hello all -
i am trying to get together a group of picky people for dinner and figure italian is always a safe bet - i've seen so many places along ninth avenue (40s and 50s) but its hard to tell whats good and whats mediocre.
does anyone have any recommendations?
thanks so much!
I don't have a better reccomendation to make, but I ate at Pietrasanta last night and was underwhelmed. Nothing was bad - the service was quite good for pre-theatre rush - the price was right - but the food was just ok. The calamari in my dish was lovely, sweet, and tender, but nothing else worth praising.
I enjoy Amarone, east side of Ninth Ave, betw/45-46th. They have expanded and are able to serve more diners now, lovely menu, although it can get a little noisy.
Anna's It is a really small place. It used to open
only for dinners, now they have started doing Lunch too.
