Tony and Lucille’s is a cute, completely unpretentious, family run (don’t see this much anymore) establishment in New Haven’s Little Italy with awesome Italian food. The decor is a bit dated and dusty in places, lots of fake plants, checkered plastic table cloths, paintings of Italy and knick knacks. The waitresses are the daughters of the owner and they are a bit brash and loud but in a charming, homey way. In terms of the food...EVERYTHING is good. The father was some kind of cheese specialist and so all the dishes with cheese are an expertly mixed concoction that you won’t find anywhere else. We love the manicotti! Also, loved the fennel salad and the endive salad. The zuppa di mussels in a fra di avalo sauce is hot, spicy and delectable. The portions are generous and unfortunately the price tag a bit steep.
