2017: Queens Voted Papazzio Best Romantic Dinner!
39-38 Bell Blvd., Bayside, NY 11361. 718-229-1962
Your choice of restaurant could make or break a date night. But, at Bayside’s own Papazzio, romanticism reigns. Voted best romantic dinner in the borough, the high-end Italian eatery features Northern and Southern Italian fare, with weekly live jazz and blues nights that make for an easy – but unforgettable – night out on the town with a loved one. Renowned for being both intimate and inviting, Papazzio prides itself on its “taste of elegance.” From its elegant exterior of brick arching over deep red French doors, old-fashioned lamppost lighting, and a redbrick sidewalk, to the charming interior of distressed brick walls and walnut-colored wood floors, Papazzio transports diners to a quaint, yet comfortable trattoria in Tuscany. Its visual appeal also includes an eclectic arrangement of warm, unusual lighting, and a richly-appointed granite bar backed with mahogany and glass shelves of bottled wine. First opened in 1990, the romantic restaurant has been previously dubbed “Bayside’s treasure,” and the ‘hood’s “best kept secret.” It’s no secret anymore that the famed eatery’s exquisite menu and intricate décor go hand in hand to make it the best in the borough.
