Great Traditional East Coast Italian American Food
We love the atmosphere (small and intimate) but not stuffy. Bill Mellilo(Silvio) is a great host--he will stop by several times during your visit to check on you and pass the time. We really love the way the food is prepared and Silvio will prepare the dish the way you want so you can be creative when ordering. I asked him for capellini aglio e oilo with anchovy and capers--he delivered a delicious rendition that reminded me of how it tasted growing up in the Italian section of Brooklyn. He explained that he gets some of his ingredients from New York and New Jersey and you can tell by the taste. Be sure to make a reservation--it is always packed.
