There are plenty, I know.
I'm looking for old school done right.
Something that is as delicious as La Parmigiana in Southampton, but in Nassau.
La Strada in Merrick isn't doing it.
The packed La Piazza in Merrick makes me cry. Why do people eat there?
Cafe Baci in Westbury is a no go.
I haven't yet tried Elisa's in North Bellmore, but it has been recommended.
Steve's Piccola Bussola in Westbury is good, if only for the marinara sauce in a dirty fry pan.

Where do I go to taste the old school classics done right? Nona in the kitchen.

Pasta sauces, marsala, francese, parmigiana, scampi, marinara, oreganata, All of which make the entire dining room smell wonderful and appetizing.
