Much like all the nearby carriage houses and cobblestone streets that make riding a bike around Brooklyn Heights unnecessarily exciting, River Deli is super charming. This Sardinian-Italian spot is an ideal place to spend a cold night huddled at the bar, drinking negronis and eating some lasagna - which we prefer over the other pastas. Or stop in for a glass of wine and some olives while you try to remember if the woman sitting near the door is Emily Mortimer or Rachel Weisz.

Quality Italian is a neo-classic Italian restaurant in Midtown melded with a steakhouse. We like it for the variety on the menu and the massive space.
Finally, someone figured out that an Italian restaurant near Penn Station that serves food people want to eat would do well.
