I could swear I read more than once (though not necessarily on these boards) about an above-average Italian place in eastern Queens. I did a search here, nothing doing. Now that I need to find an unpretentious Italian place with good food, I'm coming up empty. (I'd settle for a little pretension at this point.)
We've been to Il Baco in Douglaston, I thought the food was great, but our friends nixed a return visit. Our experience has been that Italian restaurants hold the best menu choices for us - four eaters with very diverse tastes/requirements.
Any alternate suggestions out there?
