Valentine's Dinner in South Bay?

My dad is hopelessly non-romantic and every year, my mom complains that he's never done anything special for Valentine's Day in their 20-odd year marriage. So this year, I decided to at least make dinner reservations for him and help him plan. Now that I've moved away, the only places I know about in the South Bay are places they take me. Problem is, when my parents eat out, they only do so at Asian restaurants or chains (Chevy's, Elephant Bar, etc.) - not very romantic. Any suggestions from fellow Chowhound's? Since they don't eat out at non-Asian places much, I'm looking for someplace where the menu isn't too foreign to them. Food is definitely important, but atmosphere and friendly service might be even more so for this occasion. I'm considering Bella Mia in downtown San Jose - any thoughts on that? Thanks in advance!
