SUNNYSIDE – Senso Unico, a new Italian restaurant that is coming to 43-04 47th Avenue, will host a grand opening event this Sunday, November 19, from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
Owner and chef, Vincenzo Garofalo, said he’s excited to open his doors to the community after much fan fare from local passersby. The restaurant is taking over the space that was occupied by Mario’s for more than three decades.
“Many of our new neighbors have been stopping by this past month to see if we were open yet, and now we are happy to invite the entire community to our grand opening this Sunday,” Vincenzo said.
Although the restaurant can seat up to 50, tables and chairs will be stored away in favor of a standing-room, buffet-style set up for the grand opening.
Complimentary food and beverages will be provided, including chicken meatball, pizza fritta, crispy ravioli, Parmesan cheese wheel pasta, select wine and more. Guests are expected to rotate in and out throughout the night to sample offerings and meet the owners of the family-owned restaurant.
“Senso Unico in Italian means ‘one way’,” wife and co-owner Laura Garofalo said. “As an Italian family, we believe the ‘one way’ to happiness is family, eating good food, and drinking good wine—Senso Unico will be the place where people can find this.”
The restaurant will be closed on Mondays, but will reopen for full table service Tuesday to Sunday from 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
