In trying to be all things to all Astorians, this Montenegrin-run Italian restaurant can feel a bit unfocused. At any given time you might find a lunch buffet, early-bird and happy-hour deals, live music, or reality TV blaring on a flat screen by the bar (which is, unfortunately, connected to the slate-floored dining room). At least most of the food is ample and tasty. A sausage appetizer, braised veal shank, and beef lasagna flaunt the high-quality meat you’d expect from owners who formerly ran a butcher shop and steakhouse here. But some dishes are as bewildering as the setting: A bright-red pasta e fagioli soup is flavored unsuccessfully with chipotle, and you could find better trattoria desserts in the freezer-aisle.


Various deals include a $6.95 weekday lunch buffet, a two-for-one happy hour, early-bid specials, and Website coupons.
