  1. I expect some posters here will shoot back asking you for particulars on your pricing, logistics, dietary and other requirements. But, I'll go along blind and take a shot anyway. How about these 2 very trattoria -like ambiance:

    Malatesta; or
    da Andrea's ?

    1. re: RCC

      Thanks - I will check them out. I am looking for casual Italian, preferably in the West Village.

    2. RCC's suggestions are good ones for what you're looking for, I think.

      Morandi and Gottino are also pleasant, casual Italian restaurants -- though not entirely inexpensive, if that's an important factor.

      Gusto (just a few doors down from Gottino) has good fresh pasta, but in our experience, the service has been spotty.

      If you want a celebrity chef (Mario Batali), lively atmosphere and decent pizzas, Otto might be your cup of tea.

      You have a lot of options, clearly!

        Thanks again! I was able to get a reservation at Otto. Gottino looked good, but their no reservations policy won't cut it on this trip. Morandi also looked good, I'll table it for another time.
