Rec's for a resturant to celebrate our first anniversary

Looking for reccomendations for a resturant to celebrate our 1st anniversary. We're not really picky about food, and would live a nicer resturant where we can dress up a little. My brother says there is a delicous italian place that serves the whole seperate courses, soup, salad, etc. And takes about 2 hours to get through it all, but so worth it, yet, he can't remember the name of it, siad he though it started with an S...?

Would also like to know of any good bakeries where I can order a small, but delicous cake/dessert for later in our room. Preferably a place with a website with a menu/flavor list.

Thanks so much!

Sorentino's.... I was thinking about suggesting it when I read your subject heading. http://www.sorrentinos.com/

I have also heard good things about the Café de Ville, but haven't tried it yet myself: …cafedeville.com/Home/tabid/9161/Default.aspx

I love Hardware Grill. You could also try La Boheme - I've been there for brunch, and it's very nice. It's supposed to be a very romantic setting for dinner.

more info needed

what area of town? do you just want italian? how much do you want to spend? depending if you want to keep it to under $75 or willing to go up to $150...makes a difference. do you want small and intimate or just good food over atmosphere. sorrintinos would definitly not be on a recommendation of mine.

Sorrentino's is nice, but I'd recommend Hardware Grill or La Boheme, like mcwhippet. Expect your bill at La Boheme to run well up over $125 for a five (5) course meal, maybe even more depending on the wine you might order.

Also, if you want a delicious cake, pre-order or get it as a walk-in from the bakery of the Italian Shop. There is one on 51st Ave just west of Calgary Trail, and another down in Chinatown. The one on 51st is the largest. The one on Chinatown is the original. Extremely good choice.

We wil most likely be staying downtown, but are willing wo travel 15-20 mins to the resturant. I would say the max we would want to spend is $150.00, and no, it's doesn't he to be strictly italian. Thanks for the rec's!

Hardware Grill is a good restaurant, but the service can be spotty, which could be an issue for an anniversary dinner.

Here are some other choices -

Red Ox Inn

http://www.theredoxinn.com/

Culina

http://culinafamily.ca/ (you can link to menus from here)

The Blue Pear

http://www.thebluepear.com/

Sabor Divino

http://www.sabordivino.ca/

Characters

http://www.characters.ca/

The Manor

http://www.themanorbistro.com/

Sofra (Turkish restaurant downtown, no website)

Corso32

(a new restaurant, by a well known local chef) - http://www.corso32.com/

Wildflower

http://www.wildfloweredmonton.com/

I'd probably go to Corso32, then Blue Pear, Sabor, Characters, Sofra (in that order), but all of these restaurants are top end, so it's personal preference and cost.

Sorry, reposted because I realized the forum automatically took my restaurant links to reviews on the forum.

Forgot - The Italian Centre does have a good bakery, but you can also walk to The Queen of Tart's downtown location.
