Hello. How long should I expect to wait on Friday night at 7pm for a table for 2 at Radicchio? Can anyone recommend a similar BYO that takes reservation. I've been to La Viola and love it, but we're looking for something a little different.

    Radicchio is wonderful and worth the wait. You might get lucky this weekend. They do have some outside seating. Alternatively try Caffe Casta Diva, Bronzino or Tre Scalini.

      I had a good experience at Ava and they do take reservations. I know with the summer being here, tables may be a bit easier to get on the weekend now because everyone goes to the shore.

      Anyway, I was very impressed with the food and service at Ava.

        I heartily agree with the three recommendations by joluvscards.

        Here are two others:

        August, 13th and Wharton. Cash only. I like this place so much that I hate to share it! Delicious food, topnotch service.

        Fitzwater Cafe, 7th & Fitzwater. We had a very good dinner here last week. The pastas were excellent.

        Since these two places are off the beaten track, you may have a decent chance of getting a reservation.

        Good luck!
