Love Is In the Air

February 7, 2012 Carlino's Restaurant no comments

Carlino's Valentines DayValentine’s Day celebrates love in all its many forms, but romantic love is at the heart of the holiday. Cards and flowers show you care, but nothing is as romantic as spending time together. Whether you whisk your sweetheart away from the office for a surprise lunch or enjoy a relaxing dinner by candlelight, let Carlino’s spark romance for your Valentine’s Day.

Love for Lunch

Italians do everything con brio — with spirit — and that includes lunch. The middle of the day is right for romance when an intimate ambience and luscious food conspire to transform a midday meal into something special. Take time on even the busiest Valentine’s Day to feed your senses. Heady flavors, delicious scents and gorgeous dishes inspire you and your sweetheart to appreciate la dolce vita.

In Vino Veritas

The Romans coined this phrase to describe how a glass or two of wine with a meal lets the words of love pour more freely. The marriage of Italian foods and wines is a happy one that’s continued for centuries. Our staff will happily recommend pairings, but you can also let intuition be your guide. Share a bottle of bright Chianti or a mellow merlot to highlight spaghetti in a rich tomato sauce redolent with sweet basil. Crisp Pinot Grigio matches beautifully with chicken scarpariello or shrimp scampi. Potent and sweet, our signature “Carl-ini” martini blends peach and vanilla flavors for a drink that goes perfectly with dessert.

A Romantic Dinner

Dinner and a show, dinner and a movie, dinner and dancing — all great dates include a magnificent dinner. Carlino’s romantic atmosphere and deliciously fresh food will make your Valentine’s Day special whether you’re wrapping up a day-long date or just beginning your night on the town. Take turns feeding each other succulent bites of our clams posillipo or saucy pasta puttanesca to inspire some passion of your own.

Valentine’s day is a celebration of love, and people love Carlino’s. Please make your reservations early to ensure timely seating for your special day. Celebrate Valentine’s Day with us and add a little Italian spice to your romance.
