Ornella Trattoria: Where the Menu Begins at Home in Queens

These dishes aren’t culinary school perfections (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Rather, they are what you might find in homes from the Italian Alps to the Amalfi coast.

Proprietors Ornella and Giuseppe Viterale just opened their restaurant and their menu is based on dishes they both enjoyed growing up in Italy.
