I'm looking for a cozy, Italian restaurant with great pasta for a bachelorette party dinner. It would be on a Thursday night for 6-8 people. Ideally, we would want to eat around 8 pm so given the group size, it takes out a lot of the high profile restaurants that don't take reservations for prime times for large parties.
Any recommendations? Preferably in the West Village / Greenwich Village area but also open to SoHo, Tribeca, and other nearby locations.
