Birthday dinner in Queens, prix fix or value?

Need a NEW spot for birthday dinner for 2 in Queens, will have babysitter. Prefer weekday. Prefer Prix Fix with great food, or a place that has entrees $15 or under.
Would prefer Italian, Spanish, Greek, Indian, cuisines. French, Japanese, and Mexican are out. Nice and fairly quiet atmosphere a plus. Great Desserts a plus. Any area in Queens is fine, we have car.

Would be willing to trek to Brooklyn, but we don't want small portions, and pretentious service, and I've read a lot of conflicting stuff about the few places repeatedly recommended for prix fix, although it seems like Tempo gets the nod overall. Thought their menu sounded interesting.

Been to Danny Brown Kitchen, so that's a no.
Eat at Sripiphrai all the time, so that's a no.
Eat at De Mole all the time, so that's a no.
Eat at Spicy and Tasty in Flushing all the time, so that's a no.
Sapori dpsihia been in the past, my husband freaked over the water thing,
No to Parkside.
No to Uzbek places.

Was thinking :

-Lincontro in Astora, never been, but it seems very pricey, and loud.

-Maybe new place mentioned here, Il Poeta on Metropolitan in Forest Hills, but haven't seen the menu there.

-Uvurrara? Is that the spelling?? in Glendale, what is good there? Thought this was more of like a wine bar tapas place.

-One of the newer Indian places in Jackson Heights, which is the most upscale and best foodwise?

Thanks for some guidance.........
