In a photo exclusive to PEOPLE, Rock and Bell were seen outside restaurant Giorgio Baldi over the weekend, where the comedian wore a light-colored long-sleeved top and trousers, finishing the look in brown shoes.

The actress/director, meanwhile, kept it similarly casual in a pair of flared pedal-pusher jeans, a black crop top and matching shoes.

A source at the Italian eatery tells PEOPLE that the two "had a late dinner date" that "looked romantic," adding, "Not too much PDA, but you could tell from the smiles and laughter that they had fun."

"They shared some popular pasta dishes and seemed to enjoy their date," the Giorgio Baldi insider shares.
