My favoirte Italian (Italian influenced anyways) place is Spigolo on the UES.

It is REALLY small so getting a reservation is tough unless you're willing to eat off peak (9:30 or 5:30) but it's been top notch everytime I've gone. It doesn't have a lot of fanfare or anything like that, but it's the equivilent of a Phantom hidden gem

I'm a fan of Barbuto as well.

Where is it located?

I'm going to see a show in November and would like to maybe check it out.

Also will take lunch suggestions. Most likel taking a.m. train so I'll have day to kill.
