Best Place to Take a First Date (2009)

Cibo

It's easy to fall in love with the charms of Cibo. And who knows? Maybe some of that magic will rub off on your date, too. The building itself is a lovingly restored historic bungalow, with wood floors, a brick fireplace, pretty windows throughout, and an inviting front patio, which twinkles with white lights after sundown. Proprietors Tony and Karen Martingiglio and their son, Michael Krassner, run the restaurant with the kind of passion and personal service that makes first-timers feel as welcome as regulars, while Italian chef Guido Saccone creates scrumptious pizzas and lovely antipasti that will certainly help your cause to win someone's heart — through his or her stomach, of course. It's a classy but affordable menu. And if all that isn't enough to nurture a budding romance, well, there's always the Chianti.
