  1. Price range/budget?

    Preferred neighborhoods?

    Is this for tonight? How many people?

    Have you considered Eataly? They are on Urbanspoon. I see some times left for the non-Manzo restaurants: La Pizza & Pasta, Il Pesce, and Le Verdure.

    Valentine's Day Pre Fixe Dinner Menu @ Il Pesce ($75/person)& Le Verdure ($50/Person). Visit

        I didn't see a lot on OpenTable but there's some more under-the-radar places on Urbanspoon available.

        Cacio e Vino
        Frankies 570

        Book ASAP!

              Oops, thought you meant today, today and not yeaterday, today.
              Where did you go??

            1. Marcony
              DaCiro and
              I Trulli,
              all have open table reservations available.
              All three are beyond decent Italian restaurants with excellent home made pasta.

              1. Crispos -- hands down!!
