So my boyfriend isn't a huge fan of Italian food à la Angelini Osteria. He's more of a Palermo (on Vermont) kind of guy. I have to admit, I do like this kind of food once in awhile. Give me Olive Garden-esque bread sticks, soup, and salad anytime! (Heh!)
That said, can anyone give recommendations for mom-and-pop-type restaurants between the Westside and Eastside that serve this type of food? We could, of course, go to the Olive Garden or Buca di Beppo, but we'd rather go somewhere like Palermo (this is the only one I can think of off the top of my head that fits my criteria).
Thank you so much in advance!
