    Just off rte. 6 in Mahopac (one town away from you) there is a small place called Arianna's. It is the real deal italian restaurant. The best part about it is the owner. He will make you anything you want off the menu and his ingredients are fresh. He talks to everyone like family and tells you "relax, don't worry". There are no reservations, so if you get there late, you'll wait. Seating outside in the summer.

    Also, for a chic, nyc like place, try 121 Restaurant in North Salem (I think). The food is consistently good and interesting. The atmosphere is great and the people are pretty. Also, no reservations for less than 6 people.

    Both are very different restaurants. Both are very good choices.

      Sorry, made a mistake. The restaurant is called Ariano's. It is located at 18 Clark Place Mahopac. The # is (845)621-0137.

    2. The Blazer Pub
      Route 22
      Purdys, NY 10578
      (914) 277-4424

      Excellent waitstaff. Nice round bar for drinks as you wait to be seated. Great burgers, and *HUGE* steak fries. Kid friendly restaurant too.

        This is an inexpensive place, but boy howdy, it's the best.

      2. I like Purdy's, Stoneleigh Creek, Bloom's Deli, and Jaipore. They are all within ten minutes of Somers.

        1. Maybe each of those within 10 minutes of the Somers border, but no way are Jaipore and Bloom's within 10 minutes of each other! I guess depending on where the OP is, one of them MIGHT be within 10 minutes of them.

          1. We're going to have to try that Ariano's place.. I had someone else (whose opinion on food I do not necessarily trust) also recommend it. We like Dante's in the A&P shopping center. Not great, but reliable. Gino's (I think that is the name) on Route 6 just before Ariano's is also supposed to be good.
