    La Foccaceria, 1st Ave near St.Marks Place. Nothing fancy...but truly authentic, homestyle Sicilian cooking.

      i never realized that place was sicilian, but i've always loved it and considered it an unknown gem. glad to hear others are working to keep them in business. I reccomend the mozzarella in carozza, and the string bean salad.

      The best Sicilian in all of NYC is at Joes of Avenue U in both Brooklyn and Staten Island. They also have a gluten free Staten Island Location.
