The owners of downtown bistro The Peasant translated both its name and its concept into Italian with Campagnolo (it means "peasant!"), whose white brick interior got countried-up with reclaimed wood-framed mirrors, rustic pottery, and a painting by the wood-topped bar that looks like a Van Gogh, which should make a good impressionist on your date.
Strongly accentuate your vowels as you commence gorging on antipastis like white wine tomato-brothed fish stew and sweet vermouth-steamed mussels, plus half/whole plates of pastas like chicken casarecci (twisty tube noodles), fettuccine w/ dry-cured pork loin bacon, and sausage-topped orecchiette, which basically means "small ear", or what Holyfield has after fights.
Put your entree fork into GA trout w/ braised fennel, bacon, and sun-dried tomato pesto, lamb shoulder marsala w/ wild 'shrooms, a NY Fiorentina strip w/ broccoli rabe, or lemon-seasoned game hen, who dresses like a peacock ever since he read that book about how to bang chicks.
Make your date more attractive with 17 wines by the glass (all $10 or less) or 40+ bottles including a $25 Moscato (when ordering, just say "I'll have the Moscato", and leave out the "$25" part), as you down desserts like espresso bread pudding and an ice cream sandwich called "semifreddo", which loosely means "half cold", but will definitely translate to you getting laid, especially now that you know three words in Italian.
