A flurry of specials is available this Valentine's at Pastini to warm your heart.

Try the Cannelloni di Carne, a hearty stuffed pasta dish stuffed with beef and pork, shallots, and herbs and topped with mozzarella and housemade marinara. It's a perfect dish for a romantic dinner, isn’t it? Simply delicious.

Having a glass of La Quercia Aglianico from the Abruzzo region would go well with this. The flavorful plum and spice notes in this robust varietal are made in a fresh, immediate style.

Remember also to try their seasonal specialty, the Ginger Jack Mule, a mule mug filled with ice that combines Jack Daniels, apple cider, ginger beer, lemon, and bitters. Or try its  Winter Berry Italian Soda, which pairs cranberry and blackberry and tastes as good as it looks, for refreshment.

900 Wall’s private dining room is the perfect location for any event, especially this Valentine's. Up to 35 guests can be seated for dinner or 45 for a cocktail party in the room, which can be completely closed off for privacy. For large groups, the seasonal family-style menus are perfect because they offer a distinctive communal-style dining experience. 

They also have a room next to the Private Dining Room that overlooks the rest of the restaurant in addition to the enclosed space. Cocktail parties or other events that call for a livelier atmosphere are perfect for this area, which is called the Mezzanine. For bigger groups, there is also the option of restaurant "buy-outs."
