Unless you have an irrational hatred of Italian food (and honestly, who does?) or terrible lactose intolerance, it’s hard to go wrong with Eataly. If it has cheese and tomato sauce, you can probably find it there. Hell, there’s plenty to choose from that doesn’t have either (you know, all that other great Italian food that the lactose intolerant can enjoy). Make reservations at classy Eataly restaurants Manzo, Il Pesce, and La Verdure and enjoy quality Italian dishes prepared especially for Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for something more relaxed, Eeataly offers an endless number of fast casual options spread over multiple floors.

What does a Peruvian Valentine’s Day look like? Finding an answer to this tantalizing question alone is enough of a reason to lead your lover to Raymi. Well, maybe not quite. But the quality cuisine–like steak? try steak prepared the Peruvian way–and interesting cocktails (have you tried a pisco sour? You’ll be head over heels) certainly is. You’ll fall in love with the ceviche. Pay $65 for a four-course meal (a la carte won’t be available for this most special of days). Add $25 for sparkling wine.
Stay tuned for more Valentine’s Day recommendations in the coming days.
