HELP! Need a REAL Italian place in New Haven for this weekend.

ljulian | Apr 13, 2011 06:11 AM

We're from New Haven but haven't lived there in many, many years. My memories are of great mom-and-pop type restaurants with escarole and beans, veal parmigiana, eggplant, great pastas, etc. on the menu. Not frou-frou, not too fancy, just great down home Italian food. Can anybody recommend a place for that in New Haven or East Haven? I'm bringing a group of friends into town to go to Pepe's (they've heard about it for so many years and want to try it) but we need a second place to go for a late lunch on Sunday. Thanks in advance for your help!
