We celebrated my brothers birthday. It was short notice and they were able to accommodate about 22 within a few days. Food was amazing, staff friendly great for small or big parties.

Nice atmosphere, good service and great tasting food. A little pricey, but well worth it. Never ate there before and didn't go on recommendation, just took a chance and it was worth it, will patronize it again. Really good all around.

Good local place for Italian, a bit pricey for local. Their wine bar is exceptional as a place to meet or have a drink

The proprietors of this fine restaurant are on point as is there food. This is a cozy restaurant which is great for couples or when catching up with friends. The fresh mozzarella, grilled octopus, and fried calamari were all excellent appetizers. We only shared a special pasta made by the chef and I couldn't get enough of it. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone in the Whitestone/Flushing area.

Perfection. That is what we kept saying as we tasted each dish. We found Liola by chance, liked how it described itself, and went. It was beautiful inside, but we were skeptical as we were alone in the restaurant. Waiter was amazing - wrote nothing down as we asked for a hundred things and debated what we wanted. My son felt like having Bolognese but it was not on the menu. He said no problem, we will make it for you. My daughter could not decide between the ravioli (spinach and ricotta with truffle cream) and rib eye steak, so he said she could have a half order of the ravioli as an appetizer. It went on an on like this. Yes, he remembered everything. We got a pizza for the table as an appetizer. Reaction: perfection, of course. Another table of dinners entered (Italians). They got the specialty - carbonara - made in the middle of he restaurant in a huge Parmesan wheel that is lit on fire.We applauded when it was ready. Turns out that was the chef. He came over to us after the meal to explain how he brings in ingredients from Italy; how he uses truffles; how he is trying to introduce real Sicilian cooking, but when someone wants a typical bolognese or Parmesan, he'll make that for them though he does not put them on the menu. He was so nice, so friendly, extremely good looking by the way. We could not understand why this restaurant was not packed. Then the bill came. We thought they had made a mistake. Completely reasonable.
If it gets reviewed by a NYT food critic, there will be lines around the block. In the meantime, we are going back every chance we get.
