The music at elegant Culinaria is subtle yet relaxing, the lighting is perfectly dim and the colors are Tuscan. And, as you know, anything Italian is romantic. You don’t have to love felines to feel the heat at Krazy Kat’s Restaurant, but it doesn’t hurt. The scrumptious cuisine and lovely lighting are enticing, but the whimsical decor makes you chuckle—and laughter is sexy. Culinaria, 1812 Marsh Road, No. 10, Wilmington, 475-4860, culinariarestaurant.com; Krazy Kat’s, 528 Montchanin Road, Wilmington, 888-4200, krazykatsrestaurant.com
