You tell us: Where to eat like the Sopranos

To celebrate the final season of the hit HBO series, we’re asking you where – in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky – to eat like Tony and his family. You know, a place with real Old Italian atmosphere, just like Nuovo Vesuvio on the show, where you can get tender veal scaloppine and tasty macaroni and gravy. Send name of restaurant, why you think Tony would approve, your name and daytime phone number to cmartin@enquirer.com. Deadline: April 20. (Or just post your comments below.) Thanks!

This is an interesting question, one that my wife and I have been discussing over the last couple of months. We hadn’t ever watched the Sopranos until January when we decided to Netflixx all 6 seasons. We are just about to finish catching up this week. We have only 2 episodes to go. You can’t watch the Sopranos without coming away with a craving for good Italian food. As far as the local restaurants, I am really looking forward to the comments. Off the top of head I was thinking Scotti’s.

Pompillo's in Newport is the obvious place. Newport even has a rich history tied to gambling and the mob. It would be a perfect fit.

Tony WAS into sushi during one of the past seasons... It was a kick!
So most of Tony's meal scenes were in a fish house...

Barresi’s Italian restaurant in Deer Park. Great food, great service...plus lots of little side rooms where "business" can be conducted in private.
