Quiet, relaxing, moderate place for dinner tonight

(anywhere in manhattan)
It'll just be 2 of us at dinner. doesn't need to be fancy or anything - quiet and relaxing (maybe with a decent wine list?) is really the most important criteria.

any recommendations?

  1. Marseille is lively but not noisy, and they do not rush you. After the pre-theater diners clear out, it is quite relaxed. Food is excellent and the wine list has a wide choice.

    1. Campanile is a neighborhood gem hidden away on 29th St., b/t Madison & Park Av. S. The traditional Italian fare is well-prepared and delicious. The welcoming staff provides very capable service. The decor has an old-fashioned feel, tables are nicely-spaced, and the overall ambiance is low-key.
