Waltham suggestions for Brandeis graduation dinnner?

We'd appreciate your suggestions for a very nice dinner for 4 the Saturday night before graduation. We'd just like a really wonderful meal to celebrate my stepdaughter's graduation. Not looking for pretentious....just wonderful food and good service. Thank you for any suggestions you might have.

    1. Three worthy Italian places: Il Capriccio (the most formal and creative, with the best wine list and one of Greater Boston's best sommeliers), the Tuscan Grill (a bit more casual, focusing on Tuscan cuisine, though it is not entirely authentic in that regard), and La Campania (probably the most casual, and a quite authentic reading of that region's cuisine). I've gotten very good service at all three of them.

      1. I second the Tuscan Grill. I've eaten there several times and have always been happy. They have a wonderful selection of homemade grappa you should try as well.
