      If you aren't on a budget and want to have a great Northern Italian meal go to Da Umberto on 17th and 6th. They have been around for decades and are one of the most consistent (if not trendy) places I frequent.

      Mauritzio on 13th between fifth and sixth is a local west villager that has very good food and is less pricey.

      Also, there is a great little intimate spot called La Cantina on 8th and Jane.

        Crispo, Arezzo (some disagree, but I have been happy there many times and taken others who loved it), Le Zie, Supper (no res and casual but great), Perbacco.
