I only discovered this website and these boards last week, but you guys have already improved my life! On the recommendation of posters to these boards, we went to I Coppi on 9th street on Sat. We had a wonderful meal - I particularly recommend the penne with homemade sausage, it's bursting with fenell-y goodness and puts all other sausage to shame, and be sure to try their amazing parmesan cheese. (Where do they buy it???). Several posters complained about the expensive wine list - but there were several bottles in the $20s, and we had a perfectly decent white from San Gimagnano for $24, which is after all about all you can hope for in NY restaurants. (We also had Bellinis, which at $9 a piece weren't cheap, but were DELICIOUS - very fresh peaches!).
Thanks again guys/gals and keep up the good work!
