Best Italian for "Classic" Italian?

strikeoutswinging | Dec 19, 2012 08:50 AM

Hi all - I'm back again to get some expert opinion/advice on a restaurant for my girlfriend's birthday...

I put "classic" in quotes, not because I'm looking for real/authentic Italian, but because I don't know how else to describe the type of Italian she likes...

She likes straight-forward, simple pasta dishes - like bolognese , pomodoro, vodka sauces, etc. One of her favorite restaurants is Bianca on Bleecker Street (, which is great and all, but since it's her birthday I'd love to take her somewhere a little nicer.

I made a reservation at Babbo - but after looking over the menu this seems much more my taste than hers...

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
