It’s a restaurant that oozes romance the moment you walk in, with lights dimmed down low, the sounds of Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin playing in the background and an ambiance that makes getting closer to your date, essential. From a wide array of dishes to choose from, all of which have a Mafia feel to them, to quality service, Capo’s is the place to be for any first date.

Your date will not only be impressed, but feel thought of as well. The first date is always the most important, so just be yourself and enjoy the feel that Capo’s provides.
- Herbs & Rye, located in a small hole in the wall, is easy to surpass at first glance.

Make sure to try their homemade donuts, that are sure to win over your dates heart, as well as yours.
- Settebello, opened Monday through Sunday from 11 AM to 10 PM, located at The District at Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, is the kind of pizza place you hear about in the movies. Pizza already has this natural romantic feel to it, however this one-of-a-kind restaurant brings pizza back to its homelands of Italy. Maybe that is why most of the products are shipped from Italy, providing Settebello the ability to make you feel as if you’re in the country itself. This exquisite restaurant is the perfect place to venture to for a cozy and unique first date. Every item served is not only affordable, but homemade in a way that tastes entirely different than any pizza you’re likely to try. You and your date will fall in love with the food and quite possibly each other. After dinner, take a stroll through the beautiful District, where lights and music add a little more romance to your date.
- La Cave, a remarkably lavish restaurant tucked ever so quietly behind the madness of the Strip, is resident to the luxurious Wynn resort. Opened 12 PM to 11PM, Monday through Thursday and 12 PM to 12 AM on Fridays and Saturdays, this affordably beautiful restaurant has an eclectic menu, providing a variety of dishes from around the world, for you and your date to choose from. Enjoy dinner outside on La Cave’s patio, which overlooks a beautiful, colorful garden, for extra romance. This restaurant has everything you’re looking for in regards to a romantic date and the setting and ambiance alone, are striking to say the least. You and your date are bound to have an incredible time, as you both overlook the beauty that surrounds the restaurant.
