I went her for my birthday w/ a group of friends and everyone was pleased w/ their meals. I got the meatloaf, portion was large. Couldnt have been more pleased. Staff was wonderful!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't miss!The food is consistently excellent at Americano. If you want a delicious meal, you can't miss with Americano.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty good!The food did not knock my socks off but it was very good. The dates were very interesting and good. The calamari was cooked perfectly. The mussels, however, were underwhelming in terms of flavor. Two people in our party ordered the 14 oz. strip steak which was just mediocre (and over priced at $36). I ordered the short ribs which were awesome - probably the best thing all evening.
Overall I liked this place but I don't see what all the hype is about. I would go back with a coupon or if I was in the area for something. Service was great, though. Everyone was very friendly.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome restaurantwhat a wonderful place - interesting menu choices and selections. we'll be back!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHad an enjoyable time at Americano.Had an enjoyable time at Americano.

However, we intend to return soon as previous times the service was outstanding.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Friday night mealMixed green and wedge salads were large and chock full of goodies, not overdressed.
The cornmeal coated fried oysters were still soft and moist inside, crunchy outside, WOW! My steak and my wife's salmon entree were large, tasty, and perfectly prepared.
The shortcake and berry dessert was a fitting end to a wonderful meal. Can't wait to visit again. This has become our favorite Cleveland eating spot.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AM5 star plus!Outstanding 5 star plus! Tucked behind beautiful ornate iron doors is the entrance. I was a bit intimidated at first, but the staff is not stuffy at all! One can tell that they LOVE their jobs!
The menu is not extensive & prices are reasonable. The server brings bread to the table along with an herbed oil & butter. FYI: Salads are not included with the meal & the portions are not large. The chef is co-owner, so that says a lot about the quality of your meal. If you are a "super taster" you will savor every bite on your plate.
My 1st visit was a birthday get-together & they welcomed us with open arms & went above & beyond to make this a special evening for us & every guest at our table said they would be back!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, nice portions,Delicious food, nice portions, friendly atmosphere !

She had great suggestions but also listened to what we were thinking to make our evening special. It was a celebration of two birthdays. We just wanted to relax and have a great meal which was excellent from the crab cakes thru the pork chop with sweet potato waffles au pomagranete syrup and apple slaw with creme brulee to finish it off. Margree had the duck which was also excellent. Their dinningroom isn't open on Mondays but a limited menu is available at the bar and includes their special pasta with huge meatballs (just the way I always make them). Definately will be back!! Any occassion will be special!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
