  1. I will be visiting long island city saturday night too, so i second the request for recs.

    I was thinking of trying the coal oven pizza place (i forget the name. how packed would it be on sat. around 7 or 8?

    1. I think it's called Bella Via.

      1. Manducati's is always an interesting night out.
        Ask what's on the stove and order it.
        Tournesol is another option.

        1. Dazies Restaurant - 39-41 Queens Boulevard - has great Italian cuisine. Probably one of the best restaurants in the area.

            ughhh.. i have to disagree. dazies' food has been awful the 3 times i have been there. it has been a while, but my major complaint was rubbery chicken. definitely was nuked. all the attention and 15 million member wait staff does not compensate for bad food.
            the bar isn't bad. nice for an after dinner drink, but dine somewhere else!

              if you're in the mood for old school italian, go across qb to 43rd and greenpoint. hit up mario's. much much better and you'll save a bunch!
