i have to retract the recommendation i made for Frank and Pauly's a few months ago. i now realize that I was at a different place altogether (no idea where-long story). so i went for first time this weekend. almost everything was awful. only slightly better than prison food i'd say. we asked for a pasta dish with olive oil in the name, and yet it came out essentially in water. and water, i have always been taught, is the opposite of oil. and the chicken dish (not my choice) consisted of a couple chicken breasts micro-waved and topped with the "water sauce" from the nearby pasta dish. (the fried calamari was all right though.) does someone have a better italian place where olive oil and garlic are used liberally? thanks.
