Family Birthday Dinner - the right Italian choice?

  • 3
  • Share

My parents and sister will be dining with us for dinner in early April. It is both my sister and my son's birthday. We've been everywhere from Lupa to Babbo, Scarpetta to Malatesta, Frank to Frankie's Spuntino. What I'm looking for is excellent food that has some straightforward options to satisfy the birthday boy. I don't want the menu to be too newfangled, as he would really like some calamari fritti and yummy pasta. Neighborhood not important, price not that important. Thanks, 'hounds!

      I don't think Dell'anima, L'artusi, Osteria Morini, or Da Andrea serve fried calamari though.

    2. Da Andrea ( which i felt so good when I re-found them after their move from Hudson St), Accapella ( quality old school), Bar Pitti, Da Silvano, Cantinori ( not sure when the renovation will be done), Il Mulino, Osteria Morini
