Just in time for an evening chock-full of charm and sappy seductions, a Hilton Head Island restaurant has been named one the Top 100 Most Romatic Restaurants in the country.

The list was compiled on Open Table, a website that allows users to make restaurant reservations online.

Paul Colella, co-owner of The Studio - An Artistic Dining Experience, said it's an honor to have the love and passion he and his wife Lunonia put into the restaurant recognized.

"The atmosphere that we try to create here -- even though it's fine dining -- we try to make it feel like people are coming our own dining room," Colella said. "We try not to be the uptight upscale restaurant that people are used to, so when people see and acknowledge that that's what we're doing ... it's everything we could dream of."

As of 3 p.m. today, there was only one reservation open for Valentine's Day dinner.

The Library Restaurant in Myrtle Beach also made the list.

The Studio is open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday starting at 5:30 p.m and is located at 20 Executive Park Road.

For reservations: 843-785-6000
