TUFANO’S VERNON PARK TAP scored a 4

Okay. We’ve been here about a million times, including the previous generation. It’s a family business.  They know us.  They know our friends. They know what we order.  The food is good solid Italian-American food which is not the same as Italian.

We usually order: Tufano special salad which is head lettuce with a bunch of delicious stuff in it; the fried calamari; the mussels in red sauce as an appetizer and with linguini for the main course, the eggplant (one of the best in the city); shells and broccoli with olive oil and garlic; great vegetarian option; the cavatelli;  the raspberry tartufo; sometimes a nice meatball on the side. Great neighborhood atmosphere.  Great value.  It’s the real Italian-American deal. Cash only.

Cuisine and style of dining: Italian-American and just what you’d expect.
