Need some quick V-Day advice in Pinellas!!

JBethell | Feb 12, 2009 06:08 AM

Well, my dinner reservations were cancelled today by the restaurant, which will remain nameless.

So I need some new options. Things are a bit tight, so I'm not looking to spend a fortune, no Berns, or 50$ prix fix menu's. Trying to stay away from steakhouses as well, since the SO and I both agree that a steak at home is usually better than a restaurant.

My 2 frontrunners at this point are Vincenzo's in Clearwater, and Da Sesto in Pinellas Park. I've been to DS and LOVED it, never been to Vin's but I've heard nothing but great things about it.

Red Mesa was my first choice, until I learned they don't take reservations for parties smaller than 5, and I'm not going to try to get a table at RM on V-Day without a reservation.

So of Da Sesto and Vincenzo's what would you all recommend? any other recommendations?

I'm not stuck on Italian, she doesn't care for seafood, and isn't a very adventurous eater, basically nothing straying too far from beef, chicken, pork, pasta.

Sorry for my rambling and Thanks so much in advance!!!
