Arthur ave bronx - 1st visit report

zorgclyde | Sep 27, 2006 02:07 AM

I went with my friend to Arthur ave for the 1st time after visiting botanical garden this saturday.
Well, I should have copied down the address first, but I forgot that Roberto's was on crescent ave, not arthur. So since I didn't find it, and my friends and I were hungry, we just went to one that wasn't too expensive looking. Dominick's was completely full, so even though I was tempted to go there, we went to Emilia's nextdoor instead.
The food there was terrible. The waiter's face was completely masklike. The only thing I liked there was the bread. My friend liked it but she was from Tenessee, and even she wasn't really awed. The stuffed artichoke was awful, and pasta sauce taste like canned sauce.
My advice: Don't go there.

But I am wondering - is there any red-sauce joint that's actually decent? Doesn'thave to be refined, but good value with big portions a must. I think my parents would like to try, but no way I'm going back to Emilia's.
I did see the Clam place was pretty full, and Dominick's too, but I heard there's no set price for the latter. Anyone want to share their thoughts?
