looking for dinosaur southern italian meal in east bay

RenateV | Dec 29, 200401:54 AM

I'm looking to recreate the heavy Italian meals
my husband and I used to eat in Queens, NY,
as kids in the 60s/70s. The closest I have come
here is Joe's of Westlake (I really love that place!
I know it's terribly heavy food, but it really
fills that comfort need for me!). I am looking for
lots of heavy meat sauce, lots of cheese
on the veal and chicken parm, big portions - you get the idea - but I would like to know if there
is such an animal closer to home (I live in
Albany). Any suggestions?
