I've lived on this avenue for a year - and finally gave this place a chance. Looked like a fancy Italian on the outside , but once served - sigh what a dissapointment... service is quick and accurate ( no complaints on service staff) - but the food was... well bland , plain , not tasty , no kick off...

Just back from gastroteca... bill came to 49 dollars with two pasta mains and one cocktail. Both the mains tasted plain and extremely small portions. Just stuck a pizza in the oven. Could have made a better spaghetti bolognese with ingredients from dollar tree. Very tasteless food. Not much atmosphere either.

We arrived late in the evening at our VRBO condo and started to look for a good local place to dine at . We did a quick search and settled on Gastroteca. Since it is Italian, I called ahead to see if they had any GF pasta, and they do carry prepackaged GF noodles. When we got there, we asked... More

Great brunch at this Astoria restaurant. Small very well laid out room with lots of windows and comfortable seating. We did not have a reservation but they fit us in before their 1pm reservation. Very helpful service. Food was very delicious. Had a California Benedict, which had eggs, avocado, small rolls and Tomatoes with a small dollop of hollandaise sauce.... More

This small restaurant is in a nice corner location, and is very quaint with a reasonable amount of seating. The menu had a good selection and the wine list was extensive. Both appetizers and entrees were reasonably priced. The bartender and the server were friendly and efficient. The woman who brought out the dishes was abrupt. There were three of... More

We were keen on having dinner before our movie just a few blocks away at the United Artists Kaufman and was really looking forward to Gastroteca. We were so pleased because the restaurant was ready to impress for sure. It was a very cold night and the place kept us warm as soon as we walked through the door. We... More

I have lived in Astoria for a long time and this place has been my favorite neighborhood restaurant since the day I discovered it many many years ago. There is nothing on the menu I've ordered that I wouldn't order again. I love this place. The ambiance is lovely and it's perfect for a date night or brunch with friends.

Wonderful Itialian joint great for coctails and dinner. My partner and I frequently nip in for a drink and inevitably order a starter or two, and as the pasta's and mains are all delicious we usually stay longer than intented! We haven't been for brunch as I wouldnt expect it to be their specialty, as some of the less pleasant... More

Came to New York about a week ago and stayed in Long Island City. Not far from the airbnb, we came about this gem of a restaurant. Had the spaghetti carbonara on Saturday and it was so good, that we decided to come back on Sunday to try the Shrimp scampi grits before flying back to L.A.

I just have returned back from Gastroteca. While my lasagna bolognese was tasty, service was very slow and I thought my waiter had forgotten me. Admittedly I was sitting outside, but my waitress did not come out to check that I had been served. I also ordered a coke which tasted more like diet coke and then I had to... More
