Queen Restaurant Review

: Queen was once a humble pizzeria, and though its brick-oven pizza still lures customers (Brooklyn politicos, courthouse regulars and families marking special occasions), it's now better known for its giant portions of seasonal antipasti and pastas. The homemade mozzarella is a real crowd-pleaser, as are the chicken cacciatore, veal saltimbocca, and pasta alla Norma (with eggplant). Queen's desserts, which change seasonally, are all homemade.
