Gargiulo's Restaurant Review

: If you’re not part of the family when you enter Gargiulo’s, you will be by the time you leave. This traditional Italian eatery, located just two blocks from the frenetically busy Coney Island boardwalk, is the real “red sauce” deal. While the room feels more like a catering hall than a taverna, the tuxedoed waiters and dress code make no pretense when it comes to seriously fun dining. This is the place for starters like shrimp cocktail; prosciutto and melon; and baked clams. Main dishes include a super fresh pasta carbonara; the ubiquitous veal Marsala; many varieties of risotto; and the luscious lobster fra diavolo. On any given night, birthday and anniversary celebrations will punctuate the evening, and around the corner you may get a glimpse of the busy event area where bands and dancers while the night away. Desserts are a must and the tortoni, spumoni and tartufo might make the average diner gasp with childish delight. When you’re finished, saunter over to the carnival satisfied with the knowledge that you’ve had a much better dining experience than those in line at Nathan’s.
