Recommendations for fancy Italian restaurant

dndicicco | Apr 14, 201506:18 AM

I'm more of a fancy-pants diner who appreciates the exotic and bold tastes, so gravitate to places such as Volver, Morimoto, Laurel, Zahav and Vernick.

I'm thinking about switching it up a bit for a night out with my wife, who loves the less formal, more open environments of places such as Parc and BLM.

We have done Vetri, which was great for me, but probably a little slow for my DP. There is such a plethora of choices in the city, I'm almost overwhelmed, any recommendations for something that might fit the fill?

Il Pittore, Modo Mio, Osteria, Amis, and Le Virtu seem to come up most often, but I must confess I'm unsure how to differentiate them. La Famiglia looks comically out dated.

Volvér,
Morimoto,
Zahav,
Vernick Food & Drink,
Parc,
Vetri Cucina,
Pizzeria Vetri,
amis trattoria,
Le Virtù,
La Famiglia Ristorante
