You and your significant other need to try these.

THREE-COURSE LUNCH ($23) AND DINNER ($39) MENUS IN AUGUST & SEPTEMBER for you and your boo.

When we think of romance we think of a bowl of spaghetti with meatballs… Ring a bell? Just kidding, we actually don’t even really care who’s sitting in front of us, as long as the dish in front of us, tastes good. Whether its a first date, second date, last date, here are 10 restaurant recommendations for where to take your significant other. Something about sharing a bowl of pasta that really says, I like you, I love you or you’re bearable enough to share a meal.

We’ve got Spanish tapas, french bistros, seafood and of course, lots of spaghetti.

You know the drill: three-course meals (appetizer, entrée, and dessert) for $23 during lunch and $39 for dinner? Sign us up.
