Dear Mr. Coney Island...
In the early '30's my dad lived in Coney Island, my grandfather, Alessandro Barboni had a restaurant (no one can remember what is was called or where it was). We believe that he (my grandfather) may have had a partnership with Guffanti's. Was there ever a Guffanti's at Coney Island? If so, where was it located. Grandpa closed up shop and moved in around 1932. Thanks for your help.

Hello Liz,

Here is a photograph of Guffanti's Inn at Coney Island and an earlier advertisement.



Thanks for the photo! My great grandfather worked here as a waiter in 1916. He eventually went on to open his own restaurant in New Jersey, near Lakehurst.
