12212312123123112008_10_hasmaps-thumb%20%281%29%20%281%29_burg.jpgHere are 15 classic Italian restaurants in New York City. These are the unironic restaurants that have been popping up in the area since the beginning of the 20th century and, thankfully, are still going strong. They're the places that inspire restaurants like the recently opened Carbone, in the Greenwich Village. Most of them are casual red sauce joints offering classic Italian-American fare (Dominick's, La Palina, Fiorentino's), while others can be opulent (Barbetta) and exclusive (Rao's, Il Mulino). The restaurants on the following map represent neighborhoods across the city, from Don Peppe out in Ozone Park to Valentino's in Yonkers.
