LA PALINA IS THE BEST BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN BROOKLYN. I HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE AND HAD A BAD MEAL, SERVERS ARE FRIENDLY AND VERY HELPFUL WITH SUGGESTIONS. NO OTHER RESTAURANT CAN COMPARE TO THEM THEY ARE ABOVE AND BEYOND THE BEST......
Whenever I want to treat myself, I go to Joe's Of Avenue U. I order the Linguini with Mixed Seafood....delicious!
Randomly came here with two other couples and really enjoyed our meal. Pasta with hot sausage was really good and the deserts were awesome!
I love there food vestead (spelled wrong but delicious) potato croquettes, baked clams , tripe , fish of the day , broccoli rabe anything they make we loveeeee thank you Joes been eating there since I was a child
I eat here often and LOVE it! The staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is absolutely delicious. This is the spot I always take out-of-town visitors. The atmosphere is great. They managed to make themselves look like an authentic old-time Italian corner restaurant. I've tried the brunches, lunches and dinners, which were all delicious. I especially love the gnocchi and the frittata with asparagus.
Great food...to go counter staff is always pleasant and helpful.
used to be reasonable and pleasant -- no morefood was ok - they play a bait and switch with online menu vs menu in restaurant prices way higher for mediocre food service was ok until end when we were practically chased out the door by server called my friend back who charged on her credit card to complain about the tip! she gave 15% he said it should be 20%!! then said leave 25.00 on a 70 bill which was enormous for a plate of spaghetti, a ceasar salad with chicken and an appetizeer of mozzarella. no drinks but water, one coffee and 3 desserts! so he thought she should pay about 100 bucks for that and then the nerve to complain about a tip! I am over 60 and have never ever ever had a server call you back when you are almost out the door to intimidate a customer into leaving a larger tip!!! do NOT go there someone else we know told us they screwed up their bill and they had to wait to go over and over it to get it straightened out ridiculous rip-off joint --no stars as far as I'm concerned definitely not a decent place to eat
They have reasonably priced and well made Italian cuisine. The decor is average and the wait staff is acceptably good. This is a decent place to eat in this area.
Great eclectic atmosphere, lasagna was perfect, try the Shandy drink.Love this place! It's a new favorite!
I highly recommend this rare jewel of a restaurant !!! Great service good atmosphere and the food and drinks are hands down the best I've had since being here.* WARNING * the bloody Mary's are amazing but really spicy!
