“I love this place,” says critic Lyman Chen of Ristorante Attilio. “The pasta is second to none, and I love the lasagna, but you must try Attilio’s smelts.” Ristorante Attilio is the place families celebrate major events and the guys get together for beers. The place isn’t fancy—walls are covered in dark paneling and the tables are the kind your grandma had—but it feels just like home. And nowhere will you find better Italian wedding soup, pepper-and-egg sandwiches, or chicken Parmigiana. And all that pasta is homemade.
