Recs for nice place in Amesbury/Newburyport area

Any recommendations for a nicer, upscale place in the Amesbury or Newburyport area. I am looking to give a $200 or so gift certificate to some friends that have a 3 year old. I would like it to be somewhere where the couple can get away without the kid for a nice, romantic dinner. I don't know their specific tastes or food preferences/allergies, but would assume somewhere with American cuisine or Italian would be fine.

  1. There's a wonderful italian one in Amesbury called Ristorante Molise, right in the downtown. Also, had a great experience at Phat Cats Bistro, one block north of downtown on Rte 150.
    Both would work for that amount of $$.

    1. I would second Phat Cats. I would say it's romantic and a great spot for an adult night out.

      1. Glen's in Newburyport would also be a good choice.

        1. 10 Center Street in Newburyport. Good food in an old New England tavern setting.

          1. I wouldn't even bother with anything in the area. Look in to Portsmouth, instead. Better choices and better restaurants.

            1. Thanks for the recs everyone. I decided to give a gift certificate to Ristorante Molise as it's in their town and other web sites gave it the best reviews of all the places listed.
