  • Ignite the Ambiance: Light an Italian-inspired candle and find yourself whisked away to shimmering aqua waters, endless stretches of sky, and air gently kissed with juicy orange, mandarin and lemon.
  • Dress up your Decor!: Add a pop of colour to your dinner table by bringing a piece of Italy into your home. A bowl of lemons is a simple way to elevate your dining setup, or splurge on a decorative collection piece like a serving bowl or nice wine glasses.
  • Sounds of Italy: Music is a great way to connect with culture and where you can really feel the rhythm and pulse of a nation. Good music has a magical ability to bond itself to experiences, places and memories and captures the spirit. PORTA has created a playlist of their favourite Italian songs to enjoy this Valentine’s Day. 
  • Cuddle up to a Classic: Wind down after dinner by popping on a beloved film set in Italy. You will be transported to the bustle of Rome, the rolling Tuscan countryside, the luxe Lake Como, or beyond in no time.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, be sure to start prepping your Italian experience today! Visit EATPORTA.com to place your order and make your date night-in as romantic as an escape to Italy.
