We had a great meal last night at the new restaurant, Vesuvio, opened by the owners of Il Vesuvio in Bayside. It is on 149th St and 12th Ave in Whitestone. It is nothing like the pizza place.It's a large space,[former Mezza Luna] with a totally different menu, something for everyone's taste. We shared a salad that was very good. We always liked the pastas at Il Vesuvio, so that's what we ordered. I had pappadelle with duck ragu, my husband fettuccine with shrimp and crab. They were both excellent. Can't wait to explore more things on the menu.
