Great food, service and people!
I had this week's chef's special BRAISED BEEF CHEEKS with farro "risotto," broccoli rabe, rosemary, and red wine jus. This combination of flavors are delicious together. The beef cheek has the flavor and a texture of firm bone marrow, with a buttery, almost silkie smooth farro and bitterness of the broccoli rabe, just perfect together. Very enjoyable dinner again. Thank you.
We went for restaurant week and the selections were great for our whole party. We love supporting places that always serve great food,and have great staff. Bravo you did it again!
Have eaten there on several occasions and the food and service have been top notch.
Fabulous experience during restaurant week
You wouldn't know the place existed from the outside, but a great find close to the Old City. Food was excellent, along with a great wine list.
Food was delicious,service was excellent.
Wonderful, romantic dinner with prompt service, great portions, and candle light vibes.
Food was wonderful, service was great and close to Penns Landing. Great date night spot!
We went to Bistro Romano for the first time for our anniversary dinner. It was wonderful. The food was delicious and the service was great. Very nice ambiance. They had a live piano player too upstairs. We will definitely be returning. I recommend the grilled octopus appetizer! It was cooked perfectly.
Some food was good, some was mediocre. Chicken dish was good. Risotto was mediocre, especially at 27 dollars. Service was OK but waiter was not very attentive. They need more non meat options.
Amazing food and service as always.
Our anniversary dinner was amazing. We only come on special occasions because we have 6 children and money is tight. So we save our money to enjoy a wonderful dinner at bistro Romano. Everyone from the first person greeting us at the door until it’s time to leave we’re all so polite. And the chef is on point every time. Never had a bad meal ever Thank you
5 star restaurant at none of the cost. Must visit if you're in the area.
Service was not good. Not attentive. Bread, gnocchi and mussels were fantastic, mac n cheese was under seasoned and we wished the lobster ravioli was in a cream sauce and drinks were good, atmosphere was great
Great experience dining. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine menu. Continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in the city.
Great service, amazing food. They made sure to take good care of us, love this place!
Loved the service, atmosphere, and food!
Tonight I had the special BRAISED SHORT RIB with creamy polenta, king trumpet mushrooms, cherry tomato. The beef was so tender you could cut it with a spoon, but I think the star of the plate were the tomatoes. They had an acidity, I think they were pickled, that cut through the richness of the other ingredients. Delicious.
Had a great experience here. There gnocchi was amazing. Would absolutely come back and try the tasting menu.
Had a wonderful night out with my parents and new friends who were first time visitors to the city, everyone loved their meals and the ambiance. Special thanks to Michael for sending over after drinks for the table, so kind! I’ll be back for the October tasting!
Yum. We had a very good time partly because our waiter was so happy to make our experience feel special and partly because the food was just so good. The spicy mussels were delicious and the lamb breast is still in my dreams of a superb entree. We will be back! Added plus, the recommended wine. Perfect with our meals.
Excellent meal great service!
This night I had the ROASTED VEAL TENDER special with purple cauliflower "couscous," artichoke, sauce barigoule. The term tender does not define the texture of the veal accurately. It was silkie, velveteen softness. And being offset with the piquant taste of the cauliflower was just a great idea. Thank you for the meal.
Great menu and wine list, excellent food, attentive and knowledgeable staff, very quiet and romantic spot.
The food was amazing, good size portions, drinks were delicious, service was fast and attentive. Will definitely be back!
We come here every year for our anniversary. Always excellent! Sean the bartender is our favorite!
I had both of these chef's specials, the SEARED FOIE GRAS
with banana crust, millet, scotch-raisin puree; and the CARAMELIZED PORK CHOP with spaetzle, apple, baby fennel. The foie gras was light and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness from the puree and crunch from the banana crust. Excellent. The pork was delicious with the buttery soft spaetzle. A beautiful and delicious combination of flavors.
A true authentic Italian feel! We went here off of a friend’s recommendation and we are happy we did. Food was fabulous, wine was great and our server Mike was very friendly and had great recommendations. Will definitely go again.
Food was amazing. Service was perfect. Very knowledgeable server
Took my son for his birthday. I have been going to Bistro Romano for 20 plus years. Love their food and wine selection.
One word suffices — wonderful!
Great!!! No complaints - one of our favorite go-to restaurants.
The octopus starter was overcooked and the calamari HD too much stuff on it., just rings like cuttlefish, no legs and had an unpleasant membrane. The fettuccine Bolognese was excellent, the gnocchi was good and the lobster ravioli was good. Carrots were yummy, shoshitos were ok. Neat setting on the wine cellar area. Very nice server and welcoming staff.
Our server (kish- sp?) made our experience amazing. Very attentive. My dirty martini was delicious and my Caesar salad and lobster ravioli did not disappoint!
Great service from Tom. We were on a tight schedule and he met our deadline. Entire staff was friendly and helpful. Portions were not skimpy. Pasta dishes were prepared properly (al dente). The chef did a marvelous job. Highly recommend this restaurant.
We went here for an anniversary and had an amazing experience. The place is intimate, romantic and beautiful. The staff, very accommodating and friendly. The food was incredible, had all vegetarian/pasta options....5 courses and dessert. The freshness of vegetables and flavors left us amazed. I would recommend to anyone for a delicious meal in a great spot. Also, enjoyed the piano player setting the mood. Awesome place!!!!
I had the COCOA GEMELLI with confit duck leg, manchego, orange, fennel. It was a very good refreshing summer pasta, delicious.
