Looking for special Italian Restaurant

Going to be in NYC next week with my husband. We are looking for a special Italian Restaurant. We LOVE Il Mulino but we were just ther eabout a month ago. I kow every neighborhood has a decent one but I was looking for something new or special. Any area is fine. Thanks!

  1. Babbo, but you won't be able to get in on one week's notice.
    Try Scalinatella.

    1. Crispo on 14th - with a week's notice you should be able to get a reservation on a weekday though at a weekend prime time might be tougher. The food is amazing - do a search on the board for this place and you'll see a lot of endorsement. The dining room can feel a little cramped and loud but in a great, fun way. Be sure to get the spaghetti carbonara.

      1. L'Impero, on Tudor City Pl., b/t 42nd & 43rd Sts., has excellent modern Italian cuisine, good service, and a very attractive space with romantic ambiance. If you go, do not miss the seriously delicious polenta with wild mushrooms.

        1. Novita in Gramercy. Absolutely sick!!

          1. Apizz on the LES or Sfoglia on the UES. Il Postino on 49th is also quite good.
