There was plenty of amore on the menu during a recent night out for George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin.

The engaged couple, who recently obtained a marriage license in advance of their planned nuptials in Italy, dined at the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este at Cernobbio on Aug. 7 near Clooney’s Lake Como home.

“George kissed Amal and she gave him a neck massage,” an observer says. “They looked very much in love. After dinner the two took a stroll through the gardens arm-in-arm.”

Clooney, 53, and Alamuddin, 36, also went for a boat ride before leaving town on a private jet.

“After a long boat ride around Lake Como, George and Amal docked with family,” the source says. “They looked very happy as Amal watched George tend to boating duties.”

In July, Clooney told Variety of his lawyer fiancée, “I’m marrying up.”
