Angelina’s Ristorante: “This is my number one favorite place. I like everything here, and everything Angelina makes is the best. Her Bolognese sauce is amazing, her branzini fish, her veal chop is to die for. It’s beautiful. It’s on the water. And Angelina’s also my best friend.” angelinasristorante.com

Bella Mama Rose: “They make the best pizza in Staten Island. In Brooklyn, my son AJ’s pizzeria, Ignazio’s, is the best. He’s the manager, and it’s right under the Brooklyn Bridge.” bellamamarose.com
