Ideas on fun italian birthday spot, like Inoteca or Otto

shorts Jun 11, 2009 08:31 AM

Regardless of reviews, both Inoteca and Otto are fun places to go (in my opinion) and they dont break the bank. Im looking for another restaurant in this vein.

Any ideas? Location not a problem.

      I did my last birthday dinner at Aroma, - you can get a small room if you have a large party. Very, very good food and impressive wine list.

          not a fan of bar stuzz at all. mushy overcooked pasta. personal experience but maybe it was an off night.

          couple east village favs... Max, Frank, Luzzo's... Can't go wrong w/any of those, especially Max. Prices are unbeatable

            L'Artusi is fun and relatively inexpensive. You could also look in to Malatesta Trattoria (tho not as fun as the ones you mentioned).
