Check Out this Romantic Local Restaurant for Valentine’s Day

The most romantic night of the year is almost here! Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate your sweetheart, your family or your friends—whomever fills your life with love. No matter who makes that list, honoring that relationship usually involves one common element: food! A night out with your significant other or a loved one is one of the best ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day—and lucky for residents of The Isle apartments, Manayunk and the surrounding areas are brimming with fine-dining restaurants that offer both high-quality cuisine and ambiance.


One of the most romantic restaurants in our area is La Collina in Bala Cynwyd, just a half-mile from your The Isle apartments across the Schuylkill River. The river plays a big part in lending ambiance to the Italian eatery. Perched on a hill with windows on all sides, the restaurant gives diners spectacular views of the river, Manayunk and the Main Line, so they can have a beautiful backdrop no matter where they’re seated.


The restaurant features four distinct areas. Its main dining room is designed around Northern Italian architecture, offering added authenticity. There is a bar area featuring live piano every Thursday night; since Valentine’s Day falls on Thursday this year, this is a great spot for diners who want to make their holiday outing even more festive. If you’re dining out with a group, check out the wine cellar, perfect for private parties, as is the Venetian Room, offering unparalleled views of the local towns.


The menu is just as exciting as the setting at La Collina. From appetizers like eggplant rollatini to a dozen different types of pastas and entrees like veal and filet, diners will leave satisfied no matter their tastes. No Valentine’s Day meal is complete without dessert, and La Collina offers plenty of options to indulge on its pastry cart, with handcrafted selections that rotate daily.


No matter who you spend Valentine’s Day with, be sure to treat yourself well!
