simple Great italian Food

  • 3

This was my second try of Cafe Longo on Atewlls Ave. It didnt dissapoint just clean simple italian family food. Only italians would know the quality of theSundays Family Meal was the flavor, combinations of textures the noise of laughter I have not had this type of american Italian food in years. Well only in Italy can compare, This place is fun people start singing and eating just like a large 50 seat family because thats what the place holds. Some of the Atwells restaurants are totally pretentious usually loading up the food with tons of garlic and an overdose of olive oil. The food is carefully prepared and not wildly driven from the kitchen, you have to wait a bit all pastas are cooked to order from dry Dececco Pasta. So the final word is its crowded, fun, classically prepared food and great owners floating around the dining room seeing that everyone is happy.
