Over 100 years old, Bamonte's is a classic old-school Italian restaurant. The bartender's been working there for over 50 years, and the place is filled with loyal patrons and old decor that hasn't been altered for decades. It's a fixed place in time, and that goes without mentioning the fact that mobsters do, in fact, hang out there. Write it off as ambiance. People-watching aside, the dishes at Bamonte's are amazing, from pasta to eggplant Rollatini, to classic antipasti platters. It's impossible to go wrong. -Liz Barclay
