Locanda Verde is a high end, chic Italian restaurant located in Tribeca. It is not cheap, but there is good value in a nice ambiance, excellent food and good service. This is well suited to a date or a nice meal with friends.
There is outdoor seating but I would recommend sitting inside, which has a great atmosphere even if it is a bit busy.
The dishes are creative, eye pleasing and tasty. Particular ones that stood out were the ricotta starter, hamachi crudo and the gnocchi entree. While Locanda Verde is not a small restaurant, it is fairly trendy so make a reservation
