Deciding where to eat on a typical night is no easy task, so choosing the right restaurant for a romantic and delicious Valentine’s Day dinner can be extremely difficult. With so many great restaurants in and around Boston, making a decision can be quite a process. We want to help you narrow down your options by telling you about 7 local restaurants to take your date this Valentine’s Day:

La Galleria 33 Described as “classic Italian,” La Galleria 33 is a great option for Valentine’s Day dinner. With a small venue, La Galleria 33 has a quaint atmosphere that is completed by rustic brick walls. Atmosphere aside, the food is modeled after the home cooking of the founder’s parents who are first generation Americans. La Galleria 33 is also a partner of Nift. www.facebook.com/LaGalleria33 125 Salem Street, Boston, MA 02113

La Voile was founded on the mission of bringing French dining to the United States. By bringing everything over from France, including their tables, chairs, and even staff, La Voile offers an authentic French cuisine and dining experience. http://www.lavoilerestaurants.com 261 Newbury Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02116
