Italian Food in Wilmington, DE

As a teenager (please don't ask how long ago that was!) I lived in Wilmington for a little while. I have some awfully fond memories of The Charcoal Pit, but the only food I remember really going a bit nuts over in Wilmington were the Italian restaurants around...was it Union Street? Especially a place called Pala's. None of the places my dad and I would go to were fancy, but they were real Italian-American joints serving truly yummy red gravy dishes. I recently moved back to Philadelphia after several years away, and I have family still down in DE. I am trying desperately to come up with suggestions for places to go for lunch that don't involve chain restaurants around the Christiana Mall.

I learned that Pala's has been gone for some years. This made me sad as I have lovely memories of their food (especially their antipasto and their spaghetti with sausage). I was wondering if anyone here could recommend any other places for good Italian or Italian-American in that area? If that neighborhood has changed so much that there is nothing to recommend, I'm open to other ideas.
