Would like to recommend two Italian restaurants. "Bread" on 20 Spring St. NYC - Don't go here for the food, its's really bad, come to this restaurant for the wine and beautiful waitresses! The second one is called "Mercato" 352 WEST 39TH st, NYC, close to "The Asshole of Manhattan - Port Authority bus Terminal" in Hells Kitchen. The area is not that attractive, but this Italian restaurant has friendly staff and really good food.
