Uh oh - I just made a reservation today for dinner next month at Fiamma and now I'm worried that I made a mistake.

First I read all these reviews on yelp saying that the restaurant was empty - I hate empty restaurants and my reservation is for a Thursday night. With all the nyt press I figured for sure it would be packed. Any recent experiences?

Also I just read chowhound reviews saying the the average age was 65 (I'm in my late 20s and try to stay away from overly formal/stuffy restaurants...) and that the food was overly salty. I'm worried because today was the one month mark from my reservation and I don't know if other restaurants will still have room.

If you have other suggestions I would really appreciate them. I'm from california and generally prefer clean, simple ingredients in a lively atmosphere. This was supposed to be the dressier night of the trip and we are also planning on Casa Mono and Allen&Delancy. In the past I've loved Babbo, Blue Hill, Public, Hearth, Pheasant, momofuku ssam bar, and liked joel roubochon and EMP.

Thank you!
