Co-owner Edy, is of Colombian and Italian descent and realizes the value of a historical restaurant and maintains it as such. He showed me where Frank Sinatra played cards in the back, so that's OK in my book!
My veal parm was pretty much excellent and was a BIG portion. Most of the pasta is made in the restaurant; the sauce (or gravy) was great and very rich and the mozzarella was made in the back fresh. I'll have to return for the ravioli and take in all the history that has made this place a gem on 1st Avenue.
