Astorians Leo Sacco and Giuseppe Falco, along with Astorian chef Michelle Vido, have opened Vesta Trattoria and Wine Bar on 30th Ave in Astoria. They get their bread daily from Astoria bakery Gianpiero, the walls are covered with art by Astoria artists, their flooring, woodwork and uphostery were done by Astoria artisans, and they're turning local Greenmarket products into simple, tasty, well-executed Italian food.
On a late Autumn evening that included charred escarole, crispy brussel sprouts, potato and pancetta pizza (the magic of double-starch), Sunday Dinner Lasagne, linguine with local garlic, hot peppers, and breadcrumbs (double-starch again!), and a grass-fed Copper Ridge ribeye. Wines are well-chosen and excellently priced, all available in shots or glasses, with bottles ranging from only 24-38 USD.
