Award winning Sicilian cooking from this family run institution (since 1961) in Little Italy. I had their fresh fish (pike) and it was the best I’ve ever had anywhere. Check out there pasta and pizza as well.

Beautifully restored, this mid-19th century mansion features elegant dining in the Study, the Parlor or the Library.
