Mr. Martino’s Trattoria
A humble Italian restaurant, Mr. Martino’s has been serving pasta and red sauce (gravy, as some call it in the region) for over two decades in a former hardware store with tin ceilings. At this cash-only joint, reservations are recommended, since they’re only open three days a week: Friday through Sunday.
