"Real" Italian Food In Central NJ

Heatherb | Jan 21, 2008 05:14 AM

Ok, this is probably going to set off a big debate, but I am looking for "real" Italian food. I live near Trenton, and there is some truly wonderful Italian food around here - it's my favorite type of food. However, I'm dating a guy who lived in Italy for a few years - he finds the Italian restaurants in the area to be very Americanized. I'd like to take him to a restaurant that serves food as close to it would be in Italy as possible (region doesn't matter). Are there any good places for that around here? Any places that make their own pasta? Somewhere in the Trenton, Princeton, Hamilton, or even New Brunswick area would be great. What about Chick and Nello's?
