Need a Great Italian Restaurant

Roy | May 9, 2001 09:08 PM

Need one in Manhattan....I alreadhy have a reservation at Babbo--however, after looking at the menu I am starting to get scared that it might be too exotic for me...I am a traditionalist at heart who enjoys a good antipasto (particularly if it has good Italian salami); classic pasta dish with a sweet plum tomato sauce, and/or a good veal chop. What scares me about some places are the artichokes, truffles, etc.....I want something basic with a good tomato/marinara sauce or pesto or garlic......aside from Babbo, what do you think about Il Giglio or Il Mulino (though I doubt I will get in here with only 2 weeks notice) Babbo for me or are there better ones out there...I want food and decent ambience....I do not need to be sitted next to stars. Thanks!!!!
