Hubby and I decided to beat the crowd both by day (tomorrow is Valentine’s) and time (we went early bird style) to celebrate V-day this year.
We went to one of our fave places – Villa Antonio.
The place was decorated inside and out for the weekend with heart balloons galore.
Hubby and I had super early reservations for the restaurant’s early bird special. We did their special Valentine’s menu but saved $12 by eating early. Score!
Hubby picked out our drink for the evening – a half bottle of Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon. We really enjoyed the wine…it seemed to have a nice fruity flavor.
Out appetizer – mini beef wellingtons – soo good!
Hubby and I are suckers for their foccacia, which is served with balsamic and olive oil. Mmm…
My Salad – spinach with blue cheese, candied nuts, grapes, pomegranate arils, pears, and a pomegranate vinaigrette.
Hubby got a wedge style salad.
Palate cleansing mango sorbet.
My entree – filet over portobello mushroom, shrimp, buffalo mozzarella, veggies, orzo pasta. The steak was super tender and I loved the sauce!
Hubby got mahi mahi with veggies and orzo pasta. I had a bite of this and it was excellent.
I got the Boom Boom Antonio coffee (a mix of coffee and liqueur – per our waiter – to make you boom boom all night and dance the night away). Very yummy!
Hubby got regular coffee.
My dessert – tiramisu with a candy heart and chocolate strawberry. So nice and light but still flavorful.
Hubby got chocolate cake and a chocolate strawberry. I had a bite or two of this and can vouch it was super good – nice and rich.
We ended up leaving with doggie bags of the steak, fish, and a bit of each dessert. Boy was there a lot of food there!
Happy Valentine’s everyone! <3
