Pre-ordered gourmet food baskets – which contain an array of delicious snacks – are also available for those keen to add a little something extra to their sky-high romantic rendezvous.
All in all, there are few more magical and unusual city centre spaces to spend some quality time with that special someone.
– some bragging that when not eating, drinking, singing or watching football, these Europeans are indefinitely making love.
In short, when it comes to a romantic date night dinner, there’s no better choice than a genuine Italian eatery.
More importantly though, all of the food on the nightly changing menu is made with love.
You won’t find any bastardised pizzas or imitation pastas (think spaghetti bolognaise) on the blackboard; rather, you can expect antipasta platters piled high with imported meats and cheeses, handmade pasta fresca (fresh pasta), homemade Sicilian sausage, Campari cocktails, short espressos and desserts freshly baked according to long-standing family recipes.
Nestled between vintage Airstream trailers – it’s the world’s only rooftop trailer park – and boasting views of the twinkling CBD skyline, the alfresco theatre screens cult classics and old favourites (think flicks like Dirty Dancing, Amélie and Pretty Woman) every Monday evening under the starry night’s sky.
The ticket price includes a welcome drink, popcorn and a mixed bag of sweets, and in winter, guests are given hot chocolate and warm blankets to cuddle under.
So all you and your partner need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Imported Italian wine completes the intimate A-Z Italian experience, and as this space is modeled on the unfussy, laidback restaurants found in historic Italian city centres, you don’t need to worry about dinner being too pretentious.
