This family-friendly restaurant serves up enormous portions of southern Italian favorites in a nostalgic setting.
Family-style portions and red-checkered tablecloths create a casual, congenial vibe, drawing families and large groups to this feast of Italian-American nostalgia set to a Sinatra soundtrack. The made-from-scratch menu is brimming with traditional dishes, from starters like fried calamari, Parmesan garlic bread and Tuscan-style mussels to spaghetti with meatballs and manicotti with chicken and spinach. For those with room to spare, a piece of sweet tiramisu and a strong cappuccino help finish the meal.
Half-portions are a good bet; they're still generous and considerably less expensive.
Make reservations for groups of five or more, or you could end up deep on a waiting list, especially on weekends.
