Now well into its third decade, this Italian eatery has real staying power, and it's easy to see why. The space, which feels like it's been made to order for the neighbors, is fueled by a quintessential red sauce, a thick gravy of tomatoes that goes well with Angelo's homemade pasta and meatballs. The spot also offers pizza, with a medium-thick crust that holds up under a generous load of toppings. But the can't-miss menu item is oysters: Offered half a dozen ways, including fried (in sliders) and grilled with chipotle-bourbon butter, they're sure to convert the most stubborn ostraconophobe.
