Ample selection of wine, zero natural light and you taking in some lively jazz, giving off serious Dickie Greenleaf vibes. These are the things the Producer Table is made of. It’s an underground, old-school supper club beneath Capri Ristorante in Little Italy, and it’s open to the public on a reservations-only basis Mondays and Tuesdays. We now rem...

You have to try it. That’s what people had told me about Mamma Onesta’s in Lockport. So a friend and I stopped one day when we had to be in downtown Lockport anyway. One step inside and we were struck by its Old World elegance and café charm. I quickly snapped a couple pictures and sent them to a friend I thought might appreciate them. “Mamma Onest...

Umberto’s, a pizzeria chain with a presence on Long Island that goes back 52 years, opened a restaurant on Plandome Road on Sunday. The stretch of dining and retail places in the heart of Manhasset already plays host to Italian restaurants like Gino’s, Villa Milano and Randazzo’s. “Let the great Manhasset pizza war commence,” said the Twitter accou...

Two brothers are taking a page from their family by starting a pizzeria and adding their own twist to the pizza pie. Anthony and Sal Fasolino worked in Yolanda's Italian Restaurant on East 149th Street for 15 years. But on Monday, the third-generation pizza makers opened their own joint, Pizzaniste in Throgs Neck. The new eatery allows patrons to c...

Con un piatto di spaghetti all’amatriciana ha preso per la gola Bill de Blasio, l’attuale sindaco di New York, che la nomina excecutive chef di Gracie Mansion dopo la prova finale: una cena con sette portate italiane e asiatiche. Paola Aranci, quarantenne romana, di Monteverde, di strada ne ha fatta prima di arrivare nella Grande Mela un anno e mez...

The menu at King, which was opened last fall on the western edge of SoHo, by three enterprising young women, reads like a lusty love letter to Italian simplicity—something like what Meryl Streep’s Italian-Iowan housewife in “The Bridges of Madison County” would cook for Clint Eastwood’s lonely photographer, to show him the lost art of food as pleas...

The Daily Meal, the same food blog behind "The 101 Best Pizzas in America" — or the closest thing on the internet to a definitive, annual critic's ranking of the nation's best pizza joints — is drumming up some more controversy this month with an offshoot list that names "The Best Pizza in Every State." "There are plenty of states with pizzerias th...

Shake Shack is, of course, one of the great New York City success stories. Started as a stand in Madison Square Park, it’s grown to well over 100 locations around the world, all of which promise burgers and fries with an increased focus on quality and hospitality. Sbarro, meanwhile, was once a family-run New York operation that specialized in Itali...

Quando  nel 1994 Filippo Berio, uno dei produttori di olio d’oliva più noti in Nord America, inviò all’esposizione di Chicago alcune casse del suo prodotto, dovette attendere quasi quattro mesi prima di ricevere una lettera che ne certificava la qualità e mostrava interesse alla commercializzazione negli USA. “A quel tempo non c’erano mail e cellul...

Despite the sophisticated experience that comes with classically Italian restaurants like Enzo’s and Zero Otto Nove, my parents only visit so many times a semester. To compensate, I typically wind up with Italian-American comfort food from Michaelangelo’s. Usually, I’ll down too many glasses of wine and order lobster ravioli in vodka sauce. However...

Two Smorgasburg vendors are setting up shop, side by side, on East Houston Street. Last week saw the arrival of Wowfulls, the snack shop specializing in, you guessed it, waffles. This week comes word that fellow Instagram-ready cohort, Tramezzini, is up next. No, not Trapizzino, which just debuted on Orchard Street last month. A tiny sign above the...

Where have I been? I’m reprimanding myself for overlooking this gem of a restaurant on Freemans Bridge Road in Glenville. There it has sat, family-owned for 46 years, cranking out pizza, catering parties and serving top-notch Italian-American fare. Don’t you make that mistake.
