Romantic restaurants in Orange County – Anaheim White House
Anaheim White House is located in the heart of Anaheim in a 1909 historic building that was once surrounded by orange groves. This award winning restaurant is owned by Bruno Serato (also proprietor of La Vie en Rose in Brea), and is the ideal place for a romantic evening for two. There are many different dining rooms (named after Presidents) featured throughout the restaurant retaining much of their original 1909 appearance highlighted with white and gold linens. The library serves as the main dining room. Also known for many celebrity sightings, Anaheim White House features numerous entrees that are named after celebrities. The popular Ravioli Gwen Stefani is named after singer Gwen Stefani who grew up in Anaheim. This awesome signature dish is made up of lobster-filled ravioli with basil on a sauce of ginger and citrus. Served as an appetizer, it costs $12.95. Another favorite dish is the Manzo Brasato Beckham, a three hour braised beef in a Cabernet reduction with a touch of a horseradish ($31.95).

Romantic restaurants in Orange County – Angelo’s and Vinci’s Ristorante
Not your typical romantic restaurant, but it’s a definite for any date night. This popular restaurant located in downtown Fullerton has been serving guests their traditional Italian dishes for over 38 years. More than just a restaurant, this is a visual explosion that delights all who enter. Guests will find the decor made up of twinkling lights, puppets, carnival masks, scenes depicting old Italian storefronts painted on the walls, and an intriguing and surprising Monster Wine Cellar. You and your date will enjoy all the “surprises” you find as you take a walking tour through the restaurant. Besides the wonderful decor and atmosphere, what makes this place amazing is the authentic Italian fare. Menu highlights include: over 50 pasta and stuffed pasta dishes; seafood; chicken; mesquite wood fired grilled entrees; and to-die-for desserts. My personal favorite is the antipasto salad with the Spaghetti Cinque Formaggi. And let’s not forget the pizza. Probably the best pizza you’ll ever have. Finish off your meal with Tiramisu which is actually flown in from Italy. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is unique – the perfect formula for a memorable dining experience with the one you love.
