I am searching for a mom and pop style of Italian place. I can't say i care for Bucco di Beppo. It isn't a great place for a simple quiet italian meal for 2.
Carrabas and Macaroni Grill do nothing for me. I am in search of a mom and pop spaghetti and Lasagna place that is reasonably prices with personal service.
IN the east Valley, Talianos used to fill the bill but it has been gone for ages. There was also a place called " The big Bowl" in Tempe that was simple and had great personality.
Any suggestions would be great. Just simple Italian food.
