Did you know that Universal Orlando is a popular destination for honeymooners and couples only trips? And since food is an important part of any vacation, sometimes a romantic meal is in order for a couples only getaway. So, here are my top picks for a romantic meal at the Universal Orlando Resort.
- Mama Della’s Ristorante at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel: You cannot beat the Italian cuisine at Mama Della’s coupled with a live serenade or two. Food is typically from Naples, Tuscany and Piemonte.
- Emeril’s Tchoup Chop at Loews Royal Pacific Resort: Emeril’s Tchoup Chop offers diners a unique and exotic journey through the Pacific Seas, a perfect complement for the Loews Royal Pacific Resort, complete with bamboo, waterfalls, sculpted gardens and giant woks in full view. The food, like the ambiance, is inspired by Asian and Polynesian influences.
- Emeril’s Orlando: Located at CityWalk, this restaurant from Emeril Lagasse offers his signature New Orleans cuisine. Though the restaurant is kid friendly, it is a very adult friendly atmosphere. The restaurant also features a 12,000 wine bottle gallery.
- Vivo Italian Kitchen: One of the newer dining options at CityWalk, Vivo features a delightful mix of the old and new, the restaurant features a sleek, contemporary décor along with tried and true family recipes perfected over centuries, brought up to date with a reimagined food pantry full of everything you’d find in Mama’s Kitchen.
- Lombard’s Seafood Grill at Universal Studios: Cap off a great day at the theme parks with a seafood or pasta meal. The menu is extremely robust so there is sure to be something for everyone. Guests can also combine dinner at Lombard’s with a Cinematic Spectacular Dining Package that includes dinner, dessert and a private viewing of the Cinematic Spectacular show from the patio area.
