A Very Tasty Visit At Vesta Trattoria & Wine Bar

By Ilija Sekulovski

Leo Sacco and Giuseppe Falco have been giving us fantastic dining experiences guided by the local green market for a while now, and we just couldn’t keep quiet any longer.

Coming from Astoria, these two old friends have brought their love for food and passion for Italian cuisine to our plates. Even the artwork inside the Astoria staple was all done by local artists.

Coming together with famed Chef Michelle Vido, Vesta Trattoria & Wine Bar have become one of the go to spots in Astoria for all your Italian and wine needs.

Walking in, you straight away get a feel of warmth in this relaxed dark , candle lit atmosphere. With a heavy wooden inspiration, and walls adorned with images of the family, old Astoria and more, this cozy little spot has all the trimmings of a unique and characterful place to eat.

But enough about the look, let’s get down to the taste of it all, and with options like the following, there’s no reason we’re crazy about Vesta!

Steamed PEI Mussels & Manila Clams $12

With white wine, creme fraiche, basil & house made bacon, this appetizer is a sure fire way of getting your appetite in the perfect mood for what’s to come.

– Beef & Veal Lasagna $17
With two-meat ragu, herb ricotta, basil & grana padano. Rich flavors come alive in this classic Italian dish made to melt in your mouth.

– Chocolate Rum Tiramisu $7
Chocolate cake, mascarpone, espresso rum soak & sugared almonds. A dessert which will have most people going back, but only one of a few others that will definitely be tried in part deux.

If you want Happy Hour, then Monday – Friday, 5PM – 7PM you can have your way with some delicious Heirloom Tomato and Chickpea Crostini for only $4, or  try the selection of House Made Charcuterie and Cheeses with a Bottle of Wine $30.

Either way, it’s a treat to sit in a nice place with some great company and have service that’s on point with a smile, and food that has all the right ingredients in all the right places.
