Romantic italian in the village

My husband and I will be in the city for our anniversary and can't decide on the restaurant to celebrate at. We love italian cozy places with a great atmosphere. Also we definately want to keep the bill around 100$ without the tip included. Also anyone could recommend a casual bar for a late night drink around the same area? Thanks!

        This is a weird rec because I honestly don't like the place at all, but everyone else seems to love it and it fits your budget/neighborhood rquirements:

      2. Try Da Andrea..especially the prosciutto flat buns.

        1. Gonzo in the Village has good food,warm atmosphere and reasonably priced.Good flat bread pizza,pastas,etc.Don't know of a drink spot nearby but I'm sure there are places within a few blocks.If you would conside Soho I would recommend Aurora and Mezzogiorno..Both offer good food,a varied menu,good service.Mezzo also has outdoor seating on the sidewalk if that sounds appealing.There are plenty of places to have a drink after dinner.Some cocktail spots like Tailor and Pegu Club,or The Room(nice wine and Belgian beer selection).

          1. Gotta be Po on Cornelia between Bleecker and West 4th. Amazing food at a good price point - lovely service and a very charming ambiance. Very cute place - perfect for the occasion. One of my favorite places.
