Anniversary Italian places...?

Babbo was fantastic, but looking for something a little less expensive & more laid back... nice atmosphere & great food.

Neighborhood not important... although downtown is better.

          LaVagna also has an amazing wine list. It is tiny (intimate and dark), so reservations are a must. I still remember a cold sardine and orange vinaigrette app we had there. Simple, limited menu but very nice.
