Times Square is not the best area to get great food, lots of restaurants focusing more on foot traffic than anything else, not caring if people would have a good time and great food, so they would come back. But there are exceptions and Tony's di Napoli is one of them. We often go to this family style Italian restaurant when people visit: the food is good and prices are quite reasonable. The last time we went was with our friends, the Yates, who came visiting. Here is what we had:
Fried calamari: deliciously crispy, not greasy and perfectly cooked, not at all rubbery.
Caprese rustica salad made with mozzarella, tomatoes and croutons:
Spaghetti with meatballs: a must have! These large meatballs are fantastic and we always order them. I wish I knew how to make them: they are tasty and not dry at all. And that sauce is delicious.
Eggplant parmesan: another great dish that we always order.
Nutella cake: normally, desserts are for 2 to 3 people, but I could not share this one...
We had a great time, with great company and great food. If you are looking for a family style Italian restaurant in Midtown, Tony's Di Napoli is the perfect plate.
Enjoy (I did)!
