Torontonian seeking a reasonable special occasion restaurant - Cafe Spiaggia or other?

My husband and I had a fantastic meal at Cafe Spiaggia about four years ago - great food, exemplary service, nice setting. We are returning to celebrate his dad's 70th and thought about booking there again but I wanted to ask the CH-ers whether there are newer venues that are more recommended? His dad's hearing is not great so loud and boisterous isn't an option (though I love that!) Seeking somewhere special to treat them to without it being abhorrently expensive. Likely staying at the bottom of the Magnificent Mile. Any help appreciated!

  1. I would recommend Naha- consistently delicious food and is a bit of a calmer atmosphere. Price wise, entrees range in the $30s, so not sure if that is out of your price range?
    Also would throw out North Pond as another option.
