Hobart restaurants for a Valentine's Day dinner
1. The Source | 655 Main Rd, Berriedale
MONA's above-ground restaurant brings it's own flair to French cuisine.
A la carte breakfast and lunch options are available so you can choose what you like (which is never a bad thing).
03 6277 9904 | firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Grape Bar | 55 Salamanca Place
Local wine, heated outdoor seating and a small but delectible selection of tapas sounds like a match made in heaven. (Here's where we insert a corny joke about "Except for you and your lover, of course", but we don't stoop to those levels.)
03 6224 0611 | email@example.com
3. Da Angelo Ristorante | 47 Hampden Rd, Battery Point
Italian doesn't get more authentic that hand made gnocchi prepared daily by two Italian mamas.
Owners Angelo and Marco will welcome you in, sit you down, plonk an authentic
Neapolitan pizza with fresh herbs and a crusty base in front of you and make sure you never want to leave.
