Location Description:

This obscure Williamsburg old-timer, one of Brooklyn's great repositories of Italian-American cuisine, is even better than we remembered it. The baked clams are superb, eight of varying size heaped with seasoned breadcrumbs laked in heavenly cooking juices, but the eggplant rollatini ("stuffed eggplant" on the menu) is every bit as good, oozing the most perfect ricotta you've ever tasted. Entrée-wise, go for the Sicilian chicken or the veal, house-style, which melts mozzarella over four patties in a zesty, lemon-laced sauce. Pastas are profuse and delicious. The bunker-like premises are straight out of the Joe McCarthy 1950s.
