Santina is owner John Petralia's Mom. She's 88 and her namesake restaurant opened in 1988. This informal pizzeria/pasta-teria-plus is tablecloth-free and packed on weekends. The kitchen covers a familiar range of Italian-American specialties, to eat in and to take out. Some recommendations: the baked combination of stuffed shells, manicotti, ravioli and tortellini Parmigiana; chicken alla paesana, with mushrooms and potatoes; calzones; wood-fired, brick-oven pizzas.
