If there's one nation that knows a thing or two about love it's Italy and bringing pasta, pizza and seafood to Liverpool's Albert Docks is Gusto. Head there for a Liverpool Valentine's Day that's carb and wine filled in an intimate and atmospheric setting as candles and low lighting set the mood.

Serving up a twist on Italian street food this beautiful bar and restaurant offers a low-key dining experience of tasty tapas plates alongside gorgeous cocktails and interiors to die for. And if you're looking for a slightly more lively Valentine's date, hang around until the DJs turn up with a mix of disco, house and classic cuts.

Margaritas and Mexican food - sounds like a pretty perfect Valentine's Day to us, and that's why we'll be heading to Liverpool's Wahaca. The cool and industrial setting has plenty of little tables for two, plates to share while locking eyes over the sour cream and a cracking cocktail list.

Cosy, cute and perfect for snuggling, Leaf on Bold Street is a tea house by day and a relaxed restaurant at night. If you're looking for a romantic Valentine's Day date that's not too fancy then look no further than this lovely spot; go for an afternoon tea and piles of cake or in the evening when the lights are lowered.

While it might be a bit too cold to take those cocktails out to Carpathia's terrace, this restaurant and Champagne bar just of Strand Street offers a stunning location for a truly special Valentine's Day date. With nautical-inspired interiors and gorgeous views over the city, it's one of Liverpool's best spots for special occasions.
