At Cascone's on North Oak Trafficway, the servers — all dressed in black and wearing neckties — deliver the same lasagna that made the restaurant famous, while older male bartenders, under the red lights in the cocktail lounge, pour expensive Italian wines from the “Captain’s List.” Most accurately described as “1984 Italian-American classy,” Cascone's may lack sleek trattoria trendiness, but the family photos by the front door and never-ending loop of Sinatra and Martin create an ambience that is the reason we like this place, which has been around for 56 years. Cascone's closes at 9 p.m. on weekdays and 10 p.m. on weekends, so stop by early for a glass of Chianti and a cannoli.

Restaurant Details

Sure, the place feels like an Italian restaurant from the 1950s, with its spacious dining room all done up in Sinatra-era glamour. But the menu still consists of comforting, hearty immigrant dishes. Polish off some Roma bread and butter and a chilled Italian salad, then pounce on a big plate of lasagna, ravioli and fettuccine, the garlicky chicken Amogio or mildly spiced Italian sausage cooked up with roasted peppers, onions and potatoes. You’ll feel as if you had been fed by a loving grandmother. — Charles Ferruzza
