Ovelia is a Greek place on 30th Avenue in Astoria with a nice outdoor area in front and a huge bar. During weekend mornings, they have Greek-inspired dishes like a bacon, egg, and cheese on pita, and a very good stack of baklava pancakes (made with whole wheat flour, walnuts, and a lot of honey). At dinner, the menu is a bit more traditional, with dips, salads, and massive entrees. If you eat meat, the monastiraki bifteki is what you should be ordering here - it comes with fries and kebabs with ground lamb, beef, and pork. And make sure to get a side of the spicy feta dip.

Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that’s kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.
