A friend whose opinion I trust recommended this Italian place as a restaurant that locals appreciate. Is it delicious?
Three of Cups
83 1st Ave, New York, NY 10003
I discovered Three of cups a million years ago (truly a different life back then) and love it. The downstairs lounge was incredibly sexy. Upstairs, the pizza was great and a very nice setting. I have some incredible memories of the place (and probably some memories hidden away.)
again, haven't been there in 10 years or so, so not sure if it holds up. But it did then...
Three of Cups is not remotely in the same league as Scarpetta. I've eaten there two or three times, although not in the past decade, but I doubt it's changed much. It's palatable, cheapish Italian food, the kind you can get in dozens of other East Village places like Bona Fides or Cucina di Pesce. It's not as good as 'inoteca or Frankie's. But if you feel like making out with your date during dinner, Three of Cups is a good place to do that, and Scarpetta is not.
