Best restaurants for Valentines Day

plate stencil and spice at Rivera - ANNE FISHBEINValentine's Day is almost here and you are going to need some reservations if you want to wine and dine your honey in style. So maybe stop procrastinating.

Classic sophistication is the hallmark of Valentino, not to mention the wine list that puts most others to shame. As the ultimate special occasion restaurant, you can't go wrong with a reservation here. 3115 W. Pico Blvd., Santa Monica; (310) 829-4313.

The special menu at Cecconi's on Thursday night is couples-centric with an assortment of dishes designed to be shared. What says I love you more than spicy whole chicken with panzanella from their regular menu or the special turbot "al cartoccio"? 8764 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood; (310) 432-2000.
