Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens kept the Valentine fire burning with a romantic dinner on Sunday night, Celebuzz reports exclusively.

The two Disney stars braved a cool night in Southern California to cuddle together at the romantic Hollywood hideaway Pace, a fellow diner reports.

“They were very affectionate, holding hands,” says the diner. “They chose to sit next to each other rather than across from each other.”

Zac, who recently turned 21, had a glass of red wine. Vanessa, 20, was wearing a dress, while Zac was dressed warm in a red flannel shirt.

Vanessa had thrown Zac a party at Pace for his 21st birthday in October, People magazine reported at the time. Guests at the Zac’s party included High School Musical co-stars Ashley Tisdale and Monique Coleman, along with Brittany Snow, Michelle Trachtenberg and Amanda Bynes.

Zac and Vanessa were spotted on a romantic getaway vacation on an island off the coast  of Brazil earlier in the month.

Zac was spotted last week shirtless on a hike outside of Los Angeles.
