Waddiya want? Sanfilippo's!!

Are you looking for Old World charm with candle lit tables hiding in dark, secluded grotto's? Don't look here. Are you're looking for an Italian resturant that smacks of the 1960s with checkered table cloths, an air conditioner perched over the entrance dripping water, and very good entrees? Then this is for you!

One thing i look for is value for my dollar, and Sanfilippo's delivers. Their sauce is tangy with tomatos and spices. I typically order the Chicken Caccitorre (sp?) dinner, and have some left over for tomorrow. Their garden dining area is great for the smokers in your posse.

You'll hear all about Filippo's Pizza Grotto in Little Italy, but don't bother. It's become a tourist trap, waiting lines are long, and it's high priced for what you get. Avoid that crap, and go to Sanfilippo's on Fifth Ave. You and your wallet will be glad you did.

D E L I C I O U S! and an outside patio for large groups... awesome pizza!

Okay, I am a HUGE Garlic Lover! I love GARLIC and nobody in this town knows how to make a Garlic Pizza like these guys! I love this place it is quirky, stuck in the past, when you walk in the door, complete with the criss cross red and white table clothes, the squeaky chairs, you have definitely, walked back in time the place is so quaint with fun corners, hidden tables and a huge back end patio that you will not believe the Spaghetti and Lasagna and Pizza are all so good it is always difficult to not move beyond my Garlic Pizza! I love this place it is so cool reminds me of when I was growing up in the Midwest of mom and pop eateries this place is not only fun to eat at and a trip down memory lane it serves up hot and diclinous pizza that you WILL go back for!
