The season of romance is here! If you are racking your brains on where to take your date as you count down to February 14th, then you’ve come to the right place. Our advice? Keep it simple! Nothing beats spending quality time with your special someone over a good meal. Being reliable wingmen that we are, we’ve got you covered with this list of restaurants where you can celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. Are you ready to bask in an evening of love and the delicious aromas of good food?
1.The Mast' of Mozzarella & Co.
Besides freshly made cheese dishes like the Trio of Burrata (left), they’ve got other stellar items on the menu such as the Steak Florentine (right).
If you and your partner love winding down over cheese and wine, here’s the perfect spot for a cheesy date (literally)! The Mast’ means “cheese master” in Southern Italian dialect – and it truly lives up to its name being the only establishment in Southeast Asia that makes their own fresh buffalo milk cheese straight from farm to table.
While savouring incredibly fresh cheese, you can also watch the magic behind your meal through an open-concept kitchen. Watch how the pros stretch and shape mozzarella and burrata cheeses – it’ll make for great conversation too!
Fall in love with the restaurant’s rustic charm matched with a spacious interior washed in gentle shades of white.
Located at the heart of the Central Business District in the newly opened Frasers Tower, we also love how convenient this is for an after-work date. Plus, here’s a cool fact: Having originated from Rome, The Mast’s outlet here is their first in Asia!
2. Lucca’s Trattoria

Their offerings include hand-made pizzas and pastas made from special grade flour imported from Italy, and signature Tuscan dishes such as Rabbit Pappardelle (rabbit meat with wide ribbon pasta) and Bistecca Fiorentina (Florentine steak).
And it’s no wonder this restaurant has been on Wine & Dine’s list of “Top Italian Restaurants in Singapore” for 3 consecutive years (2016 to 2018) – they offer an extensive selection of 70 wines. So, be sure to choose the best to go with their impeccable Italian fare!
