Light a few candles and get to work on your spontaneous candlelight dinner. With this simple collection of ideas, you can turn your romantic evening into an unforgettable date.

Easy Romantic Meal Idea

You don’t need much ingredients for a successful, romantic dinner. For a menu that is easy to prepare yet still has that wow-effect, you need two different types of pizza for the starter and main course, as well as ice cream for dessert. These three courses will be skillfully combined with ingredients, which can already be found in most households: Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, salt & pepper. For that special touch, you will need ingredients such as parmesan cheese, little fresh herbs and some fresh berries, such as raspberries. With this short list of ingredients, you can rustle up an Italian 3-course menu in no time at all.

For the starter

You can turn any Ristorante Pizza into crispy pizza sticks. Simply slice the thawed pizza into thumb-width strips before baking. Then bake on the middle shelf of the oven at 200 °C fan heat for approx. 12 minutes. Serve with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper in several ramekins, so the two of you can dip away until the next course.

For the main course

Choose your favourite Ristorante Pizza and pimp up your pizza with any ingredients that is available in your kitchen. If you are a cheese lover, make your pizza even more cheesy by adding extra cheese toppings. Slices of veggies like tomatoes, capsicum and broccoli, with a handful of fresh herbs add a bright flavor to the pizza too. After your pizza is fresh out of the oven, now is the time to add a flavour with drizzle of some healthy oil such as olive oil or some garlic oil.  If you run out of ideas for an extra topping, look into Italian cuisine and its ingredients. There are many types of vegetables and cheeses but even some fruits go incredibly well with hearty pizza toppings.

The grand finale

What else is Italy famous for? Exactly! Magnificent little ice cream parlors and tasty gelato. When it comes to dessert, ice cream is a natural first choice. With a little effort, you can create a glittering dessert and celebrate the sweet life, “la dolce vita”. Take one or two scoops of delicious, creamy pistachio ice cream, sprinkle raspberries and cookies on top and serve with a nice drink.

Create an Affectionate Atmosphere

It’s the carefully crafted details which make the difference between a romantic dinner and a normal dinner. You don’t need to go over the top with glamour though: a tablecloth, nice crockery and quality cutlery bring a sense of harmony to the table, whilst candles or fairy lights create a romantic ambience.
