At Caragiulos, which is the ideal neighborhood pizza-pasta place where Italian vintage movie posters are the theme, mama still makes her own small-batch lemoncello and if you’re a regular sometimes you get a little shot at the end of the meal. Children are encouraged to craft their own pizzas (they love playing in the dough) while adults nibble house-made foccacia and peruse the array of southern Italian-American specialties. Meat balls and spaghetti, of course, but also lovely linguine with clam sauce, lasagna, and Sicilian eggplant too. Eat inside or on the covered side pavilion or in the bar room where there is usually music. Casual, convivial, straight-up good food and personal attention by servers who have been there for years. Some of them know your name.
