You can see candid photos of the couple leaving the restaurant here. It seems like the two aren't trying to keep to keep their romance a secret, but if they are, they really suck at it.

A source told People, "They acted like a couple. They ordered pasta and shared the food. She seemed very into him — she was smiling a lot." They also added that the romance is "new and nothing serious." Excuse you, sharing pasta is VERY serious, and I would only share my carbs with someone I was very, very into.

Of course, both of the singers have been in high-profile relationships before. The Weeknd dated model Bella Hadid for about a year and a half before splitting in November, and Gomez was on-again, off-again with Justin Bieber for several years. Selena is also pretty good friends with Gigi Hadid, and we wonder what she has to say about Gomez moving in on her sister's ex.

But hey, Selena should know better than anyone that the heart wants what it wants, and she clearly is not keeping her hands to herself.
