There are a lot of good places to take your date on Valentine's Day across the SouthCoast, but there are some truly special places nearby.

Is it just me or does it feel like time has been flying by lately? Well if you're also like me, you might have forgotten that Valentine's Day is almost here.

I don't need to remind you that, if you’re currently in a relationship, it would be very, very, very bad for you if you forgot. One time when I was in college, I forgot about the day because I was studying for a big exam (I was, trust me!). Let’s just say, the person I had been dating was not too pleased by it.

If you’re planning on taking someone out on Valentine's Day, Yelp recently compiled a list of the top 100 most romantic restaurants in the country. A few restaurants near the South Coast made the list:

96. Mamma Luisa Italian Restaurant – Newport, RI (Italian)

55. Los Andes Restaurant – Providence, RI (Peruvian and Bolivian Cuisine)

29. Gracie’s – Providence, RI (New American Cuisine)

21. Pomodoro – Boston, MA (Italian)

But if you're thinking about one of these places for Valentine's Day, you'd better make your reservations now!
