Crissy D 7 Says......
Not looking for anything fany or upscale, just a really good meal. My husband and i have a night alone and I could go for yummy Italian. Any good suggestions? I prefer Central or Southern Westchester...
You and me both, Chrissyd7.
If you want good, not great, here are my current favs:
Graziella's, White Plains
Mamma Francesca, New Rochelle
Villa Nova, Pelham
Abatino's, North White Plains
Casa Rina, Thornwood
Scaramella's, Dobbs Ferry
Ernesto, White Plains
La Manda's, White Plains
Stay away from:
Gina Marie's, Tuckahoe
Bastone's, New Rochelle
Patrias is still open -- BUT under new ownership.
Also new chef. Same menu, however.
We were headed elsewhere in the area last night, but noticing Patrias was open, after Adamclyde's scary info, decided to see what was going on. We were two couples and we shared eight tapas plates. Quality seemed as high in general -- major difference noted was more garlic in oil served for bread dipping and in gambas al ajillo, not a bad thing as far as I'm concerned.
Pantanal, however, IS closed. There is a sign indicating another churrasqueria(sp?) is coming to the same spot. (Not for a while, though, given the conditiopn of the space.)
