When it's nice out, Bar Pitti is quite the scene. This Italian spot on 6th Avenue has a big outdoor patio where people go to be observed—but, despite this restaurant's reputation for celebrity sightings, the classic Italian dishes are the real draw. Pay attention to the chalkboard specials, and, if they're available, get the veal meatballs, lasagna, and spaghetti with lobster.

The crowds out front might suggest that this place is impossible to get into, but it's really not as bad as it looks. Bar Pitti turns over tables like clockwork, and there's never that long of a wait. Although the gruff service and cash-only payments may turn some people off, it's all part of Pitti's charm.

Morandi review image

Morandi is a big, pricey West Village Italian spot from the people behind Balthazar and Minetta Tavern with decent food and a charming farmhouse feel.

Via Carota review image

Via Carota is a walk-in only Italian spot in the West Village, and there’s a good chance you’ll have to wait a few hours for a table. It’s worth it.

Sandro's review image

Some of the best pasta around is found at this old school-feeling spot on the Upper East Side.
