Best Italian Restaurant (2009)

Cafe Piccolo

Cafe Piccolo is an Italian restaurant in name, and it does offer plenty of familiar Italian specialties—but not spaghetti or meatballs. The owner is Persian-born. The dining areas are lit like it's perennially Christmas. And in the food, you'll find Thai nam prik, Spanish salsa and tequila. Gay-friendly and romantic for all, there is an outdoor patio with a trickling garden fountain. Your date will be impressed you're not above a little old-fashioned wooing. The spice in their delectable lentil soup is Indian, but the spice in your evening will be what you'll be having for dessert. Wink.
