Episode 1

IN 1999, Chef Rocco Sacramone opened Trattoria L’incontro and immediately established his restaurant as one of the finest in the metropolitan area. The cuisine combines traditional classics along with updated dishes and family recipes customized by Chef Rocco. He only uses the freshest, finest ingredients incorporating seasonal seafood, vegetables and fruits. Excellent service, and an extensive menu with an overwhelming list of creative daily specials and an elegant, airy decor combine to create an unparalleled dining experience. Attention to detail, unrivaled hospitality, and catering to the satisfaction of every guest keeps Zagat-rated Trattoria L’incontro at the top of the list for restaurant destinations.


Featured in The Daily News, The New York Times, Dish duJour Magazine, The Queens Tribune, the walls are covered with plaques from esteemed places such as the James Beard Institute and pictures of luminaries including Bill and Hillary Clinton. Making sure things go smoothly is the Manager/Maitre’D Vinny Bizati. And, although there are six hostesses, Krista Severeid was on duty the day of filming and welcomed us with her dazzling smile.
