Romantic place in Burlington, VT

VTPete Mar 15, 2008 04:33 PM

Hey everyone, I am enjoying all the advise here, but most of the burlington threads were old.

I am looking for a place to take my girlfriend. I see her once every 3 months (long distance sucks) so I want to thank her for putting up with it all. Price is not an object (i know that sounds snooty, but i saved all the money I would spend through the months onto one night). I am looking for a nice place (Italian preferred and La Amante is closed when i will be there (in april)) that we can have a little privacy and maybe do some dancing near by (real dancing not bar dancing). Any advice would be great.

    If Italian food is preferred, your choice should be Trattoria Delia.

    Frankly, I believe it is a much better choice in every way than L'Amante, and I'm not disparaging L'Amante in any way when I say that.

      Agree with above. For romantic Italian, there is only one option in Burlington, Trattoria Delia. Make a reservation and ask for a quiet table for two.

        I triple that one. We had our last anniversary dinner there, it was phenomenal. :)

      Fourth that, for romance it's it in Burlington. Ask for the table for 2 to the left of the fireplace, away from the door. As for dancing there is no place I know of that isn't "bar dancing" but maybe others know better.

      What I wouldn't give for a new restaurant to send people to... sigh.
