Vesta Trattoria is restaurant/wine bar in Astoria, and it’s the sort of place where people seem to know one another. It’s a neighborhood spot (and it’s kid-friendly), but it’s also just a little more upscale than a place where you want to eat in your sweats. They make several pastas (including a very good wild boar lasagna) , and they also serve other things like osso buco, chicken, and a burger. If you need a dinner-date spot in Astoria, this little place is ideal - and you should also know that there’s a great weekday happy hour from 5-7pm.
