Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's romantic date

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's romantic date

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston enjoyed a romantic meal at an Italian restaurant.

The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker and 'The Night Manager' star were spotted dining at Gemelli Italian restaurant in Queensland, Australia, where Taylor told the staff how excited she was to try the food.

A source said: "They had dinner at Gemelli Italian restaurant. Taylor told the staff that Italian is her favourite food and she was very excited to try the food.

"Taylor and Tom walked in hand-in-hand and left the same way. They spent several hours at dinner before returning to their hotel in a chauffeured car."

And the couple - who started dating soon after the 26-year-old singer split from Calvin Harris - have been equally gracious to the fans they've met along the way.

An insider added to PEOPLE magazine: "They have encountered fans inside the hotel several times and have been very gracious."

Meanwhile, Taylor reportedly thinks she is "in love" with Tom.

A source said: "She is having a blast travelling with him. He is very romantic and attentive towards her. He is extremely charming. He also makes sure she feels safe wherever they go together.

"She is on cloud nine and really enjoying this quality time they are spending. She texted her close friends and said, 'I think I am in love and I never felt this way before!'"

And it is no surprise that the pair got together because "Tom checks off a lot of boxes" for her.

An insider shared: "Tom checks off a lot of boxes for Taylor. He's hot, smart, talented, British, everything she's into. What's not to like? She's going with it and why shouldn't she? They have been bonding over the industry, their childhoods, where they are from. It's the getting-to-know-you phase. Taylor is just happy to have the time to meet someone new and move on from Calvin."
