Like many Italian-American eateries, Caselnova claims to be the culmination of a generational passion for food as the heart of the household. While its kitchen's pizza/pasta standards would almost certainly stand out at a family gathering, they're not quite distinctive enough to warrant an excursion across the BQE. This modest trattoria is only the latest member of a crowded, starchy field, with a menu full of lunchtime panini, brick-oven pies, and the usual pastas. An antipasti lineup includes mussels, baked littleneck clams, and generous platters of breaded calamari that might benefit from a brighter tomato sauce. Midsize pizzas' sturdy crusts support a generous heap of cheese; the Bianca pie stands out with a sweet white sauce and milky ricotta. Beyond pasta bowls and plates of the house's famed manicotti, Caselnova's kitchen offers some unique rotating specials like a sturdy chicken rollatini, its thick Parmesan wedges held in place by strategically placed prosciutto.
