Squire's Italian Restaurant dishes out an eclectic menu of heaping, hearty pizzas and pastas under the watchful eyes of Bob and Lorenzo Romiti, who took up the mantle after their parents built the restaurant more than half a century ago. Gratify growling bellies with a comforting bowl of cream of crab soup ($6) or a plate of steamed mussels in a white-wine and garlic sauce ($8.25) before indulging in Squire's homemade lasagna ($10.25) or imported tortellini, which melts local cheeses with its flawless pronunciation and thin mustache ($8.75). A children's menu featuring an assortment of pastas served with tomato sauce ensures overstuffed offspring ($6.25–$7.95), while carnivorous comfort-seekers can dig their knives into a land and sea platter, which find a quintet of shrimp landlocked on a 6-ounce island of New York strip ($21.95). Squire's menu also boasts a formidable selection of wines, cocktails, and beers, as well as a modest collection of aperitifs, which ease pleased palates into a state of pacified slumber ($4.25–$8.50).
