Great Italian in the East 30s

Josh Mittleman | Nov 4, 199702:45 PM     5

Try La Giara, on 3rd Ave. just below 34th St. It's a
small, very good Italian restaurant. Prices are
reasonable: appetizers & desserts were $6-$8, main
dishes $15-$20. The food was really special. We
started with a salad of tomatoes with the best
mozzerella di buffalo that I've ever had, followed it
with risotto with truffle oil and parmesian cheese, and
then duck breast cooked in grappa with raisins and
orange flavor. And they make a fine tiramisu.
