Any recommendations of a traditional-checkered table cloth type italian? Midtown and below.

I have not been in a few years but two places at which I ate many times are:

Trattoria Spaghetto - a casual, cash only, easy going Italian-American place in Greenwich Village at 232 Bleeker at 6th Avenue.
Do not expect anything in wine other than mass produced Italian wines.

Villa Mosconi - Also in the Village on McDougal Street near Houston. Also Italian American food with good portions and fair prices. Non-fancy.

Keeping with the west village theme above, I would suggest Morandi. If memory serves me right, I did BYO there a year ago for a reasonable cork fee (for NYC), but do not remember the details.

Seems like he is looking for a red sauce joint. Marta is very far from that type of place.

True.

I stopped going to red sauce joints once I went to Marta.

But pasta or Parms they don’t got.

Carmine’s. Total red sauce joint. UWS location less touristy. Not in the class of Marta but as stated above Marta is by no means what you asked for but it is excellent.

Don Angie, as suggested earlier, is my most preferred red-sauce joint in the city these days. But, reservations is a royal pain.

While not exactly red-sauce, I’ll add Fiasscheteria Pistoia in the East Village if one won’t mind going quite deep into the local neighborhoods.

Pasquale Jones might also qualify.

Rubirosa is another.

Fire at Fiaschetteria Pistoia last week. They are closed for a bit.
+1 for Rubirosa. They reserve on Resy.com. it books up... not like Don Angie (where bar seats offer full menu and are for walk ins)

I just read about the fire at Fiaschetteria Pistoia. We were just there 4 weeks ago. Not a large damage, apparently.

Good to know about bar seating at Don Angie.

Gene’s- really old school and geriatric but classic red sauce - West Village
Supper- East Village- no cc’s but very reliable food and wine list or you can BYO
Via Carota and or The Little Owl can both be great but the wait is long and no reservations and not particularly red sauce.- West Village
De Andrea is quite decent in Flatiron, and it’s red sauce-

Blast from the past, in my case at least. I used to go to the original W Village location and had gone once to the (then) new location in Flatiron some 5 or 6 years back. Yep, solid red-sauce joint.

Esca for the grilled octopus, pasta neri ( squid ink pasta w cuttlefish ),the best linguini with clam sauce in the city,and all the fish is great esp the branzino for 2 cooked in salt . Crudo and salads are very good- near the theatre district . Pretty casual. Also love Pasquale Jones for casual.
