“Bring a crowd” to this circa-1968 South Ozone Park Italian that’s “still cranking out” the “fantastic” old-world comfort classics ( “clams! clams! clams!” ) in portions to “feed an army” , washed down with “lotsa house wine” ; it’s cash only, the interior’s “tired” and service can be “snippy” , but fans shrug “so what?”

Food is very good. However we ordered sparkling water without knowing the price. Do not get fooled! It was like $20 per bottle of "imported Italian" sparkling water. I later found the same bottle for $2.50 in my local fairway market lol. Get the linguine and clam sauce and pasta Luciano with tap water. You will not regret it!

Best Italian food I have ever tasted, the staff have great attitudes and at lunch time the Place has no wait. Will go again🥖bread is just so good and addictive. The chicken 🍗 is the best

Passing through New York on our way home to Scotland and found this little gem. No reservations and cash only made me a little nervous but wow. From entering and notifying of your table request to leaving feeling fully satisfied the experience was fantastic. Food, wine and service all excellent. We will definitely be back next time we travel this way.
