        1. I really like Il Sogno (http://www.sanantoniojoe.com/2009/12/...) along with Little Italy. I need to get out to Tre' as I heard that is the bomb.

          1. There is a small place on Evers Road named Piccolo's. The owner/chef (now deceased) was part of the early, early Paesano's and took the ideas and preparation with him. They have the absolute BEST manicotta in town. Their red sauces have a full bodied "fresh" tomatoey taste and not heavy.

              Great little restaurant! It's been around forever. The portions are huge! My wife and I usually order an appetizer, split the lasagna, and order an additional salad. The salads are really amazing, as well as the bread. The only bad thing about this place is the service is completely awful. They try and have a 4 star feel, but it's obvious that no one in the place has had any real waiting experience or training. The food certainly makes up for it, and despite the poor service, the owner is always there, and is always friendly and
              accommodating.
