I can't really think of a better place to take your date to than an Italian restaurant.
They may not be the best at football anymore, even England did better! However they sure know how to make great food!
It's not just the food though is it? Its the complete experience. Beautiful waitresses and immaculately groomed waiters running around as if they are on fire, fabulously modern decor and a vibrant diners atmosphere.
If you want to impress the Mrs then, i'd get down to Piccolinos Italian Restaurant in Stockton Heath
