Joanne, run by Joe Germanotta, whose daughter happens to be Lady Gaga, is a neighborhood trattoria on a beautiful tree-lined street on the Upper West Side. Home-spun Italian dishes like spaghetti and meatballs, linguini with clam sauce and Joanne's meatballs dominate the menu along with steaks and seafood dishes. Desserts include red velvet cake, and zeppoles with a chocolate and hazelnut dipping sauce.
