      There are so many good choices. What kind of food are you looking for -- italian-american, tuscan, roman, pizza/pasta, sicilian?

      Some suggestions: Beppe (great tuscan), otto (pizza/pasta, cheese, good wine by the glass), apizz

        My husband is into wine, so a great wine list is key. This will be a special night for us, so we would like a nice restaurant, not to be rushed.

          A voce is really terrific and I didn't feel rushed at all. I got wines by the glass and they had a nice selection of Italian wines -- at fairly reasonable prices.

            Sfoglia , L'Impero (new chef is a winner in my book).

            And I wouldn't travel for it but if on UES I have been having some nice meals alfresco at Per Lei. Good fresh pastas and very friendly staff. A good all around Summer spot.

              Absolutely L'Impero. Michael White is the new chef, and the food is stellar as usual. They have a fantastic wine list with really interesting wines by the glass. I also recommend Insieme also with an out of this world wine list, Fiamma, and A Voce.

                I love Beppe, too, also Alto (the glass walls are the wine cellar and the food is delicate)
