NYC - Italian Food for 6 People

Looking for an Italian restaurant on Manhattan, preferably south of 14th Street, that will happily take a reservation for 6 people (not too expensive and not on Mulberry Street). Frank in the E. Village is booked. Suggestions north of 14th Street would also be appreciated.

Thanks

I would suggest Carmine's (i think they'll take a reservation for 6 people). Two locations, one on 44th St, the ohter on the upper west side, ~78th St or so.

Not the best Italian in NYC, but a solid choice for a "fun" nite out with a group of people. All their entrees are enough to feed 3 people, so this place is ideal with a larger group such as yours, as you can order 3-4 dishes and eat family style.

Hi Ted...my suggestions are Rafaella's at 381 Bleeker Street between Charles & Perry Streets (212)229-9885...it's very popular, great food, you will need a reservation...Campagna at 24 East 21st Street between Broadway & Park Avenue (212)460-0900...the food is good, but the decor is not...and Caffe Bondi at 7 West 20th Street near 5th Avenue (212)691-8136...good food...

il bigatto..on 2nd street between ave a and b, the food is out of this world...the atmosphere is sexy and fun and it is very reasonable.

Oh, too bad about Frank -- it's one of my favorites. There is a nice restaurant on 9th St. in the East Village (bet 1st and A) called I Coppi. It's more expensive than Frank but not crazy expensive (I think it was about $250 for 5 people with wine). The food was really good. There is also a very well reviewed new place called Tappo (I think it's on 12th St. near A, not sure). I've never eaten there but I've heard good things. Enjoy!

I don't think il Mulino meets the "not too expensive" criteria.

No I don't think Il Mulino meets the not-too-expensive criterion either. I also like Tappo in the East Village, it has many big tables and a really appealing European atmosphere and isn't too expensive. It probably serves only wine & beer, not hard liquor.

Many thanks for all the wonderful suggestions. I've made a note of all of them. Because two of my friends are from out-of-town and expressed a desire to see Little Italy, we decided on the touristy but consistent Da Nico on Mulberry. Dessert at Ferrara's afterwards, of course. I know, I know, it's Mulberry Street, but the crowd must be appeased. Thanks again and happy eating in the Greatest City in the World!
