Barelli's is a fancy restaurant that Cory loves and frequently visits with Topanga. Because it is so nice, it makes Topanga feel like an old couple with Cory, and she voices her dismay. Cory, despite being excited that it was their anniversary of visiting the restaurant, agreed to calm down with the sentimentalism about the restaurant following Topanga's complaints.

Also, Cory set up Shawn and Angela on their first official date at Barelli's in Chasing Angela.
