Any good Italian spots in the east, east 80's (2nd ave to east end) in the 80s, not too expensive? Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the recommendations... we ended up going to Maruzella, very good. The wife's Italian, even she liked it

      Triangelo's on 83rd btwn 2nd & 3rd Ave has very good Italian food. I also like Maruzzella very much.

        Go to Maruzzella. It's not quite in the 80's (78th and 1st Ave) but soooo good. In addition to the regular menu, their list of nightly specials is almost as large as the menu itself. I'm very picky (snobby even?) when it comes to good Italian food (nothing compares to my mom's cooking) but this was very good.

          Tony's Di Napoli on 83rd/2nd is a family style Italian restaurant. I've been with just one other person and shared an appetizer and entree, and have also been with a big group where we ordered 3-4 entrees and all shared. It's always great!

              Grotta Del Mare (307 E. 77th btw 2nd and 3rd) was great. Very affordable and we were seated right away on a Saturday night around 8. Portions are just right.

                Firenze is pretty good and affordable. Service is always very good. It's at 2nd Avenue between 82nd and 83rd.
