Italian similar to Crispo and Lupa

We love those restaurants but are looking for something new that is in line with Crispo and Lupa. We are staying in Chelsea but willing to take a short cab ride. Any suggestions?

    Spina and Rafele are worth considering. Smaller menus than Crispo and Lupa, but equal in quality, with great pastas.

      +1 for Perla and Rubirosa, though both are not terribly similar to Lupa or Crispo.

      Osteria Morini may be up your alley.

          When are you in town? I would recommend Maialino but they are pretty popular and tend to book up pretty fast.
