Gallo Nero is the new hidden gem of Hell's Kitchen. Located on 44th Street, between 9th & 10th Avenues, Gallo Nero has the great promise of becoming a new breed of tratoria with an exceptional wine selection. It's rustic feel is in tune with the wine and the friendly service only makes the place a very lovely spot, perfect for romantic dinners all the way to friendly reunions. The menu consists of a variety of items that are made to compliment every kind of taste, starting with cold cuts, Crostini, Bruschetta and cheese selections, all the way to Lamb Shank, Gnocchi and Panini. To top it all off the wines are picked from the special small vineyards in Italy, bringing a unique flavor to the area that will turn anyone into a wine lover.

"It's a shame that I can't recommend Gallo Nero, or go back there. It's tiny, and so noisy that you cannot carry on a conversation without almost yelling -- the deafening noise level is made worse by the continual playing of loud, unnecessary background music -- and it's so dark at the tables that you literally can't read the menu (we had to keep using the flashlight app on our cell phones). It's silly, because these flaws are easily fixed, but I guess they just don't care. Food was excellent and service was good, but it's not worth the unpleasant noise and darkness."

"Special occasion - the staff was warm and gracious -- food was fabulous -- interior is delightful -- only downside is that tables are close and noise level is VERY high. Veal chop with cream sauce and mushrooms was out of this world."

The Mansion's chefs artfully craft fresh local fish, regional meats, and produce into a distinctly native, seasonal menu, served in four dining rooms within the Inn. On The Lawn, the epitome of classic New England al fresco dining, think small plates and summer cocktails delivered right to your Adirondack chair. From creative cocktails to appetizers to desserts, imaginative presentation and exceptional taste characterize Castle Hill Inn's fine Dining Experiences.

America's oldest tavern. National Historic Register structure. originally built in 1652 the property was converted to a tavern in 1673. Meticulously restored colonial rooms with wide plank floor and beamed ceilings offer candlelight dining by open fireplaces. Elegant yet casual dining of contemporary American cuisine. Voted most romantic restaurant in Rhode Island. Famous tavern room (bar) with fireplace. Unique. Romantic. Fun. <br /><br />

"Food was terrific -- better than I had even remembered -- service was gracious and professional -- not overbearing -- ambience was delightful: such a pretty, romantic atmosphere. An excellent place for a very special occasion. Expensive but worth it."

Tucked away atop Nob Hill, Venticello Ristorante, is one San Francisco’s best kept secrets. With quaint tables, a wood burning oven and views of the bay, Venticello provides a warm intimate atmosphere that is reminiscent of a Tuscan Farmhouse. <br />Recognized as one of the most romantic restaurants in San Francisco, we are located just a few blocks away from the historical Mark Hopkins and Fairmont Hotels, as well as walking distance from the Huntington Hotel, The Stanford Court, and the Ritz- Carlton Hotel. <br />As you walk into Venticello, you will enter our upstairs area. Our full and complete wooden bar is supplied with an array of distilled spirits as well as some of the finest Italian and Californian wines. This allows you and your guests to enjoy a variety of beverages while hearing the Cable Car bell ring just outside our front door. <br />Venticello, meaning soft breeze, will sweep you and your guests away with an unforgettable experience.
