Fabulous food and service!
A very nice restaurant that overall did a great job. The appetizer, grilled octopus, was delicious as were the fingerling potatoes that accompanied it . The Caesar salads were a bit overdressed but, the leaves were crisp and fresh. My wife had grilled wahoo and it was moist and cooked perfectly. I had the veal ossobuco and it was fork tender and came off the bone with ease. The polenta was a tad creamy , however, I ate it all…….very smooth texture. The wine list is extensive and well thought out. We drank a 2017 Valpolicella Ripasso that was perfect for the veal as well as the wahoo. The dessert of cannoli was flavorful with good ricotta and chocolate chips. We also had a bowl of gelato, chocolate and vanilla, that was not up to my standard for gelato. I thought the vanilla was too soupy and the chocolate was almost freezer hardened. The atmosphere, ambiance and service were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I will return for a future dining event.
Excellent. Love the gluten free menu. Our server, Brianna was first class. As usual, we'll be back.
The food was great. The service was amazing. And the restaurant itself was warm and welcoming. The prices were a little high, but I'm told to expect that in Philly. In addition, they even offered to call our cab for us when we were finished. I would certainly recommend the Bistro Romano - but, be sure to book your reservation!
We had a terrific time. Excellent restaurant, terrific waiter, and great food. You made my wife’s birthday a special one! Thank you.
We couldn’t have asked for a better meal, service, or ambiance. We were celebrating our anniversary and we were given a complementary glass of champagne on the house which was so unnecessary but so nice!! Our server was amazing and so knowledgeable. We’ll be back over and over.
28th Wedding Anniversary was just perfect at Bistro Romano. Food , Ambiance, Service just top notch. As usual.
The portions are large and sangrias are amazing! I highly recommend booking in the piano bar.
Amazing, as always! Order the Brodetto, you won’t be disappointed!
Awesome! Great food and service
Had the Cacio e Pepe over orecchiette, with black pepper, broccoli, grana padano. The sauce made with the grana was just creamy deliciousness, with a velveteen texture.
the service and the food were very good. Recommend Bistro Romano highly
On this first day that it feels like autumn, I had the BRAISED VEAL OSSOBUCO with the soft polenta, broccoli rabe, wild rice gremolata off the regular menu. The veal just came off the bone and was moist and flavorful, and paired well with the cheesey, creamy polenta and broccoli rabe. Perfect for the start of the season. Thank you for the delicious dinner.
excellent food and great service in a very nice location
Had the special RACK OF LAMB with tomato couscous, roasted parsnip, spiced pine nuts, red wine jus, it was superb. The lamb was served at the perfect temperature and the couscous paired with the meal, it has a buttery soft texture.
Our waiter was very attentive & accommodating. Also very knowledgeable about the menu.
Celebration of our 5th anniversary. Food and service was great!
Love the ambience of Bistro Romano. We just happen to be next to a large table so the noise level was a little high. Otherwise service and food were good.
This is your go to place for a great meal with a very romantic atmosphere
Tonight I had the special RIGATONI with the broccoli rabe, beech mushrooms, chorizo bolognese. The bitterness of the broccoli rabe was offset by the spiciness of the chorizo and the earthiness of the mushrooms. Delicious.
It was me and my partner’s anniversary and I think every staff member wished us a happy anniversary or congratulations at some point and they brought complimentary champagne to the table! Our server was so nice and all of the food came out so fast! The manager was very hands on and very nice! Everything was delicious, the restaurant is beautiful, we will definitely be going back!
(Get the calamari!!!!)
Such nice staff. The seafood stew was fabulous. So glad it was one of our picks while in Philly.
Great atmosphere, great food, romantic, great service, I love this place, been coming here for years , I had my 10 wedding anniversary here last night, they all wished us a happy anniversary and gave us 2 glasses of champagne bon the house!!! 10⭐
Our annual visit to Bistro does not disappoint !!! Portions were generous the the food was delicious. We’ve been eating here since 2010.
Loved the piano playing! Great food and service. Also the restaurant is very cool looking!
Amazing food and great ambiance… would definitely return.
We loved the warm, rustic atmosphere of the dining room. The prosciutto and melon appetizer and veal saltimbocca were delicious. Our waitress was attentive and very pleasant. We'll definitely return to try more dishes.
Great food, great wine, some parts of the interior are very lovely with the old stone. Where we were sitting did truly feel like sitting in a basement though
Awesome food, ambiance and service
I had the special Roasted Pork Belly with smashed fingerling potatoes, caulini and local radish salad. The porks flavor reminds me of a delicious Sunday pork roast, but with a buttery soft lardon, interspersed in each bite. The potatoes where soft and creamy and the radish helps to cut through the pork, making each bite slightly different.
The exterior look belies what is inside. Fabulous food and service
Wonderful comfortable friendly venue with great historical location, great food and service…
Food was just okay. Service was very slow. Our server wasn’t very attentive . But I guess it’s because it was busy .
30th wedding anniversary
A great time. We hadn’t been here since pandemic but we wanted to go into Philly.
Every dish was great, service top notch and the owner was tremendous.
I made a reservation but didn’t realize it was for bar area.
However the owner came up and really worked with us to get us downstairs (4 of us) even though all tables wee booked. That alone would earn them 5 stars.
Can’t wait to go back and this time I will book the correct table.
I had the special sliced ribeye & shrimp served over potato puree, escarole, red wine jus tonight and it was excellent. The ribeye steak was just so tender, it melted in my mouth like butter. Just cooked to perfection. The potato puree was smooth and rich with flavor, a perfect combination with the escarole and jus. Delicious.
Food was good and service was excellent, but they have these interrogation lamps over the 2 top tables. It was like having dinner in a police interrogation room.
Brianna is fantastic!
We were looking for a quiet date night for our 5 year wedding anniversary, and Bistro Romano did not disappoint! The ambiance was perfect, the food was amazing, and we got to relax and spend the night talking with little interruption. We highly recommend!
I had the chefs special SPAGHETTI with purple, green, white cauliflower, turnip, spicy breadcrumbs, bagna cauda cream. For being a mostly vegetarian meal, this was a very umami rich entree. Not only where the breadcrumbs spicy but the turnips have a great peppery taste and firm texture. The cream sauce has a sweet and velveteen softness. Just delicious.
