Which do you recommend/prefer for a 5 year anniversary dinner? Atmosphere and food are both equally important! We live on the westside and last year went to La Botte and I was very disappointed. I don't remember the food but i hated the ambience - it was too light and stark. We like traditional italian food - pastas, red sauce, veal, that type of thing. I really want a great meal and don't mind the cost as long as we don't leave feeling "let down".
