It looks like the romance between Karina Smirnoff and Mario Lopez could be back on!

The gorgeous twosome, who ended an almost 2-year-long relationship earlier this summer, were recently spied canoodling over dinner at NYC’s Meatpacking District hotspot Bagatelle.

“They were super-flirty,” says an eyewitness of the love fest, “and very happy, kissing and cuddling.”

After Mario finished off a rib-eye steak and then split five hearty appetizers with his apparently on-again lady, the two (who were the last people in the restaurant) headed to the neighboring club Kiss & Fly for after-dinner drinks.

The Saved By The Bell star met professional dancer Karina in 2006 when they were partners on the third season of Dancing With The Stars.

When OK! first spoke to Mario and Karina after their split, they each played the blame game — on themselves!

"Right now, I wouldn’t make a good girlfriend," explained Karina, who added that she "thinks the world" of the hunky actor.

Meanwhile, Mario pointed the finger at himself for the split. "I wouldn’t date me right now," he confessed to OK!. "It wouldn’t be much fun."
