      Scarpetta (the italian restaurant at the Fontainebleu) is fantastic, but extremely expensive.

        well you only have one 50th anniversary! ;)

    2. Scarpetta would be too pricey. Was there already was just ok for me.

        Decided on Italian and it could be in Broward county also. Would like great food, ambiance, and not too pricey. Suggestions please!!!!

          Casa d'Angelo's in Fort Lauderdale is a good spot... great Italian food and a nice atmosphere, ask for the wine room its quieter.

          1. re: Sobe4u

            Scarpetta is superior to casa d'angelo.

            Try sardinia.

            1. re: tpigeon

              I second Sardinia. Macaluso's is also a nice affordable option.

              1. re: Blind Mind

                Sardinia is good but a bit of a factory-esque ambience , ie. loud etc. . Buit if you really like loud, disco, lively, celebratory, kitschy and such, a great Italian place in Broward is Anthony's Runway 84......

                1. re: Blind Mind

                  Macalusos is more expensive than sardinia --they also charge for bread

                  1. re: Blind Mind

                    almost impossible to fit 15 in macalusos too. Right now, I would skip italian altoghether and do talula if you want to do it in south beach.

                    He asked for some Broward suggestions... so that would rule out Scarpetta.

                    1. re: Sobe4u

                      Thank You All. Going to Casa Di Angelo. It's one of my favorites.
