Western Queens Gazette 20th Anniversary

Dear Tony,

The Queens GazetteThank you for a wonderful party. Riccardo’s was the perfect place to celebrate 20 years of Astoria and Queens Gazette history. You are a phenomenal host and a gracious, generous person. I cannot compliment you enough on the high quality, superior food that was presented. Guest after guest commented on how delicious the cuisine was. As I said in my opening remarks, Riccardo’s, for many of us, is our home away from home. I am proud to have had the Gazette’s 20th anniversary party at Riccardo’s By The Bridge.

Honorable Mention: Western Queens Gazette Publisher Says “Thank You” (Reprinted from the Western Queens Gazette)

Last night the Gazette passed a historic milestone. Staffers and friends of the paper gathered at Riccardo’s by the Bridge in Astoria to celebrate the paper’s 20th year of publication and its 13th under the leadership of owner, publisher and editor in chief, Tony Barsamian.

“There are so many people who made this day possible I don’t think I can ever thank them all” Barsamian said. “Tony Corbisiero, who owns Riccardo’s, made this wonderful party happen through his generous hospitality. This is just the latest example of how much he does to accommodate all the groups who meet here.”

40th Anniversary of North Queensview Homes

North Queensview HomesDear Tony:

We would like to thank you and everyone else at Riccardo’s who helped us have a most perfect 40th Birthday Party for our cooperative, North Queensview Homes, Inc. We especially appreciate your effort to serve ethnic foods not ordinarily included in your buffet as well as the patience shown at the time of our flower delivery.

We are so elated with the success of our affair held at Riccardo’s on Sunday afternoon, May 16th, that we feel impelled to write to you expressing our gratitude. We are not new to Riccardo’s, in that we used your facilities in 1981, 1982, 1983, 1987 and 1997. However, the quality of the food and the service rendered by your Staff this year were outstanding. Starting with the eight (8) hot hors d’oeuvres right through to the dessert, all of the food was plentiful and delicious, served in an elegant and pleasant manner. We must give special mention to your General Manager, Charles A. Campione.

On the eve of the affair, we had to make changes in the seating plan we had previously faxed to you. Charlie Campione was very patient, cordial and understanding and extremely cooperative in making last minute changes. At the affair, he stayed on the floor for the entire five (5) hours making certain that all of our guests were satisfied in every respect. He even acted as MC, when he felt it was necessary, and kept our party alive.

We also must compliment Charles Campione for his excellent common sense. We made a mistake in indicating where we wanted to locate the bar. After it had been set up, he was willing to relocate it nearer to the hors d’oeuvres for the cocktail hour, but then came up with a better idea. He had the waiters take drink orders from everyone so that they would not have to cross the dining area to get to the bar. We have received the most favorable comments from all who attended our May 16th affair.

Our Wedding

Dear Riccardo’s,

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know why I chose Riccardo’s to have my wedding reception at. My mother and I visited twelve different reception sites and three Bridal Showcases. We were able to narrow our selection down to two: Astoria World Manor and Riccardo’s. When we made the decision to go with Riccardo’s the deciding factor was Eleanor. During all three visits to Riccardo’s, Eleanor was very professional and efficient. Eleanor made us feel that she would, personally if need be, make sure every thing went smoothly on our special day. Eleanor took the time to show me the different rooms each time I came in and answer the many questions we had. Never once did I feel like she was “just doing her job.” Please extend my heartfelt thanks to her for a job well done.

Sincerely Yours,
Ms. Karen Lynn L.
