Need a replacement for Il Corvo for lunch today

hppyheather Sep 6, 2013 06:53 AM

Local here. My mom is in town today, and I was going to step away from work and meet her at Il Corvo for lunch today. This was going to be a great choice because a) she absolutely loves pasta, b) it is walkable to columbia towers where I work, and c) I booked her on the underground walking tour and Il Corvo was convenient for her too. This ends up not being a great choice because he is on vacation this week and it is closed!!

Are there any other yummy, slightly special, not total touristy places that are semi-convenient downtown that can replace Il Corvo? I can have a car, though prefer walkable/bus. Your help is much appreciated!

          You could stick to the pasta theme and same 'hood with Il Terrazzo Carmine. Pastas are $13-17 at lunch.

            Carmine is Way more special than me, mostly, but really a lovely idea for a special person.

            Thanks!!! All great suggestions - I appreciate them, as my mind was blanking. In thinking we either visit little uncle or il terrazzo carmine.

            Thanks again!

              Terazzo Carmine is white-linen Italian all the way, Little Uncle is underground, way informal and great and tasty value Vietnamese. You will be happy differently, but happy either way.

                Given the hour, I expect the decision has already been made.

                Little Uncle is lovely, as is Salumi, Dim-Sum at Jade Garden, Green Leaf, Tamarind Tree (has special nailed), and all of the Chinatown International district.

                  We've been eating at Jade Garden for some years now and think it's super.
