Abboccato Italian Kitchen Restaurant Review

: This Midtown eatery serves well-prepared Italian dishes that would make a real Italian mama proud. There’s nothing too dressed up about the plates. And that’s a good thing. Spaghetti amatriciana, tomato sauce, crispy guanciale and red onions, might emerge from a trattoria on a Roman side-street. Sardines --- in this case, of the bigger Portuguese variety --- taste like they have just been fished from the sea, while veal sweetbreads, an ultra-tender loaf, are amplified by their speck-encrusted exterior. In fact, even the side of broccoli rabe is over-salted --- just as you’d find in Italy. Desserts may include tiramisu and a pistachio sundae with a chocolate shell, whipped cream, pistachio gelato and chocolate crisps. The lengthy all-Italian wine list offers plenty of selections to wash it all down. Service is topnotch.
