NY Italian similar to SF's Delfina or A16

Well, I realize that I should have been much more specific in what I was looking for, I'm sorry about that.
I'm not necessarily looking for pizza. What I love about A16, Delfina or Quince is that although they are definitively Italian-inspired, they have a definitive San Francisco flavor to them. So basically, I'm not looking for a "rustic" or "authentic trattoria" experience, but a modern NYC take on Italian food... if that makes any sense!

NY Italian similar to SF's Delfina or A16

Hello New York Chowhounders,

My wife and I are visiting your great town from Montreal later this month and we want to make sure that our dinner plans are spot-on. So far, we’ve made reservations to Jean Georges and we plan on going to Spotted Pig and Momofuku Ssam bar. For our fourth night, we would like an Italian restaurant and this is where I need your help: Esca, Maialino and Marea are names I’m toying with. Ideally, I would like to find NY’s equivalent of Delfina, A16 or Quince, my three favorite Italian restaurants in San Francisco. All are set in a modern, relaxed atmosphere, with impeccable and innovative cuisine. Is there anything similar in New York?
