Owner and nightly host Antonio Gaita would never rely on such hackneyed gimmicks as The Godfather paraphernalia, vineyard-inspired décor, or opera music to recreate the feel of his beloved Italy. Instead, the eager-to-please grandfather attracts a local, slightly older crowd with family recipes brought back from his hometown in Avellino, a small city northeast of Naples. Gaita drifts from one mustard-yellow table to the next, making personal recommendations and trading stories and compliments with customers in each of the two cozy dining rooms. While his expansive menu dutifully covers traditional meat and pasta dishes, from chicken Marsala and baked ziti to fettuccine Alfredo, it's the seafood offerings that merit special attention. Delicately breaded and drizzled with herb-infused olive oil, the jumbo-sized shrimp oreganate and accompanying baked clams makes for an ideal shared appetizer. Scungilli marinara arrives as an overflowing mountain of conch and mussels swirled into linguine and bathed in a garlic tomato sauce. Between the oversize dishes and endless, lighthearted chatter, you're likely to want to return—if just to relive this extended family reunion.
