I was recently in Via Quadronno with friends and got to speaking to 2 Italians who work at the Consulate. They recommended Meridiana as their favorite Italian food in NYC. Located on B'Way between 105th and 106th. I haven't gone yet, and want to know if anyone here has had experience. I've done a search back quite a ways, and no info. here. I'm sure this board will come up with something!
If I'm going to go all the way up there on my next trip to NY, I'd love more points of reference.
