Italian cuisine is the type of food that sticks to your ribs. If you just suffered a break up from the love of your life, a big plate of pasta is pretty much guaranteed to make you feel better. Tired of eating salads and rabbit food on your diet? Grab a plate of Italian food and be prepared to settle into a comfy food coma. My favorite Italian dish is probably fettuccine alfredo or chicken (or eggplant) parmesan. The folks over at loveFOOD have put together a list of the best Italian restaurants in each state. I was definitely intrigued to find out which one topped the list for New York. loveFOOD says,

Most people agree that fresh ingredients make for a good Italian restaurant. There is no comparison between fresh pasta and that boxed stuff most school cafeterias use, right? Then you add in fresh tomatoes, vegetables, basil, spices cheeses, and proteins...suddenly you're in Heaven!

Patsy's Italian Restaurant in NYC has been serving up Italian classics since 1944. Frank Sinatra, who often sang at the restaurant, was a regular and now has a private dining room named after him. Patsy's prides itself on serving simple, unpretentious comfort food, such as spaghetti meatballs, linguine with clam sauce, and veal Milanese with arugula – reportedly Franks's favorite dish.
