Andrea, the Northern Italian restaurant located at The Resort at Pelican Hill, is very romantic with breathtaking views of the hotel’s adjacent golf course and California coastline. While the restaurant is open for lunch Thursdays through Sundays, the most romantic time of day to visit is at dusk, when you can watch the sun descend over the Pacific Ocean — you’ll want to reserve a table on the semi-open terrace for prime viewing. Don’t worry, there are heat lamps overhead should you be worried about the chill. Both inside the main dining room and outside on the terrace, tables are well-spaced from each other, ensuring your privacy, and soft piano music helps set the mood. For the most romantic meal, order the risotto, which is designed to be shared by at least two people. It’s served tableside and is finished inside a wheel of aged Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, so you and your date can watch together in anticipation as your waiters shave fresh truffles on top.
