Buffalo is a place that's well-known for having great Italian food, but DiTondo's never seems to get its due as part of the cream of the crop. Maybe it's their odd hours; maybe it's because of '''Chef's''', its better-known neighbor on Seneca Street, drawing folks in a block before they get here. Whatever it is, lots of locals are missing out, so don't make the same mistake they do. There's a tiny little regular menu with maybe a half-dozen options on it, mostly homestyle, unpretentious red-sauce fare — everyone loves the chicken and spaghetti parm, covered with the thickest shell of melted mozzarella you've ever seen — but the daily specials are the real heart and soul of DiTondo's, which might consist of anything from hot sandwiches, to yummy main-course salads, to pasta in a marinara sauce that lacks the overt sweetness you'll find elsewhere in Buffalo. Whatever you order, expect hefty portions for blue-collar prices — and save room for the homemade custard pies, if they have any left (they're popular!) Best of all, DiTondo's friendly, no-nonsense, super-efficient service is a godsend for first-time visitors who aren't sure what to order. It bears emphasizing that they don't accept credit cards, and Friday is the only day they open for dinner — otherwise it's lunch only, but then again, that's probably when you want to come anyway (popular with Buffalo politicos and other heavy-hitters, lunch at DiTondo's is prime time for local celebrity-spotting!)
