Ft Lauderdale Las Olas area Valentine's Day

Hello fellow chow hounds, just looking for some good ideas for a nice dinner. Any good Italian restaurants or steak house would do. Kind of a casual place we prefer

  1. Mancini's is a decent Italian place with a nice patio. Morton's, newly opened, has a good vibe and great steaks.

    1. I love Cafe Vico on US 1, north of Sunrise. Romantic, great food and really good service. Mancini's has good food but the service is beyond awful. Spazio is on the beach in Ft Lauderdale, it's casual and the food is good.

      1. Valentino's on Federal Highway is excellent!

          Valentino's is excellent. We were there this Sat. night and had another wonderful meal. But if you want to stay on Las Olas, try Bova Prime, which is an Italian steakhouse. I've not been but I heard a good report from a friend.

        2. if you want to keep it intimate on las olas, consider las olas cafe

          1. I second the Las Olas Cafe good food at good pricing also the guys from Marks Las Olas just opened their own restaurant and i hear good things about it. I cant remember the name but its near the end of the strip
