Near the airport good Italian

I'm going to spend a few days near the airport and want some authentic east coast Italian food.

Always heard of east coast Italian and since I will be there where should I go but only 10 minutes or so from the airport.

  1. Are you going to have a car?

    1. Is a relatively short taxi ride is possible?

        1. It's only a 10-15 minute drive to just about anywhere in the southeastern corner of the city from the airport - and most of the red-sauce italian places are in that general area. You can do it easily. If you don't get any recommendations I suggest you search this board for "red-sauce italian." You'll be able to get to most people's favorites (I've eaten at one such place in my 12 years here so I can't help beyond that)

          1. Popi's is pretty close to the airport and is a pretty good red-sauce Italian place: http://www.popisrestaurant.com/
