In terms of versatility, Italian cuisine takes the cake as there are so many different options you can cook with, amazing sauces to compliment your pasta, Italian influence with the different meats that go along with, and so much more.  Italian restaurants and Manhattan go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly, as they encompass a big part of the foodie scene here.  Question is, which ones rank the highest?

Take a look at who we think takes the tops in terms of location, delicious food, ambiance, and so much more.  Mangia!
