Anyone have suggestions for some good places around east 79th st. I'm sick of the old stand-bys. I was thinking Spigolo but there are no reservations. Has anyone been to vestpa?

    Haven't been but a co-worker just went to Firenze and said it was really good.

    My rec would be Elio's

          I've been to Vespa, it's really not that great...unless it's warm out and you can sit in their backyard (which is very nice). Mangiarini is good...
