Valentine’s Day is only about a week away.

Most people that celebrate it will be making plans to be with that special someone. Besides getting a card, flowers and a gift, those plans may include a special dinner. Here are a few suggestions that Linda (my wife) and I came up with for dinner.






5) Aperetivo Bistro

This is nice place for Italian specialties at 426  State Street in Schenectady.

A great place to go for that romantic seafood dinner. 195 Wolf Road in Colonie

3) Delmonico’s italian steak house

This combines Italian dishes with great steak dinners at 1553 Central Avenue in Colonie.

A fantastic menu and a place where I’ll bet most of the women that have gone there will really love. Lanie's is at 471 Albany Shaker Road in Loudonville.

1) Home

This isn’t a restaurant. It’s your very own place. Create your own ambience and make that very special dinner for two in the comfort of your own home. After dinner, get a movie and make it special night for just the two of you.


For most of the places, keep in mind that you’ll need to make a reservation. If you have a room mate or children, you may want to make arrangements to have the place to yourselves. Where are some places that you like to go for that special dinner and evening for two?
