hey all! i am a recent DC implant from Queens, NY and I'm looking for a down-home red sauce Italian joint. lots of the italian restaurants mentioned here are a little more upscale/chic than what I crave. I want to find a place with some reliable pastas (vodka sauce, brown sauce with broccoli, red sauce, baked pastas, etc) salads, and classic entrees on the menu.
I tried Sorisso the other day, and that was kind of (but not exactly) what I have in mind. any other recommendations?
thanks for the help!
