Donetto in West Midtown is a big space with a long bar and an open kitchen, and dim lighting that makes it feel kind of special. Their Italian-inspired menu is pricey, but the pastas are shareable and the steak for two is really enough for three. They also have a long wine list with some very reasonable options and their outdoor area will look great in photos.
