Codino is an Italian restaurant in the West Village from the people behind Cotenna and Aria. With its tiled bar and brick walls lined with wine bottles, it’s almost identical to both of those places, just a little bit smaller. The menu is also identical to Cotenna’s, which means there’s a big selection of $16 pastas and a bunch of small plates like baked clams and grilled eggplant, most of which are under $15. So if you’re looking for a spot where you can bring a date and spend less than $100 on dinner, this is a great option. Just be aware that it gets pretty packed, because West Village people love affordable pasta more than cats love laser pointers.
