Pizza w/good italian food between Penn station & Rockerfeller Center?

We liked the food at Johns Pizza on Bleeker Street, was wondering if there is anything within walking distance of Penn Station or Rockerfeller Center?

Thanks!

Strada 57 or Maria Pia or Roberto Passon

I keep coming back to Passon (how do you pronounce that?).

Just like years ago when I cam to these boards for help, I kept being directed to Tricolori and when we went, we were not disappointed.

Other suggestions? Have a few more days before I make reservations. (Just avoid any restaurants that are modern and bright, I want old world Italian, not new world Italian).

What is your opinions of the above restaurants?

Looking for cozy old NY atmosphere, authentic italian, like Trattoria Trecolori (which is closed for renovations).

Has to be within walking distance of Penn Station and Rockerfeller Center because we plan on doing one big walking loop.

Is it safe to walk with kids after dark from Rockerfeller Center?

If a restaurant says it serves lunch 12 - 3, does that mean you have to be done eating and out by 3 or last reservation taken is at 3?

Our group will be adults and children ages 12 to 22.

Thank you!

Trattoria Trecolori closed for renovations - need new recommendations

Years ago chowhound members recommended Trattoria Trecolori to us for our annual holiday trip to NYC. They are closed for renovations until 01/07. I need your help again.

We are looking for something on the same lines. Italian. Late lunch. Casual dress. NY-old world Italian atomosphere. Family italian style is fine too.

This year we are taking the train to Penn Station and want to walk to the restaurant, then to the tree, then back to the train. Any great chocolate places (or hot chocolate/coffee dessert places) on the way back would be a bonus.

Thanks!
