Has anyone been to Sam's Place on 39th in Murray Hill? Having dinner tonight with friends who live in the area. They suggested it. All I know is it is inexpensive italian, but they swear it's great. All I know is we can get inexpensive good italian just about anywhere - we were hoping for something a bit more upscale, but I know they have a big (new) mortgage on their apartment and are probably looking to cut some corners where they can.
I'm a bit leary. I lived in the neighborhood for years, and for the life of me can't remember ever passing it - and I only lived a block away!
