Let's have dinner at SoleLuna

Tagliolini Ai Frutti Di Mare
Leave it to my boyfriend to always pick out the best places in NYC to have dinner! I have never ventured out to the Sunnyside area in Queens, NY but Daniel and I were in Astoria and decided to have dinner around the area. Daniel had picked SoleLuna because he swears by FourSquare and always picks places based on their recommendation. We walked into SoleLuna at around 5:40 p.m. without a reservation and noticed that it may have still been too early for dinner but we didn't mind since we were starving! We were seated right away and decided to have drinks as well ass appetizers. Daniel had an Italian beer while I opted for a glass of Sangria and we both shared a plate of Polpette (four meatballs braised in tomato sauce) and had a decent amount of bread for starters. 

I am personally not a fan of meatballs since it tends to freak me out ever since I had my first meatball experience from Subway. I have to admit that these were the best meatballs I have ever had and I even started craving them days later! As my main course I knew I wanted a pasta dish with seafood and that is exactly what I had (see picture above). My plate was everything I could ask for and it reminded me a lot of my dad's cooking which brought me much joy.

Daniel on the other hand opted for a simple pesto pasta dish which I found to be a bit too "pesto-y" but he mentioned that he really enjoyed his dish. All in all I know this has got be my favorite Italian restaurant since everyone was very welcoming and the atmosphere was just wonderful (not to mention our waitress looked a lot like Kristen Bell!). 

If you are ever in the area and want to explore a great Italian restaurant then I highly recommend SoleLuna. You can check out their website HERE or read their Yelp Reviews or FourSquare Reviews

Until next time!
