Italian in the 40's

  • b

I am trying to think of the name of an Italian
restaurant around W. 45th. It is popular and upscale.
Need reservations. Can anyone help?

  1. There are several good Italian places on Restaurant Row
    and further west. The best of them may be Orso, on
    W.46th. You need reservations well in advance.

      I recommedn Osteria al Doge west 44th st. Novocello 55th and 8th ave., remi 53rd near 7th ave., trattoria del arte 57th and 7th, always a solid meal,

        I had pre-theater dinner at Novocello not long ago.
        It was pretty good, with two exceptions: The risotto
        (one of their daily specials) was pre-made and suffered
        badly for it, and their service fell to pieces when we
        tried to order to coffee and dessert. On a quiet
        night, I expect I'd enjoy it, as long as I stick to the
        pasta specials.
