    My favorite places to have it are Vico/Sette Mezzo (related owners) on the UES.

      I liked the version at Elio's, also on the UES.

      MMRuth, have you ever been there and if so, what do you think about the food? (It is very noisy at peak hours)

        I haven't been there for about 14 years, and was only there once. No recollection about the food, seemed to be a bit of an air kissing place, as I recall (not that Sette Mezzo isn't!).

          Thanks..I just noticed your response! Elio's is very air kissy, and noisy, but they do have good food. Is there any place on the UES with consistently good Italian food that is NOT horribly noisy and where I can hope to get a table with a few day's notice?

            Too funny, too true. I don't think Sfoglia and Spigolo are like that, but it's hard to get a reservation.

              Hi Erica:

              I always have good pasta dishes at Per Lei. I know the owners just opened a new place in the old Panorama. Haven't been yet, but friends have said it's very good.

            I am soooo with you on Don Peppe. Hands down my favorite other than my own!

          I had it at 2 places and found them to be great at both places: Campanile and Nino's of Tuscany.
