Help finding UES restaurant

I need help finding a restaurant on the UES. I used to walk past it from time to time. It was on a cross street. It had a very 'neighborhoody' look. It looked like it had been there for forever. Because it was on a cross street, it seemed like only ppl who knew the area well would eat there. I think it's in the late 70s or early 80s, somewhere between 1st ave and Lexington. South side of street. Close to what would be west side of avenue and not too far in from the avenue. Green outside. Maybe Italian??? Any ell would be appreciated.

        Batgirl, I walked by the other night and Nica has a green & white striped awning. Did you ever figure out what restaurant you were looking for?

    2. Antonucci maybe? That's 81 between 3rd and Lex, south side, just off western edge of 3rd. I've never been but it seems to fit your description.
