2. Italian: I Sodi

isodi, Italian restaurant, Greenwich Village
The trouble with deciding on the best Italian restaurant in New York City lies in sheer quantity. However, quantity does not necessarily mean quality, and it certainly does not mean authenticity. That’s why I Sodi is our top pick. It offers completely authentic Tuscan cuisine, with items like cacio e pepe (spaghetti with black pepper and pecorino), rather than penne alla vodka and $1 pizza slices.

At I Sodi, you can expect to find classic, traditional Tuscan cuisine unlike what you can find at other Italian restaurants in New York.
