Looking for a moderately priced place to have dinner before my daughter's HS graduation at the Trenton Arena. Any suggestions?

    Settimo Cielo for good, old school Italian.

      We ended up here and all loved it! Can't wait to go back!

      Amici Milano's http://www.amicimilano.com , last of the old school Italian restaurants in the Burg.

      Rossi's http://www.rossiburger.com , noted for their burgers but all their food is great.

      Papa's http://www.papastomatopies.com , oldest tomato pie (pizza) place in the country. It's BYOB.

        What time does the graduation start and where are you coming from? How close do you want to be to the arena?

          If you can go just a little bit outside of Trenton, Enzo's in Lawrenceville is a terrific Italian restaurant.

            Just had another thought--Malaga, a Spanish restaurant right in Trenton, is always a great place to go.

              Another place comes to mind that's not too far from the Arena. It's the Revere restaurant on River Rd. See http://www.revereristorante.com/ .
