wine night: favorite nyc italian spots

I don't have a recipe today for your Wine Night, but I have some thing just as good, if not better.  
Here are a five of our favorite NYC Italian restaurants 
(in no particular order and it was VERY hard for us to pick just five).  
Make your next Wine Night a date night and try out one of these spots. 
1. Marea
Fancy, but not stuffy. 
Every single bite is spectacular. 
Michael White is so so good.
Must order:  Spaghetti with crab & sea urchin.

Stunning interior - cozy, warm, yet modern.
Menu is pitch perfect.
For birthday dinner, get the big table in the upstairs wine cellar.
Must order:  Fettuccini Nero

Our first "spot" in NYC. 
We signed our first lease here.
Morningside Heights' hidden gem. 
Mismatched chairs, a faux library, and floral wall paper.
Must order:  Maltagliati with Lamb Ragu

Friendliest staff ever.
You just feel happy here.
Probably because Danny Meyer knows what he's doing.
Breakfast/brunch is just as outstanding.
Must order:  Carbonara Pizza (ask for it - it's on their late night menu)

Chef Michael White again here. 
Rustic Italian food with no fuss.
Rustic interior as well with a touch of SoHo trendiness.
Must order:  Salsiccia Baked Polenta (and afogato for dessert!)
Okay, now I'm hungry. Great. 
Happy Wine Night everyone!

P.S.  What are some of your favorite NYC Italian spots?  Have you been to any of our picks?
