The other night my wife and I had a couple of hours to kill before meeting friends at a restaurant in the west village and we found Gaetana's Cucina Italiana. I know it sounds like a restaurant (and it is) but the bar is a good size so we went in and had a great time. The owner/bartender Frank is really friendly and got his recipe ideas from his mom. We tried the stuffede artichoke appy and it was terrrific. We want to go back for dinner and wondered if anyone else could give us feedback or suggestions.
