I have a lady friend who strongly prefers to go dutch, even if it goes on my card and she tosses me a $20 or something she still feels much better. Therefore I try to find places that aren't too expensive for her (as she's a student). So far I've lucked out at standard places like Golden Thai or even RichTree, places you can spend $75 - $80 and not feel ripped off, decent ambience and eye-candy, food's decent. etc.
How about Italian? Any good places where a shared appetizer, two dishes, two drinks usually = less than $100? We don't need fancy or fusion stuff, just the foundational stuff done REALLY well.
