Advice about Springfield or vicinity?

parkslopemama Dec 11, 2007 06:32 PM

A friend just moved to Springfield, and I want to take her to a nice restaurant in the area (or possibly buy her a gift certificate). She is fairly conservative -- likes American food, Italian, French -- probably not anything too spicy or obscure. I could pay up to $50 per person. I have heard of a few Italian places, e.g., Basilico and La Campagna in Millburn, Ristorante da Benito in Union, and Acquaviva delle fonti in Westfield. Any comments on those places, or other suggestions?? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. TIA.
