Sounds straightforward, right? But with a dizzying array of options – everything from old-school red sauce joints to modern takes on Grandma’s homemade cooking to trattorias with gourmet pizzas -- the answer can be hard to answer.

We asked for your favorites; three have been narrowed down as part of our contest and those finalists are being profiled this week.

Voting continues until 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 28. You can vote multiple times, albeit once per day.

Grab a fork, read on, and let your fingers do the clicking. The winner will receive a framed DVlicious certificate as well as the pride in knowing it offers a taste of Italy close to home.

Aldo's Cucina, 761 Paterson Hamburg Turnpike, Wayne, (973) 872-1842

What Makes It Pasta Perfect: Chef/Owner Aldo Borrera, a Culinary Institute of America (CIA) grad, cooks with influences from his hometown of Pannarano, Italy and likes to think he brings a taste of his country to Wayne. His Southern Italian-inspired menu often features seasonal dishes as well as daily seafood specials,  and lighter lunch specials to keep up with the changing times.

Worth Special Mention: Borrera is a hands-on owner and is in the restaurant all the time. "It's a labor of love," he said of his 20-year-old eatery, a testament itself to its success. Another bonus: the restaurant is BYOB.
