Any suggestion for nice/upscale Italian. A nice night out.....
There are so many good choices. What kind of food are you looking for -- italian-american, tuscan, roman, pizza/pasta, sicilian?
Some suggestions: Beppe (great tuscan), otto (pizza/pasta, cheese, good wine by the glass), apizz
My husband is into wine, so a great wine list is key. This will be a special night for us, so we would like a nice restaurant, not to be rushed.
A voce is really terrific and I didn't feel rushed at all. I got wines by the glass and they had a nice selection of Italian wines -- at fairly reasonable prices.
Sfoglia , L'Impero (new chef is a winner in my book).
And I wouldn't travel for it but if on UES I have been having some nice meals alfresco at Per Lei. Good fresh pastas and very friendly staff. A good all around Summer spot.
