Final Theater Italian Restaurant Question

So I posted a question a few days ago and did some research after hearing some of your feedback. Going to the minskoff theater with my girlfiend at W45th and 7th and looking for a good italian place within 1-2 blocks. Have narrowed it down to about 4 choices and just want to hear the opinion of those who have frequented these places or know about them.
1) Bond 45: very close to the theater however haven't seen great reviews and prices seem a bit high.
2) Trattoria Dopo Teatro: personally liked the menu but again in reading some previous threads seems that people weren't too impressed.
3) Trattoria Trecoloir: haven't heard much about it, seems good.
4) Scarlatto: was recommended by someone on another food message board.

Thanks a bunch for all of your feedback, looking forward to finally making a decision.

  1. I recommended Orso on your other thread. Is there some reason you don't think this would be suitable?

      No reason, just completely forgot about this one, haha.

    2. Of the ones you've listed, I've only been to Bond 45 and Trattoria Trecolori. I liked my meal at Bond 45 (esp. the mozzarella plate for the table). But I really like the meals I've had at Trecolori. Bond 45 tended to be quite loud and little corporate/business feeling, if you know what I mean. Trecolori was more warm and, if you sit upstairs, quieter, but still a bustling fun place. I've had the ravioli special several times and it is always delicious. If I recall correctly, Trecoloi's prices are somewhat more gentle than Bond 45, if that makes a difference for you. You should also check menupages and you can see if there's anything special that strikes your fancy on either of the menus.

        In that area, I like La Masseria better than those listed. Also, if you go on restaurant row to Orso, I like Becco better.

      2. Yes, Becco over Orso.
