Reply LINDA KING May 1st, 2013 LOVE ASTORIA. HAD THE BEST YOGA CLASS AND MASSAGE AT THE GIVING TREE. GREAT FOOD, ENTERTAINMENTM AND PLACES TO VISIT. Reply Matthew May 1st, 2013 Really thought Michael Angelo’s pizza should have made the cut! Its way better than Basil and always impresses out of town guests. Reply megc May 1st, 2013 Personally, I am a big fan of Michael Angelo’s pizza! The Sophia Loren is amazing. They cook eggplant extremely well, and it’s excellent on their pizza. Reply Rob May 1st, 2013 You know…there are other places in Astoria besides the Queens Kickshaw and Sweet Afton. Just sayin.

I think they should be listed alphabetically so not to lead the responder. Great survey, bummed I did not see Alba’s listed. Reply mackenzi April 29th, 2013 Mike- the survey finalists are listed in random order. They are based 100% on our reader nominations process. Reply Ananda April 29th, 2013 I love love love Malu!

No regrets as I was more than pleased. Reply Cathy R April 26th, 2013 Coolest Bar in Astoria is Rocky Mc Brides Come on down and have a great Time~~~ Reply Theo S April 26th, 2013 Omega Liquors has the best selection for Greek Wines that I have seen, Not to mention they make their customers feel like family. Favorite shop for wine by far! Reply Allison April 26th, 2013 We love Omega!! Reply pauline April 26th, 2013 I believe the King Souvlaki should win the Favorite Street Food award! These guys deserve it the most. Food-wise they have the best food from the rest even though the other ones are different cuisines and are also top in their food category. But most importantly the King Souvlaki has been in Astoria the longest. They deserve to have their hard-work recognized. Also Ricky McBrides is a great bar, voted for them! Il Bambinos is def my fave restaurant. They are just awesome at what they do! Reply james April 25th, 2013 Best bar is Rocky McBrides!!! Reply Cathy R April 25th, 2013 The best Bar In Astoria Is Rocky McBrides <3 Reply Maureen Stahulak April 24th, 2013 There is no doubt about it, the best entertainment and stars are Anita M. Buffem and Gina Marie Rittale of The Haus of Mimosa. They are witty, talented, and leave you laughing and wanting more! These divalicious ladies are going places!!! Reply josh April 23rd, 2013 favorite greek restaurant is agnanti… favorite bakery is parisi bakery and favorite street food vendor is the king souvlaki. all these hands down! Reply theresa April 23rd, 2013 Love the list–can’t wait to go to all of the places on here..you may want to give people a choice of other or n/a..would be good if you don’t know about something and its not relevant for you. Reply mackenzi April 24th, 2013 Theresa- You can skip categories you don’t want to answer. Reply Best massage in Astoria? | Sonia Maksimovich April 23rd, 2013 […] Apparently the first round of voting was just for nominations, but I made the cut! Now the real voting begins: Vote for your favorite massage in Astoria here: https://weheartastoria.com/2013/04/the-best-of-astoria-we-heart-astoria-reader-favorites-voting/ […] Reply larry April 23rd, 2013 I voted for King Souvlaki of Astoria as my favorite street food vendor and agnanti as my favorite greek restaurant! Reply Meli April 23rd, 2013 The fact that il forno on ditmars was not on the list for best pizza and that il tuffino made it on there makes me question a lot of the choices on the list. Reply mackenzi April 23rd, 2013 Just keep in mind, these finalists were chosen by WHA readers. We tabulated 100’s of responses to get us to these results. Reply marc April 23rd, 2013 Love Sac’s.

Reply Jenn from Much to My Delight April 22nd, 2013 Trader Joe’s is coming to Astoria?! For real? Reply mackenzi April 22nd, 2013 No, they’re not, thus the controversy. Someone spread that rumor last year and it really took off. Of course, we really wish they were joining us! Reply Lilian April 22nd, 2013 Great selection of everything! It was actually difficult to vote, so many wonderful establishments and options! :) Reply mackenzi April 22nd, 2013 Yeah! We’re so happy to hear that. Reply Jeremy Frank April 22nd, 2013 Great idea: can you throw up a Google Map of these places? Reply Jeremy Frank April 22nd, 2013 Great idea: can you throw up a Google Map of these places? Reply jeff April 22nd, 2013 why wasn’t trattoria l’incontro listed as one of the favorite restaurants? i would have gladly voted for it (and its wine bar) if they were listed.
