restaurants near Washington Square Park

I am going to New York next week. We are looking for restaurants near Washington Sq. We like Italian food and we don't want something too formal or expensive. We love bistro or cafe atmosphere. Thank you for your advises.

On W 4ht Street between 6th & MacDougal is an Italina restaurant called Volare. It is a great neighborhood place, excellent food, not cheap but not expensive, and they will make you anything you want.

Check menu & prices on www.menupages.com

Another nice neighborhood place is Ennio & Michael, Laguardia between Bleecker & W. 3rd. but they are a bit more expensive.

There are also a few on Carmine St off 6th Avenue but I can't vouch for the quality.

Also, on MacDougal Street, between Bleecker & 4th, have some cappucino at Cafe Reggio, have some hummus or falafel at Mamouns or Hummus Place, pizza at Joe's on 6th Avenue near Carmine St, Italian pastries at Rocco's on Bleecker of 6th, check Murrays Cheese shop across the street from Rocco's, and Amy's Bread next door.

Also, the original John's pizza is on Bleecker further down towards 7th Avenue South. There is also a great ice cream near John's (sorry, the name escapes me).

Oops, the pants won't close!

Happy eating.

Bonjour!

Just north of Washington Square is the most affordable of Mario Bateli's vast restaurant empire - Otto. Otto has fabulous thin crust pizzas, antipasti and pastas and one of the most extensive wine cellars around. Otto does not take reservations, but it's worth the bit of wait.

1 Fifth Ave at E. 8th Street, just a couple blocks north of the Washington Square Arch.
