any suggestions for cute italian restaurants in either the East Village or Alphabet City?
Cacio e Pepe, Barbone, Max
Lucia, how do you like Max? It was recommended to me, but I never got a chance to go.
Truth be told, I haven't been in about a year, but the giant meatball was really good. The prices are very reasonable, so it can't hurt to try.
Frank on 2nd ave and 5th...cheap, amazing gnocchi, spaghetti and meatballs, black ink spaghetti with shellfish, rigatoni with pork and sausage ragu, etc. It's cute, kinda cramped inside but has outdoor seating.
Supper on the corner of 2nd and A (on 2nd) is very yummy, cheap and very nice atmoshphere.
i concur with frank and supper... i think frank is much better though
Second Barbone. Also In Vino, Perbacco Cafe, Cafe Emilia.
I like Il Bagatto, might be a little bit of a wait, but worth it. That said, anything suggested in this thread would be worth it.
Third on Barbone, though Cacio e Pepe is good too.
I really like Bar-bo-ne. Instead of writing about it, though, I'll direct you to a recent post about it with some rave reviews: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/407607
Cacio e Vino: my new fav Italian in the area
Max or Frank. Max is good for groups while Frank is a hellish nightmare of death and destruction for groups.
