Winegasm Eatery is an intimate wine bar and restaurant in Astoria, New York with a bistro like feel, ideal for conversation, while sampling wines and cocktails from all over the world. An open kitchen offers shareable portions that make this Mediterranean tapas menu fun to explore while enjoying a glass of wine or a pitcher of Sangria. <br><br>Exposed brick walls complement the intricate woodwork, giving a Mediterranean feel to this eclectic wine bar. Communal tables cater to large parties while smaller groups will revel in the private seating and romantic setting.

"I tried Winegasm with a few friends and we were NOT disappointed! We had the spread sampler, truffle fries, mahi tacos and steak crostini. All were delicious and the drinks were good too! We will definitely be returning."

Zio Ristorante, offers dishes influenced by flavors of the Mediterranean as well as seasonality. Lunch includes paninis and grilled pizza specialties, from a traditional Caprese, to a Crudo topped with prosciutto, stracchino cheese and arugula. Chef Max always uses the freshest ingredients and builds his menu around the seasons. Homemade pappardelle with lamb ragu & a glass of red wine will nicely round out the meal. A selection of meat and fish entrees will remain as choices as well. The dinner menu is organized by antipasti, soups/fresh salads, pizzas, pastas, as well as a tantalizing selection of meat and fish dishes. Signature dishes to start include the Riso al Salto, a crunchy saffron risotto cake, bone marrow, and gremolata sauce, to the Polipo e Panelle, a grilled octopus, with chickpea cake and chicory. The majority of our pastas are fresh made on premise. Please visit our web site for more...

"We started with the baked ricotta, scallops and capresè, all amazing, especially the ricotta and scallops. We had the tuna tartare also but nothing too special about that. Then a few people wanted pasta but not as their meals so the waiter had the chef split a few orders of the gnudi up into individual portions, also very good. For entrées people ordered lamb chops (delicious), short rib ravioli, chicken dish and another pasta. Everyone was pleased and the service was excellent."
