Italians are in love with Love… Italian is known as the language of love, and romance is embedded in Italian food and culture. So, in Italy Valentine’s day is extra special. The 14th February is when Italians traditionally get engaged; a custom that links back to ancient Roman times.
That’s not to say you need to get engaged to celebrate Valentine’s Day though… Share the love by enjoying a meal together with someone special, sending a Valentine’s day card, or giving someone flowers. In fact, Valentine’s Day cards are thought to have begun when St Valentine signed his last letter ‘Your Valentine’.
This Valentine’s Day we’ve created a special three course set menu, and the perfect Italian celebrations drink – a glass of Prosecco, of course! Choose from classics such as our Antipasto Classico and Linguine Con Frutti Di Mare, or try the beautiful, Purple Basil Pesto Genovese. And be sure to save room for one of our show stopping desserts - you'll fall 'dunk in love' with our signature Baked Chocolate Gnocchi - Nutella filled delights served with a chocolate dipping sauce.
