Bacaro, Aroma or Pylos?

It's date night - heading to an early dinner and then to hear some live music at The Living Room. After much poking around - I've narrowed it to the above three restaurants. Looking for romantic and fairly low-key. Price isn't too much of an issue and these all seem comparable but to the point their not, I'd love to know that too.

Thanks for your votes and any anecdotes about these places that made you like or not like them.

Happy weekend.

  1. Hope this isn't too late to be helpful. I have been to Pylos and Bacaro. I would choose Bacaro (Italian) over Pylos (Greek) for a date. Pylos has a long narrow room and it can get lively and noisy, Bacaro is much larger and they have the downstairs. I have only been to Bacaro on weeknights so not sure what it's like on a weekend. The food and service at both are very good. We're trying to decide where to go tonight and may be heading to Elyssa Dido on the LES, also a good date place (and probably still BYOB).
