Trying not to hijack the other thread on Italian in Fairfield...
Can anyone recommend a non-generic and non-overpriced Italian restaurant? (like via emilia, babbo, cace y vino, etc, in NYC). So far I've been to Via Sforza and Pasta Nostra. YAWN! Totally unimpressed with both. Completely generic Italian cooking and way overpriced. I can make pasta with shrimp and tomato cream sauce or spaghetti alla norma in my own kitchen, and better than at these places. $24 for pasta all norma at Paci? I can get authentic lasagna bolognese at via emilia in NYC for $16, or Beef Cheek Ravioli with Crushed Squab Liver and Black Truffles at Babbo for $23. Please, rescue me from the wasteland of Fairfield County Italian cousine!!!!!!
