Any recommendations for old-school fried calamari?

Looking for a recommendation for calamari fritti, maybe served with a cup of spicy marina sauce along side.

    1. first make sure it's not pork bung. apparently a large percent of "calamari" is actually pig rectum and no one can tell the difference

            i was kidding. sorry it wasn't obvious :)

          2. Rubirosa is about the best I've had, perfectly fried and tender, with a good sauce.
