Well, we are here to help you ! We have picked our favourite five Seminyak starry eyed Italian restaurants for you to wine and dine your one and only.  I mean really, lets face it, no one does romance better than an Italian.

Settimo Cielo

First things first, Settimo Cielo means Seventh Heaven in the language of Love – so there is no going wrong here. This elegant and intimate restaurant whispers romance with moody lighting, tables for two, cocktails to die for and the most authentic rustic Italian food on the island. Take charge here and order your loved one some Vitello Tonnato, followed by the tastiest Crab Pappardelle ever, then finish it off with the Seventh Heaven tasting dish – a desert dish made with love. One night here and I can guarantee you the passion will last forever.

Da Maria

Secretly wanted to whisk your Amore to the Amalfi coast for a holiday but the bank balance only allowed Bali?  Never fear, Da Maria is here!  This bright, vibrant and so very tasty trattoria, [whilst not exactly romantic but oh so much fun], leaves Pettitenget at the door and transforms instantly into Positano. Your better half is not the only thing you will fall in love with here – the pasta is perfect, the pizzas are delectable, the Campari bar is the best and the staff are insanely amazing. Da Maria will be sure to impress your love, especially if they like it loud!

PIZZA PARADISE: Hanks Liquor and Pizza

Lets get this straight, I love PIZZA, and have searched Bali high and low looking for pizza perfection, and finally I am positive I have found it – Hanks dishes up the best on the island.

Situated in Oberoi Street, but well past the crazy part, on the way to Kudeta, look up as your heading down the road and you will spot the Hanks Pizza & Liquor sign that shines bright and screams out at you “come on in”. You will find it right above the Sailors Falls Womens Boutique. Head up the flight of stairs and you have landed in Pizza Paradise.

Hanks Pizza

Slip on inside (where the AC is cool) or hang on the upstairs balcony and grab a seat at the long communal dining table – either spot is great with tunes playing and happy staff all ready for you, the whole place has a really hipster vibe that you can feel as soon as you hit that last step.

Hanks Pizza Grab a menu and this is where the hard part starts – what to choose? Everything on the menu is DELISH! Each pizza has a rock n roll name, but with massive Italian flavor – our favorites are The Dylan with pork and fennel meatballs, The AXL with spicy salami and the Siousxie with King Prawns and Roasted peppers – to die for I tell you. The crusts are thin and crispy and the toppings are generous and scrumptious.

Hanks Pizza

That along with some lip-smacking pasta (again amazing – try the Mac & Cheese –  again DIE – this dish is freeeking beyond words !) and some cool tossed salads, you and your mates can order a couple of dishes and share them all – a great way to eat, you get to try a whole lot more this way. Be sure to wash it down with a cold beer, or if you are like me and love a COCKTAIL, Hanks shakes up some absolute beauties. Try the Holy Bloody Mother of Mary, Watermelon Spritzer and trying to be healthy? Give the Health Kick a go, filled with Belvedere, kale, pineapple & lemon juice with a dash of coconut water – kind of like being healthy…but not.

Hanks Pizza


Everything about this place is hip, cool and crazy, from the urban edgy feel, to the menus that sit in old vinyl records. The bad boy rock n roll theme is laid on thick and contributes to the fun, party, cruisy atmosphere.

Hanks is open for lunch and dinner or even if your not up for a pizza it a cool hangout for a drink or 5  – they have two up Tuesdays and live music on Thursdays. You would be crazy not to put Hanks on your list for a cruisy night out with friends or family whilst you’re in town.

This super cool spot is sometimes hard to find – but once you do, you will find yourself coming back and telling all your mates about it – promise.
