Dimly lit with flowers on every table, this Italian-American restaurant has been the perfect date restaurant for about 25 years. Diners might have their steak or seafood entrees complemented by the serenade of strolling musicians in the main room or piano music in the bar area. Angelo Pagni, who owns the restaurant with his brother, Enzo, said Sabatino's is popular in the neighborhood for a lot of reasons, food and atmosphere chief among them. "You can ask 10 different people what they like about it and get nine different answers," he said. The dining room is set off from the good-sized bar, where the piano is a big draw on Friday and Saturday nights.  Editor's Note: As of 8/28/18 this location has been reported as closed.
