Old fashioned, unpretentious eatery with great food. No gimmicks or ""fresh twist"" here, just straight forward Italian food. I love their frutti di mare salad, as well as the pasta selections. . The diningroom is hot in the summer time, cozy in cold weather. Red checkered tablecloth, mismatched silverware, heavy plates that have been washed a million times with scratches to prove it. Makes you feel like you've lived here for a long time.
Pros: good food, historical
Cons: small, bad A/C, a hike from subway
