    I loved my experience at Torrisi Italian Specialties. It's a tiny warm restaurant in Little Italy, but nothing like the other restaurants there. It is new (within the last few years) and highly rated for the food as well as the chefs ability to think outside the box. It's such a unique experience combined with mind-blowing food. I highly recommend it, especially the New York "themed" tasting menu. So inventive and playful!

    Another good one is Marea, which is on Central Park South, so close to where you are staying. There octopus pasta is mind blowing.

    One last one that I thought was excellent was Del Posto. The 100 layer lasagna is very unique.

    That said, Lupa and Babbo (especially the pasta tasting menu) are delicious. If you can't get a reservation at Babbo, try your luck with grabbing a seat at the bar at 5 pm.

    I just got back from NYC and the first night we went to Mario Batali's Babbo --see above mention from Mike L.

    The second night we went to L'Artusi and--dare I say--it rivaled/beat Babbo in my book!

    The cheese list had a good variety to delish Italian cheeses and the Squid Ink Seafood Pasta (a special, not on the menu) was AMAZING!

    Ordinarily I would say stay away from Little Italy except for La Mela Ristorante. Incredible, cheap Italian food, although no where near Amsterdam Ave.

    My favorite place is Mario Batalli's Babbo. You'll love it, just be sure to call 30 days (to the day) ahead for your reservation.

    I would recommend Coppola's West . It is very good! And I am not even a fan of italian cuisine. The restaurant is on 79th Street right by Amsterdam.

    I really like OTTO Enoteca Pizzeria. It's casual, the pizzas are perfect for sharing, and you cannot leave without trying the olive oil gelato.
