Established in 1919, Puglia may be one of the oldest restaurants in Little Italy, but that doesn’t mean it's a slave to tradition. The place offers customary southern Italian fare, which patrons enjoy along with the festive ambience of in-house entertainment. Singer Jorge Buccio comes armed with an Elvis pompadour and a Casio keyboard and persuades the lively crowd to momentarily abandon their pestos or scampis as they clap their hands to Frank Sinatra tunes. If you want to sip your red wine in peace, head to the side room near the bar.
