Café Gabbiano offers cozy fine dining in leather-backed chairs in their wine rooms – they have more than 200 varieties on site – as well as seating on their large outdoor patio.
For an appetizer, try the charcuterie plate – build your own or have the chef do it for you – with a mix of goat, brie, blue, and mozzarella cheeses and both cured and smoked meats. For a main, try one of the hand-made fresh pastas, steak, and local seafood.
Foodies might want to head to The Cottage, an Asian fusion restaurant in the heart of Siesta Key, for their Valentine’s Day dinner. This spot serves up refined seafood with an Asian flair – something different for a special night with your significant other.
But don’t be fooled – this restaurant doesn’t limit itself to Japanese and Korean flavors. Feel like South American? Try the Peruvian ceviche. Looking for something a little closer to home? Enjoy the New England Lobster Roll or the Tuscan Short Rib.
Ophelia’s on the BayFloor-to-ceiling windows line the dining room offering views of the picturesque Siesta Key scenery. The large bayside patio comes alive at night, lit up by fairy light-wrapped palm trees, and soft, modern garden lamps.
