Romantic restaurants


Whether it's the art, landscape or language, Italy has a reputation for romance that is justly deserved. With good weather, world class wines and exceptional Michelin quality food there can be no better place than Italy for a trip with your beloved.

L'Olivo on Capri is a two Michelin-starred restaurant attached to a luxurious hotel and spa, perfect for relaxing pre (or post) a long and leisurely dinner. If you prefer a slightly less formal dining environment try the bold and beautiful Il Riccio, a speciality seafood restaurant attached to the same hotel, or the intimate, homely La Subida in Friuli. For some rustic charm take a journey to picturesque Ristorante Oseleta in Verona, which offers beautiful gardens and an eclectic menu inspired by the chef's own life.
