Good Restaurant in WTC area
The ambience could be better, but Pierino's on Reade
Street has marvelous food. The cuisine is that of
Campania, Italy. Try the anchovies for an appetizer,
then a small order of pasta, after that the roast
rabbit, then ice cream and lastly a cup (or two) of
espresso made "restretto'. I enjoy the Taurasi Reserve
whenever I go there. Ask Maurizio to help you order
and you will think that you are in Italy when the
lemonjello comes to the table--well almost!

Head Over to Warren Street...
For Italian food.....really great Italian food, there's
Il Giglio on Warren Street.
Il Giglio has an extraordinary pedigree.....it is the
prodigy of Il Mulino in the Village, the consistent
Zagat #1 Italian Restaurant in New York....and America.
The food is similar (although nothing can touch Il
Mulino's Veal Chop) and, if you can afford the "pricy
for the area" menu, you'll invariably have an excellent
meal well-served by a team of thorough professionals.
