    Haven't been in a couple of years, but I used to think it had great calamari and terrific iiguini with clam sauce. If you go, please let us know whether or not it still does.

      Thanks. We may check it out on manana (Wednesday 8/30). Will post my thoughts - - but I'm still open for feedback for anyone that wants to add their two cents.

      I haven't eaten here in ages but the one dish we always got was the fried shrimp with medium/hot sauce and biscuits. Just be warned, the hot sauce is very hot.

      I've also heard good things about their seafood salad but have never tried it myself.

        Great clams on the half shell of course and great veal parmigiana heros!

              A little over priced for an average menu but a they make good red sauce. The shrimp parm hero is something worth trying if you dont mind forking out 17 dollars.

                Don't know if you're the type, but it has imho the best chicken parm hero in NYC.

                  Wow. Thanks for all of the great feedback. My folks just cancelled dinner tentatively to next week, so those of you that are interested - - check back sometime next week for my personal review.

                  I'm still open for suggestions either way. Thanks again.
