We just found out we'll be in the city Wednesday and Thursday (January 12 and 13) evenings and my wife definitely wants a good Italian meal. Her heart is set on Babbo but that may not be possible with this short notice, so what are the best alternatives that we will likely get a table if I try to call on Monday or Tuesday.
I have time to hit redial a lot, but are there some decent places for walk in traffic where we won't be treated as "walk-ins?" (I HATE that!)
