Italian, LunchLizComment

Authentic Italian in Corona

Typically, my reviews are about restaurants in Manhattan, BUT, my world was expanded when I went to Corona to FEAST on Italian!!! Park Side is hands down the best Italian food I've had outside of my own home (my Dad is a damn good cook!)

To start, you get bread that is STUFFED with cheese and meat. It is insanely good. You have to pace yourself though, because this is only the beginning of a massive meal.

I was with four other people, so we were able to order a bunch of appetizers. We got the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail (Biggest shrimp ever!!!), Baked Clams and Crispy Fried Calamari. Everything was delicious!

For the entrees, the rest of my party ordered: Penne Alla Vodka with Chicken, ot the Chicken Francese, Shrimp in Garlic Sauce and Chicken with Eggplant. I got the SUPER THIN Veal Parmigiana with Vodka Sauce and Side of Fettuccine. It was superb. I seriously cannot rave enough about it.

This is a special restaurant that is certainly worth the trek from Manhattan. I look forward to bringing my parents here!
