Crispo... Apizz...dinner with my boyfriends parents in my city

My boyfriend's parents are coming from out of town and I'm looking for great Italian--with at least a few simple entrees. Good atmosphere for talking. Cool New York but not too cool. Good bar to have a drink before dinner. Price is really not an issue.
Right now I'm deciding between Apizz and Crispo. Does anyone have any thoughts on either?
Or, have any other recommendations?? I've eliminated Scarpetta, Hearth and can't get a reservation at Mailaino. Thanks!

    Both are great. But, I would go to Crispo.

      I think Apizz is a good option, I've never tried crispo.

      Also consider Lavagna, the food is good and the scene seems to be exactly what you are looking for.
