Last night Jordan and I left pizza and beer and opted for a more authentic Italian fare.  In other words, the bar was dead so Jordan introduced me to another one of his fantastic New York hideaways.

I walked in, and I was in love.  This small, one room restaurant instantly enchants you with it’s soft, dim lighting, non-intrusive open kitchen, and quiet atmosphere.  Basically, if you’re looking for a good first date spot, this is it.

Amazing classic Italian fare, friendly service, and a noise level that you can have a pleasant conversation in a normal tone of voice. 

Meatballs are they’re speciality.  But I was equally satisfied by the fresh parmigiano and arugula salad.  I don’t really think you can go wrong with this menu.

I always judge Italian restaurants on a  Babbo-Frankie’s scale.  Both offering ridiculously delicious rustic Italian but differing in atmosphere.  Babbo being more formal and expensive, Frankie’s is a little more affordable and definitely casual.  Appizz falls comfortably in the middle.
