Sorry rubbery overcooked beats under-seasonedyeah, agreed on that..there is a small window when it is cooked correctly...
But I find over/undercooking to be less of a problem than the salting issue...
So many times, it gets delivered to the table and the color is right and the texture is right but there is not enough flavor because there is either no salt or not enough salt. And you cannot salt it at the table. Too late.
It was awesome on North Salina. Haven't been to the new location.Anyone know anything about Atillio’s on James?
Haha, this. But I think it goes for all the restaurants on those blocks.I've been there but it was at least 3 years ago. Atmosphere is nice, quite a few wannabee high rollers at the bar. Food was okay but not memorable enough for me to go back. Francesca's would be my go to place on Salina with Asti coming in 2nd
Edit: sorry I've been to the Attillios on Salina St. if you didn't already guess that. Haven't tried the James St. place yet
riggies are great - never had it until a couple years ago , i'm told perlos in rochester gets close to the real dealGo to Avicollis and start with their beans and greens (has sausage in it too). Then order your salad with Italian and crumbly blue and have a couple rolls dipped in their oils and spices. Then order the chicken riggies with red or pink sauce (I prefer red). Then tell me you didn’t go to heaven.
I think its slightly overrated by women but its definitely pretty good. Im hard pressed to name 5 italian restaurants in the area that are consistently better. Swallowing my pride hereum...not even top 5 for italian food. Always recommended by people who don't know much though.
I had the best chicken parm I ever ate on Tuesday night at Santangelo’s. We were at a retiree party with quite a few people, so we could only choose from a limited menu. The parm and another dish were the only ones that caught my interest. In hindsight, my choice was great. Can’t wait to get it again.It was awesome on North Salina. Haven't been to the new location.
I had the same experience at Santangelo's (that's the Old Liverpool Road restaurant with the grapes on the sign, right?). It was southern Italian slop, for better or worse. Totally fine, liked my meal well enough, but I wouldn't go back when there are all those Francesca's type of options in the area.
