef offerings are original and unique such as an Italian version of bouillabaisse the Zuppa di Pesce Mediterrania.
