Studio City/ Sherman Oaks casual, romantic dinner

I'm looking for a casual (not too pricey), quiet, romantic spot for dinner in the Studio City/Sherman Oaks area. Tapas or somewhere where we can share small plates and have wine would be wonderful but not necessary. It needs to be open on the later side, ideally 10pm or later on a Thursday. Thanks for any suggestions!

    Mistral in Sherman Oaks.

      While Mantee would be my first recommendation (I believe they just got their Beer/Wine License), I think they're only open until 9:30 on Thursdays. Otherwise, both Raphael and Ombra would make good options.

        Il Tiramisu on Ventura and Woodman would fit the bill but I think they close at 10.

          Closing at 10 is fine. We'll probably get there are 8:30.

            Definately give it a try. Family owned Italian with very good food and nice wine list. You will like it.

          And I guess by "not too pricey" I mean around $30/person total, if that's possible.
          P.S. I'm new to Chowhound and, while I did read the posting etiquette, I apologize if I'm still doing something wrong :)

            past 10 around the area is difficult. best possiblity is probaby stanleys. they're open til 10:30. i know izakay m and boneyard is open late but i'd hardly call either romantic.
