Since Italian is one of the major romance languages, it's only fitting that the petite pasta shop Rinata has a legit date-night special. Every Sunday night you and your sweetheart can score four-course meals for $20 each. If Sundays don't fit your wine-and-dine schedule, try Rinata's daily 4:30-6 p.m. happy hour (and 9-11 p.m. Fri.-Sat.) for $4-$6 food and drink deals.
