semi-romantic new american or italian restaurant in the Valley?
I'm gonna be stuck in the valley with my gf tonight. We're looking to grab some food and catch up. Anything decent around? Not looking for anything too fancy or too casual. We live in Hollywood. My favorite restaurants are in Silverlake. Anything near Studio City or Encino would be fine.
Well, where did you end up going?
My thoughts as a local is that none of the places mentioned are even semi-romantic.
In fact a couple of them are down right NOISY, crowded, bright lights, etc.
We ended up at Spumoni. Amazing service. Not exactly a romantic restaurant but it was cozy. The food was okay. Wouldn't return but glad we checked it out! Plenty of restaurants do Italian much better. In terms of food quality. Speranza comes to mind. Wish there was one in the Valley.
