Queen Marie Italian Restaurant was founded by the late Chef Anthony Vitiello, Pasquino and Vincent’s father, and opened her doors in September 1958. From a young age the Vitiello brothers found themselves immersed in the culinary world. Often school vacations were spent in the restaurant kitchen, under their father’s supervision, learning their craft. Today, with a legacy of excellence for over fifty years, the tradition and enthusiasm for “La Cucina Italiana” lives on.
Now cooking for their third generation of guests, the Vitiello brothers continue to maintain an unwavering commitment to quality, consistency and innovation. Their cooking is always evolving, bringing their guests the tastes and flavors of all the twenty regions of the Italian peninsula. Specialty breads of five regions are produced daily in their in-house bakery. Specialty pastas, sausages, fish and cheeses are all prepared in house, along with a luscious range of inventive homemade desserts.
“We view Italian cuisine from an interregional perspective, which allows us the flexibility to harvest the many unique gems, and take advantage of the magnificent bounty of the regional Italian culinary landscape. Our vision for our cuisine is honest, pure, and from the heart. Harmonizing the freshest, highest quality, seasonal ingredients available, minimally processed, with respect for essential and recognizable flavors, presented in a refined and distinctive fashion.”
As a family owned and operated business for over fifty years, our guiding principle in all aspects of our hospitality service is our commitment to excellence, integrity, value and customer satisfaction. We cordially invite and welcome you to join us in a warm and relaxed setting for lunch or dinner.
To all our patrons longstanding and new, Buon Appetito and Mille Grazie for dining with us at the Queen.
Pasquino & Vincent
