Excellent traditional Italian at moderate prices with an early bird that can't be beat ! Excellent salad, soup, main dish, pasta and glass of wine for $15.95. Lovely backyard for warm days and cozy room with fireplace for winter days. A New York gem

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
