I'm confused by this. I'm an Italian American living in NYC for 33 years. Don't want to completely hate, but this is by no means a representation of NYC Italian food. I put this in the category of The Olive Garden. I just hope you read this if you are not from NYC. New Yorkers don't actually eat here. If you want real Italian, there are hundreds of better restaurants. Take a look on Zagats and filter by Italian and you will find better choices.
