Eats: Il Triangolo in Corona

Lauren Glassberg in a Neighborhood Eats segment features Triangolo restaurant in Corona Queens which serves up classic Italian food. (WABC)

Mario Gigliotti's restaurant can found in a triangle-shaped building on Corona Avenue in Corona, Queens, and it's fittingly called Il Triangolo.

Inside it's an intimate setting. Mario's mother and his wife, Piarina, play a big part in the cuisine at Il Triangolo.

Piarina is behind all the homemade pastas on the menu, and she makes them in every shape and style.

She also makes the bread and that undoubtedly contributes to the dining experience here.

And with this home cooking, you might not want to leave! You'll find veal dishes, chicken Frangelico, salmon and, yes, pasta and more pasta - even one shaped like triangles.
