Zio or Crispo

Which would you recommend for a Saturday evening dinner for 2 couples?
Would like a space where we are not crowded in, that is not too loud, and has functioning air conditioning.
Your thoughts on either/both of these places are appreciated!!

  1. I don't know Zio, but Crispo is very noisy.

    1. I don't know Zio either, but the food is not very good at Crispo. The best thing about the place is their garden.

      1. Zio is solid; not great but good. Not sure about a/c since I have not been there this summer. As for noise, I've never encountered a lot of it when I've been there, but then the place as never been very crowded on my visits. Never been to Crispo.
        May I ask why these two paces? There are many better Italian retaurants in NYC.

        1. Thanks for the input. I decided to go with Zio. Hope it works out.
