Searching for great Enoteca Italian near midtown

Hi Chowhounds,

I'm heading to NYC in 2 weeks and I'm looking for a great italian eating experience to share with my girl. We'll be staying about 2 blocks from Times Square.

Authenticity isn't as much of a priority as a great experience overall, including a fun space and not too loud. I'd like to try Babbo but from what I've read, a reservation two weeks out isn't possible. Is that right?

Any good recommendations?

  1. Babbo saves a few tables for early walk in's every night. That means that you have to be there at 5Pm- when the bar opens, Tell them that you want a table for dinner. They'll seat you at at 5:30.
