This is the more casual, affordable offshoot of next door Matteo's, which has been around since 1963. Here you can still order the rich meaty lasagna from the original Matteo's menu. Sidewalk tables available. The chopped salad is a must.
Sor Tino is a lesser known but equally delicious sister restaurant to celebrity filled Ago on Melrose. The best is their outdoor seating, which is covered and heated during the colder months.

The Landmark is a fantastic first-run movie theater for mainstream and independent films. Movies in the screening lounge are great if you want to relax on a comfortable leather couch with a date. After the movie, you can have a cocktail in the bar. And there's free parking!

Tropical coconut cake, a definite must-have if you love anything coconut. The frosting isn't too sweet and the bread is moist and melts in your mouth.
