This restaurant is a beloved Staten Island favorite, so it’s no wonder that, on any given day, one can find Vinny, the owner and head chef, greeting his regulars. (Vinny catered my wedding, so as far as I’m concerned, we’re family). The Italian restaurant and bakery has tin ceilings, bistro seating, bakery cases, a large commercial kitchen, and large plate glass doors that open to the sidewalk. For shoots: These floor-to-ceiling windows are perfect for some mobster to be pushed through and the creepy basement would be great for a murder. For events: This place is pretty and cozy and perfect for a bridal or baby shower.
