The stage is set at Valentini's Vicino Lago, for a romantic night for many couples. Flowers and hearts are lined up on different shelves. Valentine's Day is booked for the Duluth restaurant. But they themselves, have something else to celebrate that day, other than love.

"It's amazing how fast it can go when you're busy. It's been really busy lately. We call it Valentini's Day, and we make the most of it, because it's the day we opened," Carol Valentini shared with us. That was six years ago.

She believes people come to the restaurant for the comfort food they make, and the romantic atmosphere. "We'll have live music and everything."

If you didn't make a reservation for Friday, you can always come down on Saturday and experience almost the same thing. 

And in case you were wondering, the supper club in Chisholm called Valentini's is 80 years old.
