Restaurant w/booths/romantic atmosphere?

I'm looking for something in the Cambridge, Lynn., Somerville, North of Logan airport area that would allow two former (and future?) lovers to catch up without resorting to chain food or spending a ton of money. Any ideas? Off the beaten path is great.

    I know I just recommended Z Square (in Harvard) in some other post, but it applies here too. The downstairs area seems perfect for couples.

      Maybe head downstairs into the basement dining room at Bocelli's in South Medford? Decent Italian food, romantic old-world surroundings, and a combination of booths and tables throughout the dining area. And you could always take a run over to the nearby Danish Pastry House afterwards for a cup of tea and some dessert...

        It's been quite awhile but I second Bocelli's; especially if it's still done like the former De Pasquale's with the little lamps and such.

        Casablanca has some pretty romantic enclosed eating nooks in their bar area, I'll recommend these. It might be worth arriving early or "waiting" at the bar.
