help-new yorker living in dallas now so out of touch with new great restaurants, coming into the city for my husbands BIG birthday. i'm the host for a party of 6. looking for great italian-old school-no fried sardines and skate! want the real deal-calamari -not fried- scungille,osso bucco, great veal ,etc.tried batali's del posto. they have set menu price fix of $95. don't want to have to order a certain amount of food. suggestions??
check out the menu at Crispo. it has quickly become our favorite italian place. they don't serve all the dishes you mentioned, but they offer a wide selection of meats and fish. the Trofie al Prosciutto is one of my top five dishes in all of Manhattan.

Sounds like you are looking for Italian-American style food. In which case, the best options are outside of Manhattan. Bamonte's, which was recommended earlier, would be a great choice. It's in Williamsburg, not too far from Manhattan by either car or train.
