Best Authentic Italian in Manhattan?

Valerie | Apr 22, 2002 04:02 PM

Please help. My Abruzzese mother is coming into town for mother's day and I have to deal with our normal eating out paradox -- she vastly prefers Italian food but nobody can cook it as well as she (which, by the way, is close to true, but doesn't make my life any easier.) What I'm looking for is AUTHENTIC delicious Italian food at a reasonable price. Fancy makes her nervous. As does dirty. Need a restaurant that screams clean kitchen. And when I say authentic, I mean none of this spaghetti and meatballs crap and if it's really authentic, it will probably involve some good seafood dishes, too. Thanks in advance for making my weekend less stressful...
