Jersey City Italian

I remember some recommendations on this board for Pronto Cena, and Casa Dante. But no one mentioned Laico's - I've heard that's good. Any opinions?

  1. Laico's is truly fabulous, only there are no reservations, and it REALLY gets crowded. Make sure you go to the Laico's off Kennedy Blvd, though; there are two Laico's; this one is in an old house, overlooking the "slopes" of J.C.
    But...don't overlook Presto's, a small gem in Paulus Hook, on Warren Street. Also like Laico's, it takes no reservations; they make a puttanesca that can't be beat, and TO ORDER -- fresh. Gotta go, and bring your own booze.
