Manducatis Rustica has been a Long Island City stalwart almost uninterrupted since 1959. No one is saying it’s the City’s best Italian. But there is still something fun about walking through its non-descript door and into the cascading dining rooms. Development may have infiltrated Long Island City, but Manducatis’ owners, the Cerbones, have made their own progress in the past two years. Namely, when their daughter, Chef Gianna Cerbone-Teoli opened her Italian café nearby: Manducatis Rustica. The layout takes a cue from Manducatis, with a working fireplace in the back of the first dining room.

You may have heard about their celebrated calzone, a sauce-covered $15.00 behemoth described as “a pizza folded over on itself.” But there’s also a list of brick oven, Neapolitan-style pizzas. The eponymous pizza pie, the Rustica ($13.00), is dressed with goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, and a healthy pile of fresh arugula.

Best pasta in LIC

I come here every couple of weeks specifically for the pasta. The sauce is perfect every time.

Good Food, Great Gelato

I like the food but the gelato is really excellent. The place could use a makeover, but I don't care about the decor I care about quality of food so this is one of my favorite LIC restaurants.

Business Review

Been to Italy several times and Manducatis many times.The pasta is the closest thing in aroma and flavor to the Italian homeland.
