We were in NYC last Tuesday,and arrived mid-afternoon, starving. A bellman at the Edison recommended Tricolori, and since it was all but nextdoor, we made a beeline for it. Not sure if they'd be open at 3:00 on a Thursday, but thankfully they were. Menu was comprehensive, but not overwhelming. Plenty of Italian "comfort" staples, but other, more adventuruous dishes as well. Delicous appetizer of minestrone, with nice, fresh vegetables, and it wasn't all beans/pasta either.
We told our waiter we were interested in getting one pasta entree along with a veal dish, and splitting them. Without asking, he plated both of them separately for each of us, and served them in courses, pasta, then the veal. Delicous tortellini in a light/creamy sauce, not bland or pasty either. I could tell the pasta was made on site. Veal was fresh, tender, and came with nice potato/vegetables. Not sure if they could accomodate this (splitting TWO entrees) during the pre-theatre rush, but it was nice they did this without having to ask.
Service was efficient, but not rushed, I was never wanting for more water, but not having to protect my plate either.
Although modern/contemporary, the decor still felt warm. Solid lunch with good service, and a step above what you'd expect for pre-theatre. Not expensive either, we'll definitely be back.
