Birthday Place for Girlfriend
Long time chowhound here.
I'm looking for a place to take my girlfriend for her birthday. She doesn't like fancy places rather she likes small cozy bistros, French or Italian. She wants to be able to enjoy our conversation and a romantic meal. We are in the east village although not necessarily confined to the immediate area. Thank you in advance for your help.

Sounds like Crispo is calling you!
However, if you wish to depart your area and venture around 84th & Madison on the east side one block from the Metropolitan Museum, I highly recommend the walkdown small Italian gem called Giovanni Venti Cinque. It's pricier than Crispo but it reminds me of a little place in Florence or Rome.
Totally chamring, quiet (maybe 12 tables) and the food is excellent.
I think there is a menu online - Crispo too.
