Assured of good food, reasonable prices and an Aegean taverna café theme, local couples happily wait hand in hand for Agnanti’s patio tables overlooking Astoria Park. This winsome restaurant’s part-Greek, part-Turkish “Constantinople cuisine” deftly combines lamb and seafood with touches of almond, cinnamon and pine nuts. The menu emphasizes meze, or appetizers, and everyone seems to order a hearty, delicious phyllo-crusted meat pie. The intrepid move on to Greek-style main courses such as fried or grilled fish, tomato-bathed soutzoukakia meatballs or garides liana, a quintet of behemoth shrimp in a splendid lemony sauce. Regulars knowingly pair the gratis honey-cake–and-yogurt house dessert with semisweet, ruby-red mavrodaphne wine from Greece’s Peloponnese islands.

A timeless classic serving Greek with Constantinople influence. Always very good, always authentic and never "trendy."

The true, traditional Astoria atmosphere compliments the authentic Greek cuisine. Amazing food! Love this place so much!

This is an adorable, authentic spot right next to Astoria Park. You can sit outside with a view of the green while snacking on octopus appetizers and a karafe of wine.
