Monday Night Italian - Bianca, Da Andrea or Crispo

Seanchai | Jan 11, 2007 05:19 AM

My wife and I are heading for a quick Sunday/Monday trip to Manhattan in late February and we've tentatively decided to make this an all-Italian eat-fest. Since our budget is modest, the high end destinations are not really an option. What I'm hoping to do is to set up four Italian meals that, if not exactly complementary, are somewhat dissimilar in experience (whether it's type of food, atmosphere, neighborhood, etc.). The two definites are Lupa for Sunday dinner and inoteca (paninis) for Monday lunch. I'm leaning toward Luzzo's for Sunday's pizza lunch (thanks to all who made suggestions in a previous thread), but I'm torn about Monday night. We're considering Bianca, Da Andrea and Crispo or any others you might suggest. Which of those would be the best complement to the others we've chosen? As always, thanks for any suggestions.
