Romantic, Italian...really nice, anywhere???

Looking for a really good Italian, romantic restaurant to take my wife for her birthday this evening. Any suggestions, anywhere in the city? We've been to many but thought I'd mix it up a bit.

      We just celebrated our anniversary at Erminia on the UES. Very small and intimate. The food was exquisite!

    2. Apizz is on the LES. Italian, and definitely romantic with exposed brick and an open hearth. Always gets recos on here.

          Apizz is a winner everytime. Very romantic, great food, reasonable prices....a cant miss.

      1. Fiamma is very good as is Del Posto and Scalini Fedeli.

            I second Scalinatella or also Ermenia

          2. Past the usual Batali et al recs, I really like Masseria on W. 48th. Much as a I hate the Times Square area, I've had some great meals here. Try the rabbit! Also Osteria del Circo.
