Since 1986, this neighborhood favorite has been packed with big, boisterous groups chattering and laughing at long tables. Calling for a reservation is your first tip-off that you’ll be treated like an old friend: You’re likely to be called "sweetheart" seventeen times in the course of a minute. Fake-marble walls, drop ceilings, and chintzy murals do nothing to dampen the convivial, family-focused atmosphere—you almost expect someone’s gray-haired grandma to come out of the kitchen and pile seafood linguini and veal osso buco onto your plate. The menu sidesteps the new-fangled and trendy; here, it’s all about Naples standards executed authentically, in portions meant for sharing. Order the Ceasar salad to start: It’s graced with a vinegary coating of dressing and a thick dusting of Parmesan and whole anchovies. The carbonara is wickedly rich, featuring delicate strands of spaghetti, interspersed with cubes of bacon, doing their best to stand up to a weighty sauce. Chicken Scarpariello is a little dry but its accompanying sausage makes up for it with an unexpected heat. An added bonus: Most ingredients come from the pasta makers, cheese mongers, and butchers that line Arthur Avenue.
