Hi,

Looking for a place that takes reservations so the wait is limited. I already know about carmines, any other suggestions?

    either location of Tony's di Napoli would be a good option, and you can make a reservation online.

      Literally, pick anything at random and it would be better than Carmine's.
      If Chef Boyardee were cooking is about the only way it might be worse.

        He was at Del Posto the night we ate there.

        Da Andrea, Malatesta and Aurora Soho are a few of my faves.

          Aroma has a great private room downstairs. The staff is great and will work with you to develop the appropriate menu

            I highly recommend reserving a table in one of the private nooks at Bacaro in Chinatown. Some of the private tables there can accommodate 13 people, but you have to book in advance.

              I didn't realize you could do that at Bacaro. The food is amazing there
