Downtown Italian restaurant for birthday dinner?

caddie | Aug 8, 2006 12:00 AM

Hi all,

I'm taking my boyfriend out for his birthday (we're late 20s) and am leaning towards Italian. Somewhere with amazing gnocchi and a quiet and cozy - but not pretentious - atmosphere would be great. We are not wine drinkers so I prefer somewhere that won't try to push us into ordering a bottle. I am thinking of Trattoria Giancarlo but am wondering if it's maybe a bit too stuffy? Any other suggestions would be great. :)

Thanks!
