Opened in 1918 as a speakeasy, Guarino’s is strictly old school Little Italy. Founded by a Sicilian immigrant, it has passed down through family members and friends, each with a connection to the previous proprietor. Its Victorian décor and grapevine-adorned garden provide a warm setting for the traditional Italian food it serves. You won’t be surprised by the selections here — wedding soup and fried calamari as starters; main courses like fettucini alfredo, ravioli, lasagne, and eggplant, veal or chicken parmigiana that are as familiar as your own name. Stop in the lounge for cocktails and sweets too. You also shouldn’t be surprised to hear some Frank Sinatra tunes accompanying your meal.
