The last time we were at Dino, they were only playing emotional ballads from the 90’s, and at least one employee was singing along. That’s the vibe of this place. It’s a little neighborhood Italian spot with a cozy, minimalist space, and it’s perfect for a low-key date night. Prices are also pretty reasonable, especially when you factor in the very decent portion sizes. A bowl of pasta here will put you to sleep, and if you’re into simplicity, we suggest the spaghetti limone.

Vic’s in Noho is a restaurant to keep in your back pocket for when you need something easy and good.
Lupa is an ideal spot for that early-in-the-week dinner in Greenwich Village that you sort of want to cancel but can’t.
Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that’s kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.
