My friends wanted to go to Little Italy....

They're coming from GA and wanted to have dinner in Little Italy on Friday night before they meet up with my wife and I.

While I know enough to tell them to stay away, I'm not sure I know of any good, moderately priced Italian alternatives although we often go to Noodle Pudding in Bklyn Heights or Malatesta in the West Village.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    1. I like Le Zie in Chelsea and Osteria del Sole in the WV.

        1. re: Lucia

          I definitely second Crispo. I had a wonderful dinner there last week. I posted about it.

        2. Frankies on Clinton, Max, Franks, Lil Frankies, Lupa (a tad more expensive than those), The Orchard - those should get you started.

          1. I agree with some of the previous recommendations, but why not a few more? How about Enoteca Barbone, Bianca, Apizz, or Peasant?
