Try it!!!!Real Italian not like Omar(the one with a problem)

I couldnt stop myself from answering your review. My dear Omar Herrera (real italian name that eats real “italian” shoe). Did you actually eat there or work there? It really sounds that you were fired from Il Poeta. Let me show you what a bad lier you are. To begin with, you ar critisezing the manager and the owner because they dont know how to run the bussines or act. (only somebody that worked there would care about this). A real customer, like me, doesnt care about the business, only about the food and the ambient that is great. Second how in the world a WAITRESS could be disgusting? Did you go there to eat or to buy a date? Did you try to take them out and it didnt work? There are ilegal in USA? How do you know? Maybe you are just mad because USCIS grant them to stay in US. For a customer you know too much about everybody , dont you think so? It is an Italian restaurant and in NY many languages are spoken. They may have an acent, but we all do in US. Did you go there for a history or english class or to eat? And yes OMAR HERRERA you are as italian as Bin Laden. You will be a customer there maybe next life. You are a fake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tagliolini del Poeta

Toothsome, Tasty Tagliolini. Flavors and aromas of porcini, speck and parmesan made it a Phenomenal Sensory Experience. Highly recommend it and other dishes

EXCELLENT!!!!!!

my and my girlfriend decided to go out and eating at Il Poeta last thursday, we ordered polenta with taleggio cheese as appeteizer and burrata cheese, then she ate risotto with asparagus and shrimps I had a tagliatelle bolognese both superb, no cream as usually found into the bolognese sauce, risotto the best I ever had, the menu was also not too big but 100% Italian food without usually fettuccine alfredo or meatballs, I fly to Italy quite often for work and I enjoy eat there and the menu and the taste I had at Il Poeta was even better than many place in Rome and Milan.
Sounds like that Italy moved in Foret Hills!!!!

Like eating in Italy!

I come here every week as does everyone who loves great food. Both the chef and manager are from Italy and not only will you taste the flavors of their country but have the experience of being served by two passionate Italian restaurant owners who are proud of the delicious food they serve and know how to do it well! This afternoon the entire Forest Hills Women’s Club was here as well as the branch managers of a local bank, and someone from The Queens Chronicle. When I told a local magazine to write about this restaurant the editor told me that EVERYONE had been telling him about it. The food is DELICIOUS. There are only a couple of restaurants in Queens, or New York City, that serves food of such authenticity. I suggest you visit soon before it becomes a mob scene.

DO NOT ABSOLUTELY EAT HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DO NOT ABSOLUTELY EAT HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FIRST OF ALL I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE MYSELF
AS A FOOD CRITIC AND I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO
SUGGEST YOU ABSOLUTELY DO NOT EVEN THINK
ABOUT EATING OR SPENDING A PENNY IN THIS
LOW CLASS SOUTHER ITALIAN RESTAURANT!
BOTH OF THE OWNERS BY THE NAMES OF MARIO
DI CHIARA ( MEDIOCRE FOOD AND LOUSY CHEF)
AND LUCA ( AN ABSOLUTE ITALIAN LOOSER-PLAYBOY)
WHICH CAN’T HARDLY KEEP UP WITH A FLUENT ENGLISH CONVERSATION WHICH RECENTLY WAS REJECTED THE AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP BY THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE BECAUSE OF HIS POOR KNOWLEDGE OF AMERICAN HISTORY AND POOR ENGLISH.
PLEASE YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME THESE TWO INDIVIDUALS ARE INCOMPETENT TO RUN A BUSINESS AND HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE WHAT SO EVER OF FINE DINING OR KNOWS HOW TO RESPECT THEIR OWN EMPLOYEES.
OHH ALSO BOTH OF THE WAITRESSES ARE FROM RUSSIA AND ROMANIA AND THEY ARE BOTH IN THE USA ILLEGALLY, NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT THEY DO NOT EVEN SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH AND THAT IL POETA RESTAURANT ONLY EMPLOYEES
( FEMALES) LOOK LIKE THEY ARE CALL GIRLS WAITING FOR THE NEXT VICTIM..
PLEASE DO NOT TRUST LUCA ( WILLING TO BE MANAGER) BECAUSE HE IS THE BIGGEST FAKE EVER.
DO NOT DINE OR EVEN THINK TO SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE BECAUSE THE FOOD IS COMPLETELY
NOT WORTH IT AND IT IS EQUIVALENT TO ANY COMMON GHETTO DINNERS.
SINCERELY,
OMAR HERRERA.

MILANESE

I RATHER EAT MY OLD ITALIAN SHOE RATHER THEN
A OVERPRICED THIN OLD DEEP FRIED VEAL MILANESE
WHICH IS NOT WORTH IT A PENNY!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND SAFE AGGRAVATION BECAUSE THIS DISH AND MOST OF ALL
THE FEMALE WAITRESSES SERVICE IS DISGUSTING
