Briciola is owned by the same people behind Aria and Cotenna, and they all feel pretty much like the same nice-but-normal Italian wine bar. Briciola is pretty small, and usually crowded with people on dates or having obligatory catch-up drinks. They have a huge list of inexpensive pastas (all $14), small plates, and a weekday lunch special where you get a glass of house wine and a plate of pasta for $18, if you work in the area at the kind of place where sobriety is somewhat optional on a Friday afternoon.

Suggested by our writers
Four years after our first review, Danji is still the restaurant we recommend most in the Midtown/Times Square area.
The Marshal is a perfect neighborhood restaurant in Hell's Kitchen with dedicated regulars and an appreciation for New York.
There are plenty of spots to grab amazing ramen in New York. While Tabata isn’t the best, it’s a great Midtown option. Tabata is nothing fancy, just a straight up soup shop without any bells and whistles.
