Help! Need an idea for a restaurant to buy a gift certificate for an older couple getting married. They live in Levittown.

Hi all - I am going crazy thinking of what to get as a wedding gift for a couple getting married next weekend. This is a second marriage and they are in their late 50s. I came up with a gift certificate to a restaurant in the area. They are not terribly adventurous so Italian or steak would be best. Can anyone suggest a restaurant somewhat in the area that I can check? I was going to do Il Baco in Little Neck but wouldn't mind some other suggestions. Thanks all!

          Jakes is in East Meadow. Food is good, great service, very nice inside (outside and by the bar not so much).

            Did the Peter Luger certificate. Perfect. Thanks!

              My pleasure. I'm surprised that nobody answered with Luger's before me.
