Christmas Eve dinner in the hood?

Hi Hounds,
We are looking for a festive, preferably Italian restaurant, rustic food for husband & 12 year old. This year we are looking for something not exactly upscale, as I was laid off last month, but rather a place that is celebrating good cheer, something we could all use this year!
Thanks & Happy Holidays!

        Give Red Rose a call in Caroll Gardens and see if they'll be open. I don't know if you're going to be in luck regarding Italian; any Italian worth his Trapani sea salt is going to be at home cooking up a storm on Christmas Eve (I know I'll be.)
