718 or L'Incontro, other ideas???

PDale | Feb 9, 2006 04:00 PM

I am torn about a dinner date for Saturday night. We live in Douglaston and have our certain faves around this general area. I was looking for a nice romantic date place with good food for my man and I. I made reservations at 718 in Astoria because I have read good reviews elsewhere, but it seems the hounds aren't all that into it. At first I had considered L'Incontro, and understand the food is wonderful, but low on the ambience - which for this particular night is important to me. I was hoping for somewhere in Astoria, although I suppose other parts of Queens or northwestern Nassau would be fine. We've already had Thai, Japanese, and Chinese this week, and not in the mood for Greek, open to anything else. Any feedback on my two first ideas or other suggestions?
