Due Forni

Mom said sharing is caring. And that’s exactly what you’ll want to do at this west-side hot spot, where lovers canoodle over panzanella salad, charred octopus and authentic thin pizzas (chewy Neapolitan or crispy Roman).

Everything can be enjoyed family-style, although after 8 p.m. the kid-friendly scene begins to give way to romantic lighting and bottles of wine.

Recently, owner Alex Taylor has started using those blazing-hot Cirigliano due forni (two ovens) to roast a variety of meats in addition to the Nueske bacon that chef Carlos Buscaglia spoons over creamy chocolate gelato for dessert. Remember: Nothing says “I love you” like bacon.

Nachos, Diablo’s Cantina

A tequila temple such as Diablo’s is bound to have stellar nachos. This open-air, Strip-side bar piles its nachos high into a perfect mound of tortilla chips carefully stacked with various cheeses, pico de gallo and sour cream. Don’t forget to add spicy rotisserie chicken shredded on top, and for extra devilishness, there’s Diablo’s signature salsa to fuel the flames. $16, in Monte Carlo, 730-7979.
