An Italian Love Affair: Valentine’s Day with AQUA Forte

Italy is unequivocally the most romantic country in the world. Throughout history, the picturesque nation has been celebrated for its beauty; from the sweeping Tuscan vineyards to the craggy coast scattered with colourful buildings, or even the cobblestone cities with burbling fountains… The whole of Italy is veiled in an air of romance, which is why it comes as no surprise that some of the greatest love stories are set here, from Shakespeare’s tragic love story Romeo & Juliet to Elizabeth Gilbert’s journey of self-love Eat, Pray, Love— Italy will always be synonymous with love.

If you’re wondering what to do on Valentine’s Day with your girlfriend or boyfriend, or even your husband or wife, we have something in store for you! Experience a quintessential Italian love affair this Valentine’s Day in Sri Lanka when you dine at AQUA Forte. Here’s why you should spend the holiday of love with us.

Location

/

AQUA Forte is certainly one the most romantic places in Galle, but the Galle Fort itself exudes romance and is one of the best places to visit on Valentine’s Day. Read our blog on the most romantic things to do in Galle Fort, discover some of the special things to do on Valentine’s Day.

The fort is unlike any place in Sri Lanka. During the day the streets are abuzz with explorers, but as the sun sets, there is a hushed romantic atmosphere that is paired perfectly with the colonial charm. Our restaurant is set in the heart of this heritage site, and as you make your way through the winding cobblestone alleys, it will almost seem as though you’re in an Italian village!

AQUA Forte is a romantic fine dining restaurant that serves authentic Italian food and wines. On this holiday, we have some Valentine’s dinner specials. Your night of romance will begin as soon as you enter through our arched doorway where you will be served a special cocktail/mocktail. While every table in AQUA Forte exudes a romantic atmosphere, call in advance to book either the table by the fountain or the table for two on our balcony.

    The Food

    In Italy, we express our love through food. Whether we’re cooking a romantic dinner for our partner, or our grandmothers are preparing some fresh pasta, each dish prepared is a labour of love. This same love is present in every dish we make for you. Enjoy in some delectable dishes prepared by our Head Chef Roberto, paired with some fine wine. AQUA Forte is the perfect place to have a candlelight dinner in Sri Lanka, and while the food, company, and atmosphere will be extremely romantic, the highlight of the evening will be our tiramisu!

    It Can Be Whenever and Wherever

    In Italy, love isn’t celebrated only on one day of the year, instead, it is celebrated every day in everything we do. Celebrate romance and your partner at any time of the year. If you’re looking for Valentine’s day gift ideas, browse through our online shopping platform in Sri Lanka for the most romantic gift. If you’re unable to head to Galle on the 14th of February, give your partner a gift card so that the two of you can experience the magic of AQUA Forte whenever you want.
