The Jibba Jab:  Huge Italian restaurant located in NYC's Tribecca, which I found online on restaurant.com, where you can find discounted gift certificates.  Dined here with my mother, who is visiting from Texas, and both left here impressed.  The Gorgonzola and truffle oil pizza, complimented with a slightly sweet slice of pear, was surprisingly delicious and the house salad and ravioli di brasato were average in taste.

After finishing a bottle of Montepulciano wine with my mom, we decided to order a dessert, ricotta cheesecake.  When the waiter came with our tasty treat, he showed up with two complimentary shots of limoncello and an order of their wonderful vanilla ice cream with espresso poured on top. 

From the excellent service to the food and wine, you can't go wrong here!
