Need really tasty restaurant for special Anniversary

So, and I know it's no excuse, due to the craziness of everyday life, I'm guilty of waiting until the last minute to plan my tenth anniversary dinner for this Saturday.

Please help in recommending ASAP a great, tasty Italian or grill-type (think Arroyo Chop House, Parkway Grill) restaurant in the Pasadena, San Fernando Valley or Westside/Santa Monica areas. I'm open as far as location is concerned. I would pick Parkway or Arroyo, but we were just there.

Looking forward to your suggestions.

  1. In the SFV, I like Il Tiramisu in Sherman Oaks.

    Have you thought of Brazilianb BBQ? A great meat experience. I like Picana in Burbank

    You might want to consider Wilshire in Santa Monica, or Valentino's, also in Santa Monica.

    Also, on the west side of the Valley, you can find Saddle Peak Lodge. Great atmosphere, fun place, good food. Nice for an anniversary.

    1. I've heard good things about Celestino's in Pasadena which looks charming from the outside.

      Briganti in South Pasadena is also postively review on CH.
