Italian in Westchester/Stamford/Greenwich?

BakingandBooks Apr 24, 2009 12:19 PM

I'm looking for a nice restaurant in in the Westchester/Stamford/Greenwich area. I'm thinking Italian would be a good bet since a number of our party are vegetarian. Any suggestions? I don't eat out very often so your help would be very much appreciated!

      My favorite is Polpo in Greenwich, fantastic atmosphere, service and food.

        Have you been to La Zingarra in Bethe?
        It is a wonderful Italian and very authentic - no red sauce here. Lots of veges and tables outside int the warm weather.

          Thank you for your replies pobo, lucyis and wincountrygirl! I think we're going to try Emilios this time, but you can bet I have the other suggestions on a short list of places to try very, very soon. :)

          What kind of atmosphere and price point BandB? You mention nice, but there's casual, comfortable nice and then there's formal, special occasion nice.

          A couple quick suggestions in Southern Westchester
          Tarry Lodge in Port Chester - lots of veggie starters, pizzas, pastas and entrees. It's a bit hectic and you need a reservation but I like it a lot as do others here. Of course there are dissenters too. It's a Bastianich/Batali restaurant.

          A bit more "special" old school-ish is Emilio's in Harrison and Lusardi's in Larchmont.

          Hope this helps for a start.

            This does help, thank you laylag!

            I'm looking for special occasion nice. This is for my brother's graduation dinner, so even a restaurant that required men to wear jackets would be fine. :)

              I agree with laylag about Emilio's. I also enjoy La Villetta on Madison Ave in Larchmont. I find Lusardi's is good, but I like the atompshere at the other places better. They are all upscale, just friendlier.

                I second that, pobo, we stopped going to Lusardi due to feeling a definite chill in the atmosphere.
