Nice Italian dinner, limited wordrobe

Hi all, we plan to stop in NYC for a few days after a vacation in Argentina and Peru in September. We have one evening for a nice dinner, and after some research, was thinking about Scarpetta, Marea, or Babbo.

However, since we travel very light and the vacation is a lot of hiking, our wardrobe will be very limited. I will have one reasonable "go-to-diner" dress but likely something in jersey and casual, and the husband will have khakis and a nice shirt. But definitely no suit, tie, cocktail dress, high heels, etc. Will we be ok and not out of place? Coming from SF, normally I don't worry about such things, but we did have one dinner on the Upper East Side (I think one of the Boulud) restaurants, where we definitely felt under-dressed.

Thanks in advance for any help! Recommendation on a nice Italian place with great food and more casual vibe would be greatly appreciated!
