If you want a place that feels like a mid-90s New Jersey Italian restaurant, then you might as well go to Nico, a place that, for some reason, plays mid-90's movies about New Jersey Italian restaurants behind the bar (with no sound). The North End restaurant has a pretty traditional red sauce menu and a decent wine list that helps make up for the fact that it doesn’t have a full liquor license. It’s not bad for a casual meal, but there are better places nearby with similar menus.
