Best Italian Restaurant (Cheap)

Anthonino's Taverna

A few disclaimers before we "cheap" we mean "affordable." By "Italian Restaurant" we in no way mean to imply that Anthonino's Taverna serves Italian cuisine exclusively; the ownership duo of Anthony and Rosario Scarato encompasses both Greek and Italian heritage, and their restaurant's menu reflects that fact in a big way. (The spanakopita, the horiatiki salata and the gyros are to die for, just for starters.) All right, is everybody ready? Anthonino's pizzas begin with a delicious, hand-tossed crust that's not deep dish but certainly isn't "Ritz cracker" either. Pastas come with a lip-smacking housemade marinara. Nearly any entrée you select, be it based on chicken, steak or seafood, will set you back $15 to $20. Order with care and your party of two can settle the tab with two Andrew Jacksons — and receive sufficient change to wash down dinner with a cold Peroni on draft. Buon appetito!
