Is there anything more classically romantic than Hollywood? We don't think so, which is why we think that Sinema is one of the best romantic restaurants in Nashville. Sinema has a classic art deco interior that will transport couples on a romantic night out to a different time and place. They also play movies on a big screen during meals, so enjoy a classic movie (usually in black and white) while you enjoy outstanding food.
