How to spend Valentine’s Day 2020 in Rome

I love Valentine’s Day. My boyfriend always thinks of something special to do, and yummy restaurants are always in store! If you have someone special to share this day with, please oh please don’t be one of those people who says: “you don’t need one day a year to celebrate your love, it should be every day!” Buu you, just enjoy the evening already.

Plus, Valentine’s Day in Rome (in Italy actually) has an advantage. Unlike many countries that claim Valentine’s Day is the worst day of the year to eat out, Roman restaurants maintain a very good quality. Why? Most of them don’t serve fixed menus.  So if you’re searching for a special place to take your other half on Valentine’s, here is a list of some of my favourite romantic restaurants in Rome. Just make sure to reserve in advance!
