Caffe Riace

Since 1997, Caffe Riace's chefs have infused their Italian menu with a Sicilian flair, dishing up pastas, veal dishes, and seafood within the restaurant's vibrant spaces. They use some organic ingredients, cure their beef in-house, and import real buffalo mozzarella for their mozzarella di bufala salad. The staff serves pasta dishes—including the prawn- and lobster-loaded capellini aragosta with tarragon and mushroom—atop glass tables set in front of scenic murals and rustic artwork.

Towering statues survey the outdoor patio, which spreads beneath umbrellas across a tiled plaza. Lion statues and flower beds give the outdoor space the aura of a florist who tames lions or a lion tamer whose boyfriend really screwed up. The patio also benefits from a sense of whimsy—rather than spilling water from an urn, the centerpiece fountain's patina-covered figure hoists a washing machine atop her head. Inside, the roster of elegant private dining rooms includes the chandelier-crowned Riace room, where bright artwork and flowers pop against red and cream walls, as well as a wine room with wine racks and wooden wine barrels reclining in the room's nooks.

Great date experiences and other fun two-person activities
