Villa Antonio is great, the atmosphere is a little better at the South Blvd location. Melting Pot is a pretty good place for a private dinner. Good luck!

If you can ahnd'e a place that's a little busier, how about Buca di Beppo at Carolina Place. If you get on it early enough you can get the table in the kitchen and go from there or sit out in the regular seating area and do it that way. I think the food is very good and it's relaxed enough that it won't seem like you're taking her there with a motive.

But what do I know. I asked my fiancee at a Quaker Steak after a few beers and gaver he my credit card to buy her ring. At least I know she likes it......she picked it out. lol

I vote for Villa Antonio...it is one of our favorite romantic spots. Also, has he thought about the Melting Pot? I know it's a chain but the food is sooo good, the atmosphere is lovely, and it is a great romantic setting.

I always felt Pewter Rose was beautifully romantic. I had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner there once...

Surprised no one has mentioned Carpe Diem, unless I missed it. Beautiful restaurant -- even the name is appropriate for the occasion. Seconded on Bonterrra, great food & nice atmosphere, maybe not quite as romantic as Carpe Diem but close.

Buca di Beppo is a bit too chintzy for a proposal, and not very romantic. While it's sort of neat to sit in the kitchen, it's a bit childish and annoying. The worst part is that every single dish that they carry out to a customer, they are required to come to your table and show it to you. It is interrupting and repetitive, as every 2 or 3 dishes is the same.

I thought I was the only one who felt that was annoying about the kitchen seating at Buca being annoying( not to mention the food is average at best IMO) BUT people go crazy for that ( I don't get it )
Anyway....Villa Antonio...my hand is raised for a vote!

Does she speak Italian? If not ,you could talk wiith the restaurant ahead of time and get the owner to come over at the end of the meal and speak to her in Italian saying how he (your son) thinks she so beautiful, is so in love with her couldn't imagine spending the rest of his life with anyone but her ETC ETC.....and when she looks at your son puzzled that she has no clue what was just said WHAM your son translates verbatem what was just said!

OR maybe not! lol
