Great Italian Food, preferably Eastside or Central City?

I'm looking for really great Italian food at any prIce that isn't on the Westside. There are mediocre Italian places everywhere, but where can you go for a great Italian (not Italian-American) meal?

    Hole in the wall downtown with excellent food, reasonable prices, BYOB - no corkage fee.

      Absolutely, I love Colori. No corkage for your first bottle , but a modest fee after that-$12 or so. Have you ever had the cioppino? Is it worth thirty buck? The pumpkin ravioli, the carbonara, and the spaghetti with clam were all great.

        +1 on Colori.

        Get the Tagliatelle Alla Bolognese & the Ricotta Cheesecake.
