Authentic Italian?

Recommended Posts

Some some food slave friends of mine from Chicago are coming in town and they want to go to a "great, authentic red-sauce Italian".

I'm ashamed to say that I don't know any to recommend, I usually go home when I want that (South Jersey). Any suggestions since Rao's is obviously still impossible?

Thank ya.

Benitos 2 on Mulberrry St is good for that kind of thing if you want to hit Manhatten's Little Italy, then a cannolo maybe?

The great thing about barbeque is that when you get hungry 3 hours later....you can lick your fingers

Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.

Go to Queens or even Bronx for Authentic neighborhood Italian restaurants where Pizza is not always on the menu and people on your next table might still speak italian.

Below are some places around Morris Park Ave, the neighborhoods are safe and easy to park. Enzo is more modernized but Pine and Fratelli are more old-style with huge portion.

Enzo's Restaurant

1998 Williamsbridge Road,

Bronx, NY 10461

Frankie And Johnnie's Pine Tavern Restaurant

1913 Bronxdale Avenue,

Bronx, NY 10462-3315

(near the corner of Muliner Ave and Bronxdale Ave)

Fratelli's Restaurant‎

2507 Eastchester Road

Bronx, NY 10469-5901

For wood brick oven Pizza (especially its Sicilian style pizza) and also great pastas, go to

Patricia's

1080 Morris Park Avenue

Bronx, NY 10461

Also, in Queens

Gino's

213-15 35th Avenue (on the corner of Bell Blvd)

It has gone upscale, but its pizza is still top notch, really yummy crust, and comes in small size.
