Dine in and put together something fuss-free but impressive. We recommend Da Paolo Gastronomia’s “homemade” heart-shaped veal ravioli flavoured with sage and generous shavings of parmesan.

Cupid’s arrow cupcakes and rose-infused heart-shaped layered cakes (advance order required) are also available until February 15.
