The sexy lighting and dramatic nautical décor absolutely make Scarpetta Miami Beach a romantic restaurant, although the decibel level definitely increases as the evening progresses. You and your special someone can share strands of spaghetti à la Lady and the Tramp while snuggling on one of the blue-printed banquettes in the main dining room. Or if you’d prefer to catch a sunset together, snag one of the smaller tables on the enclosed terrace that overlooks Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s grounds and turquoise swimming pools. The terrace tends to be quieter — and, thus, better for intimate tête-à-têtes — than the main dining room at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, especially if you dine on the early side. Tasty Italian cuisine, a chic ambiance and a sexy clientele? Now that’s amore.
