Looking for some delicious eats right across the East River? In this Queens Week report, has some mouth-watering suggestions.

Da Gianni's
21-50 44th Drive
(718) 707-0442

Zagat says this new Long Island City upscale Italian restaurant transports diners to a Tuscan countryside. They add this is the perfect lunch escape for suits who work nearby. And says come nighttime customers can loosen their ties and relax in the ivy-walled, villa vibe garden.

Da Gianni's has yet to be rated, but prices here are moderate.

Water's Edge
44th Drive & East River
(718) 482-0033

Zagat says this big-bucks New American seafooder is where fans can "fall in love" with both the "surprisingly good" dishes and the "extraordinary view" of Manhattan. Surveyors say the complimentary water taxi from Midtown right to the Water's Edge dock is a "great extra."

Out of a possible 30, Water's Edge receives a 22 for food, a 25 for decor and a 23 for service. Expect to spend about $60 a meal here.
