Anniversary dinner . . . Providence or Mozza

My husband and I are celebrating our sixth anniversary and I am trying to decide between the pasta tasting menu at Mozza or Providence. We both love seafood and we ate at Babbo last year. Which would be more romantic?

  1. None of the above.
    Go to Madeo

    1. I went to Mozza with my girlfriend last week for what was about the eighth time, and although I like the atmosphere it's starting to lose it's appeal as a romantic date spot for us. It's noisy, the tables are extremely close together and the servers can get extremely busy to a point where they can't give you much attention. I love eating there, but it's starting to feel more like my local watering hole to me. Providence is more romantic. They make the occasion feel special.

      1. If you love seafood, and you want a special occasion atmosphere, Providence is perfect.

        1. Madeo is hardly romantic. It's a fun industry place with well executed but pretty straight forward Italian food.

          And nowhere in the league of Melisse or Providence.

          If you love seafood, want a romantic place, then go to Providence. BTW - they have a few dessert tasting menus. That's always romantic!

          1. Mozza is good.. but I agree with the comment below ,it is not is the same class as Providence. Providence is one of the top resturants in LA and my clear favorite. great food.
