What a great place to go.
Even though surrounded by Italian restaurants, I go to Ippolito's pretty frequently, because:
Their service staff is enthusiastic, and very helpful.
Their food is consistently good.
Their prices are very good value.
Their servings are gigantic. You will probably pack a take out box.
Their garlic rolls are delish.
If you happen to catch them while they have lobster and or shrimp bisque, you are in for an unexpected treat.
If you go on a Friday or Saturday, be prepared to wait for a little while, but not terribly long.
