any ideas for a romantic birthday dinner for my girlfriend, kinda picky

Hello all. I'm hoping that someone out there can help me figure out a few options. In general my girlfriend isn't a fan of eating out. She loves diner food and doesn't like anything too stuffy or expensive.

However, for her 28th birthday she has expressed interest in having me take her out to a romantic dinner. I have a few parameters I have to follow. It has to be french or italian, dimly lit w. a romantic ambience, around 50pp, and they should have several options for those that don't eat red meat (chicken and fish are ok).

i know there are a lot of great modern italian places but i'm really looking for something more traditional that would suit a diner that isn't that adventurous. Lastly, I'm willing to travel but would prefer to go somewhere downtown that takes reservations for 2.

Thanks a million for any advice.
