No, I do NOT work there. So what if it's run by Muslims? Or Mormons? Or Christians? The food is really, really good. And so is the service.

I will admit, though, I sure would like a restaurant to open up with good home cookin' food--like fried chicken, mashed potatoes with from-scratch cream gravy, baked ham, greens, made-from-scratch mac'n'cheese, peach pie, etc.

They're not Albanian, they're from Yugoslavia, and chefs from there are known to cook outstanding Northern Italian cuisine. Look at your map ----that will explain it to you!

The former Yugoslavia encompassed many counties...Kosovo, part of Serbia (part of old Yugoslavia) is mostly muslim Albanians. That's what Clinton's wag-the-dog war was all about. He sided with the Albanians in Serbia, who, during WWII, were fighting alongside the Nazis and against US! Since Clinton's phony war, this country has been besieged with Muslim Albanian refugees.

Read your geography, history, and demographics, you mor-on!

The phony, muslim Albanian-owned Italian restaurants don't even have real Italian names associated with them (except Castello and Della Francesca). All those names, Barca, Spasi, Prespa, Rraci are Albanian in nature.

Their food is not real Italian food, but rather, Nouveau Italian. Anyone can make it...even you.

And, lots of muslim Albanians in this country send money back home to Kosovo, Macedonia, etc.(former Yugoslavia) to fund the KLA (the Albanian terrorist organization, which is on the U.S. State Department's list of terrorist organizations).

I'm shocked that his cockhurtz so bad he needs to get online and be a moron for just a few minutes each day. Dude, go to the doctor already.

The next time I go out to eat, I will make sure that wherever I am (Italian, French, German) the chefs in the kitchen are from that very same land. Lord knows people from other countries cannot follow recipes to the same specifications as those from the mother country. Are you guys kidding, or what??? Have you ever watched Iron Chef? The Food Channel? You have English people cooking Japanese, German people cooking Indian food- it's amazing. You should all get out more.

Yourcockispuny- would this be the same war that the Republicans said 'hey, why go stop ethnic cleansing? Do you have an exit strategy? Who is going to pay for this mess?'.

Just wondering.

******This just in*****

A group of African refugees from war-ravaged Kenya has arrived in Danbury, and they plan on opening an Authentic Italian restaurant called; "Koobooyanga". The refugees have laughed-off criticism that they aren't really Italians by saying that they once saw a group of Italians in their native country, and that, upon seeing the group from Italy, suddenly realized that they, themselves, were Italian all along but hadn't realized it.

Although it was hard to understand what they were saying because of their thick, Italian accents, they said that they plan on decorating the restaurant in traditional Italian motif found in many parts of the world including Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia (former Yugoslavia).....and even Italy.

They will play traditional Italian music typically heard in Mexico to create the mood.

Acknowledging that they will initially need help from other "authentic" Italian entrepreneurs, the refugees said that they will hire native-born Italians from India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Syria, Egypt, and Turkey who have since relocated to Danbury.

Get ready for some genuine, authentic Italian fare.

Reiterating current events/history found even in the pages of The New York Times is considered "racist" by you?!

You better stop relying on the Sunday comics section for your news source.

What an absolutely, ignorant ba$tard you are.

At least when you go into a Greek restaurant, you know they are Greeks who are running the place.
I'm tired of Albanians passing themselves off as Italian with made-up Italian-sounding names like Barca's "Tony Ramadani" (Ramadani = Ramadan + i)- again, they're all Muslim.
Are you a Jew who doesent like muslims, like Americans give a shit if your Jewish, Muslim or Christian. Get a life prejudice peice of shit.

Go to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx or to some of the better places in New Haven and compare for yourself. If there's no guy named Vinny or Sal in the kitchen, it's fake.

for all the ignorant people in here...NOT ALL ALBANIANS ARE MUSLIM, for those idiots that need this lesson, looky here, there are many italian muslims in sicily, alot of greek muslims in the united states and greece itself, trust me, the albanians dont give a shit about islam, infact, more albanians than you think or know are still loyal to the old roman catholic church, albanians were and still are a big influence on the church, ive had muslim albanian friends for years now and i swear to god they look like catholic irish germans
