Good restaurant in Midtown

Hi there,
I'm looking for a good place to eat in Midtown(somewhere in the area close to 6th avenue, 54th/53rd street). Any recommendation is appreciated. Thanks very much. Jennifer

Authentic Napoli Style Pizza in T.O ?

Thanks, but none of them is even close.

Just found that “il fornello” ( ) used to make Naples style pizza and it was certified, but it seems they changed the style…

Actually, the Italian government is so sensitive about protecting its culinary heritage, even pizza is strictly regulated. Authentic Neapolitan-style pizza must use double-zero flour (that refers to how finely it's ground). The dough must be made only with salt, yeast, flour and water. It must use San Marzano plum tomatoes. It must be a certain variety of fresh buffalo mozzarella. The pie must be baked at a high temperature (more than 800 degrees F.) in a wood-burning oven.

Anyway, I’m still looking for one.
