Forget nouveau cuisine--this is the kind of Italian food that Don Corleone would have loved.. The Vibe This is a classy, white-tablecloth kind of place housed in a historic brick building in the Brewery District. The decor hasn't changed in years but it doesn't have to.
For Starters Choose from the classics, like Meat & Cheese Antipasta, Escargot and Shrimp Cocktail. The Roman Bread is garlic bread made better with gorgonzola cheese and black olives.
It's What's For Dinner While one section of the menu is called "House Specialties," the real house specialty is the veal--tender and flavorful preparations including veal Piccata and veal Marsala. The steak choices are filet mignon, New York strip or medallions sauteed in red wine.
Pasta & Pesce A popular pasta choice is Tony's Own Fettuccini, with shrimp, scallops and crab in a cream sauce. The eggplant parmesan is excellent, not undercooked. Shrimp scampi is another classic offering, with just the right amount of garlic.
