Can we assume you're trying to avoid "The Olive Garden" and restaurants of that type?

But do you mean "real" Italian food as in what they cook / eat in Italy?

Or what Italian-Americans cook / eat at home in NY?

^ Yup, those are two different things.

Very different.

Very nice and very affordable, and a little of both kinds of Italian cuisine: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g60763-d424429-Reviews-Becco-New_York_City_New_York.html

Can't miss with this one.

You really like that one, don't you ablarc? http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/images/icons/icon10.gif

Makes me wanna get over there one of these days and give it a try. I've already eaten at one of Bastianach's other restaurants - Felidia - and that was sublime. Cooldude, if you're reading: I'd highly recommend Felidia, but it's definitely above the run-of-the-mill traditional Italian. Lots of exotic meats and pastas, along with some superb renditions of classic Italian dishes. But beware, it takes a hefty toll on the wallet.

Yeah, that's a good one too. That lady knows how to put it all together.

How about Patsy's (http://www.patsys.com)? The one on 56th, not the other one.

I ate at Patsyīs about 10 years ago (guest of a regular) ...but I bet they havenīt changed a thing. The place is fabulous...like itīs 1958 and Frank Sinatra is president. The food is terrible but it donīt matter. Iīd go back again.


First daughter Nancy has her moves down though...

Gotta love fringe + hair spray -- what a combo!

Not to mention Nancy's masterly exhibition of nearly the entire encyclopedia of 60's dance steps (frug, pony, hitch-hiker, hullabaloo) in one short song :cool:

And Patsy´s menu is nearly the entire encyclopedia of 60's southern Italian-American cuisine.

(they don´t make menus like this anymore) :

cooldudeny, Brooklyn is in NYC. Had to tell you just in case you didn't know.

As for Italian restaurants, have you been to Carmine's? My parents did while I was in Buffalo. I've never been there yet so I can't really say whether they're good or not.

What exactly is a modern Italian restaurant? And which sort of Italian food are you looking for: Northern, Southern, what sort of dishes?

I understood that, and it won't be hard, considering that NYC has hundreds of Italian restaurants. What sort of food are you looking for, though?

What people eat in Italy and what Italian-Americans eat are two very different things. Maybe you could tell us what sort of dishes you're interested in?

This is my favorite Italian in the city, but it doesn't serve the typical red-sauce dishes that lots of people think of as being Italian food:

You know, instead of waiting around for us to give you suggestions (which we've already given you several of), you can use the internet. When I was looking for an Italian restaurant in Midtown several weeks ago, I found http://www.menupages.com. It has thousands of restaurants in its database, complete with online menus, links to the restaurants' websites, and reviews from people who've eaten there. I'm sure you can find something that suits your needs. In the meantime, I will offer you these other suggestions, with a disclaimer: I personally have not eaten at any of these, but have read reviews and they're are all supposed to be good:

Babbo
Esca
Alto
Cesca
Osteria del Circo
Bice
Fresco by Scotto
Alfredo
A Voce
L'Impere
