Daddies

$$$$

Daddies is from the owner of Supper, Frank, and Lil’ Frankie’s. All of those East Village spots have been serving good, unpretentious Italian food for years, and now there’s Daddies in the West Village. With its cash-only policy and menu of pizzas and pastas in the $20 range, this place is pretty much the same as Lil’ Frankies, although it’s significantly smaller. There are only a few tables inside the space—which is filled with pictures of family, hence the name—but you’ll find a bunch of outside seating in a streetside structure. Daddies is BYOB, so pick up a bottle of wine and stop by on a weeknight for some quick, casual spaghetti limone and a whole charred eggplant.

Via Carota

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.
