Salvatore's has some of the best pizza in Madison! We love the Tuesday date-night special: a bottle of wine, pizza, and salad for under $30 (and it's good wine!)

Robinia Courtyard is a secret back patio adjacent to Jardin Restaurant, MadisonTap, and Black Locust Cafe. If you really want to impress your date, take them here in the summer! It's secluded but right on Washington Ave. with a surprisingly stunning patio. Share tapa-style small plates, or go for the large plates.
