Italian Birthday Dinner

Hi, my best friend and I will be spending two nights in San Fran before heading off to Sonoma for a few days. We'll be celebrating her birthday on a Friday night in July in San Francisco and I'm trying to figre out where to take her! She loves Italian food. Something not too pricey, but great ambience and somewhat trendy would be terrific. We're staying near Union Square but I guess we could cab it if we couldn't walk to the restaurant. Thanks for your recommendations!

Birthday Dinner in Newport, Rhode Island

Wow, I'm somewhat new to ChowHound, can't believe how helpful you all have been! Thank you so much. We will probably just stick to Newport this time around b/c the real reason we will be there is so that my fiance can see the Tennis Hall of Fame that day for the first time. :) It sounds like Mama Luisa is a good pick, so I'm leaning towards that. I also love the idea of going to the Clarke Cooke House for a drink!

Birthday Dinner in Newport, Rhode Island

Thank you! Seems like great recs so far! Thank you for the tip goodhealthgourmet. We are staying at The Almondy, so hopefully it'll be a better visit than the Hotel Viking. :) Also, I should have mentioned that we are NOT seafood eaters! None of these places look to have THE BEST ambience, or maybe it's just that the websites don't do them justice? Good food is the top priority though, I think, so I will look into Lucia, Mama Luisa's & Peurini's!

Birthday Dinner in Newport, Rhode Island

Hi All. I am taking my fiance to Newport Rhode Island next weekend for his 30th birthday. He LOVES Italian food. Can anyone recommend a really great Italian restaurant? (We're staying in the gas-lit Historic Hill district, near the sights). I can splurge for this one... Great food, romantic, etc.! Thanks!

I think you're all right... SOL! I may try brunch the next day, that's a great idea!

Small Anniversary Dinner

Hi. I am throwing my parents a small dinner party for their 40th wedding anniversary, and have invited 8 couples, so including myself, my fiance, and my parents, there will be 20 of us. I am looking to have the dinner at a nice but affordable restaurant in Boston. By affordable I guess I mean something that will not cost me any more than $400 or $500 at the most. Is that even possible in Boston? I was hoping for Maggiano's but have a feeling that may be a little over $600. Any suggestions, or am I crazy to think I can do this?!

Birthday dinner in Boston

Hey there, I am somewhat new to the Boston area and am looking for a great restaurant to have a birthday dinner at next month with my boyfriend. I'd prefer someplace intimate and warm, and not too expensive (just in case he insists on paying!). Someplace unique and cozy with wonderful food-- Anything but seafood. Boston or Cambridge would be fine. Does anybody have any recommendations?
