Finding a good Italian restaurant in the theater district doesn't have to be hard, it's just a matter of getting away from the usual tourist traps. Proceed over to 9th Avenue and 47th Street and you'll find a tiny restaurant called Basilica. This little restaurant is a gem and one that you'll want to visit again and again.
The bad news? There are only about 20 or 25 tables in the entire restaurant. The good news? They take reservations, which are highly recommended on weekends. The best news? There isn't anything bad on the menu!
