Looking for great carbonara in Manhattan

I'm going to be in the city for a few days, and I've got a major craving for carbonara. Does anyone have any suggestions?

        Have to agree with Lucia and Love to Eat. Of the three, Crispo, Otto and Lupa, I'd put Crispo on the top of the list.

          I third Crispo's carbonara. Otto's I found overly salty everytime i had it.

            Finally got to Crispo a few weeks ago and - of course - had to try their Carbonara. It was excellent (and the rest of the meal was pretty good, too - loved the sausage-stuffed sage leaves).
