    Felidia isn't really UES, it's below 59th. I like Elio's and Petaluma.

      Ditto Felidia!

      On UWS, a low-key place called "La Vela" on Amsterdam & 78th-ish. Nothing fancy, but good prices and consistently homey, good food.

        West = 'Cesca
        East = Felidia, L'Impero, Coco Pazzo

            UES Felidia (well, maybe more Midtown-East but it's Lydia B!); UWS 'Cesca...don't miss their risotto, I could have licked the plate if the servers hadn't made me feel like a VIP!

              Elios on 85th and 2nd Ave- spectacular! great veal dishes, great pastas, great tortellini in brodo, one of my favorite italian restaurants in nyc. loud, tough to get a table (i have eaten next to mel brooks and anne bankroft, barbara walters, martha stewart, and a host of other celebs, but it is a quiet humble spot)- always packed, pretty $$$, worth it. enjoy fb
