One of the best restaurants I've ever been to is Cafe Christina's
in Pembroke, MA. Its gourmet Italian food -- more than just
spaghetti and meatballs -- is prepared so delicately that your plate
looks like a work of art. I almost didn't want to take a bite for
fear of ruining the gorgeous display.
The food is spectacular. My personal favorite is the marinated pork
tenderloin with garlic mashed potatoes. A different
vegetable is served nightly, but if you're lucky you'll get the butternut

The waiters and waitresses are particularly nice
and seem to want everything to be perfect for your dinner.
The atmosphere at Cafe Christina's is very romantic: dim lights,
soft-colored decor. It's a perfect place for a first date,
or any date, for that matter. It's a good place to have

I, too, said "I hate white chocolate! I won't try that!" but
after a little heckling I tried it and LOVE it. It is a
MUST for every meal there, and don't forget the incredible
Some items can be a little pricey, but it's definitely worth
the splurge. You'll have a delicious dinner,
a great atmosphere, and some quiet time for you and your date.
