Cono & Sons has a reputation as one of the city's hidden culinary gems, yet a dinner here lacks that certain sparkle. The white, low-ceilinged dining room is nearly walled-in, save for a few windows covered by tall plants—effectively camouflaging the guests, and keeping others away. Familiar renditions of antipasti, pastas, chops and seafood dishes make up most of the menu. Among starters, the octopus salad is invigorating, its chewy rings and mini-tentacles tossed with diced celery, pimentos and capers, but stuffed mushrooms have an undistinguished filling over supermarket-caliber white caps. Shrimp oregenata is fully blossomed and tangy, and the extensive list of veal dishes offers a veal scallopine marsala with a rich, pleasing flavor and tenderness. Meanwhile, a side of homemade linguine is sadly mushy. If a meal here leaves you craving something more inspiring, you might find it with dessert at one of the neighborhood's more colorful pasticcerias.Extra
