It's pretty safe to say that since we live in the tri-state area, you can find good Italian in every neighborhood. But if you want THE BEST Italian, you need to make your way over to Staten Island to visit my friends at Aunt Butchies of Brooklyn! I legitimately drove three hours from Long Island just to get my hands on some of their mouth watering meatballs and every dish that I tried was EXCELLENT!
Some of my other personal favorites? The mozzarella caprese Aunt Butchies Style, Spaghetti al Forno & you can't go wrong with the Pete's salad! You won't be able to leave without having at least a little taste of their fresh baked breads, pastries and cookies that line the wall of the adorable café!
If you haven't had the chance to try Aunt Butchies, we are hooking you up with gift certificates to try it for yourself!
Head over to Instagram, follow Aunt Butchies and KTU and comment with #iheartthis and we'll pick four lucky winners that will be treated to the meal of a lifetime from our friends at Aunt Butchies! Hope you love it just as much as I do!
