Try Daniel's on the parkway. Try Bella Cuchina. Italian Cafe on Mohawk and James st. The Restaurant next to the Stanley. Giorgios. If you are not a true Italian, then what the heck would you know! Different parts of Italy cook a little differently. We are not just meat and potatoes people. You have no idea what you are talking. You are probably so used to Ragu that when you try something true Italian it doesn't taste. Spread your wings you poor soul!!
i have tried all restaurants you mentioned and I think they are fine and have enjoyed them all except aqua vino in north utica did not like the service at all and food was not exceptional for prices.

Down state or New York City ITalians are wonder bread italians. they never grew their own veggies or made their own wine, upstate Italians are as close as you are going to get to native Italians from Italy. Utica Italians are probally the best Italian cooks you will fina in America. every family had their own way of making dishes that came from heaven. And one last thing to mention, for all you people who think you are better than Italians here is some news for you, no culture on earth has contributed to man kind as much as the Italians., Marconi, Enrico Fermi, Michelangelo, Sinatra, Dean Martin, Robert Deniro, Al Pacino, JOe Dimaggio, Sophia Loren, Gina Lollabrigada, Lee Iacoca,Rocky Marciano, Davinci, Sardi, Mamma Leones, LaGuardia, Rocky Graziano, Jake LaMotta, Enzo Ferrari,Picasso, Lamborgini, Maserati, Pizza, Canoli, Braccioli, just to name a few things related to Italy. By the way there are 2 kind of people in the world, Italians and those who want to be Italians.

As I thought, you cannot hang with me this topic. Incidently, no one else has refuted my claim about peasant cuisine, either.

Got to Herkimer and visit "The GodFather's Hideout" located on Protection Ave. It's the street just opposite of Hannaford on State Street. Family owned, food is great and the prices are very reasonable.

If this is true then Italy must be a ghetto. There are 2 types of people. You have Italians and then you have honest people.

that is the best way to describe these friggin people from upstate ny. They are way behind te times. I heard that disco is finally making its way up there. As for the restaurants,stay away. Most foodcoming out those restaurants is already cooked ,then frozen. They dont use good ingredients let alone fresh ingredients. They reuse food taken from tables,and most importantly they cook in filth. So add all that together ad you get upstate farmer bastard slop
