We've been in NYC for 2 weeks and an old friend took us to his favorite restaurant since 1958! I have to admit that everything he said about the place was true. Great food. Great service. We shared the Mozzarella, prosciutto & roasted peppers (the way mozzarella should be served....I hate tomatoes.). With a little olive oil drizzled over it, it was divine. Pasta course was Fusilli Carciofi (artichokes in white wine & garlic). We each had a main course. They were all well made and huge (We all took leftovers). We had veal marsala w/mushrooms, a veal chop special and a shrimp with crab risotto special. Cannoli were freshly made with a bit of a nutmeg taste that was different and tasty. Thank god they had minis. Don't think I could have done a whole one. This place is close to the subway stop, but has a huge, secure parking lot across the street. The dining room is a huge, old world kind of space, and has been a fixture in the neighborhood since 1907! We had eaten at places in Bay Ridge, on Arthur Ave. and several in Hell's Kitchen. Gargiulo's was the best of all of them.
