Our lunch at Romeo's was great; we had the pumpkin ravioli, caprese salad, bruschetta, diavola pizza and aperol spritz and all were delicious. Would highly recommend for either a sit down meal or delivery. I think it's important to support our local businesses during this time and Romeo's didn't disappoint.

Food and wine excellent. Service not so much, no welcome on arrival and no goodbye when we left. Service was poor espy when there were only 3 tables booked including us.
Shame as being made to feel welcome counts for a lot and if you don’t get that vibe then you don’t go back!

Tried this last Saturday for the first time. Pizzas were incredibly good as was the wine. Will definitely return - nice to have this bistro in Shirley

Good service and a nice evening, but was spoilt when we went to pay at the table with another assistant, to the manager shouted across the room in front of the other customers “THE CARD WAS DECLINED” totally unprofessional behaviour leading us to feel embarrassed!! Especially as when we re-entered the same card it went through..

Nice little place that has missed the mark, hate to moan as like to support local businesses. the food ok I had spinach and ricotta tortellini it was the stuff that u get from a packet at Tesco’s dry and rubbery. Had to ask for water 3 times and there’s only 6 tables in there. Polite service but room for a lot of improvement

Food was very very good - good portions and great quality. Restaurant is smallish but well set out and with a lovely atmosphere - just right I think. The missing star is for the very slow service - we sat down at 7pm and the 3 courses took us right to 10pm curfew time! understandably they have a very popular takeaway pizza service (which is what brought us to their attention in the first place!) but it seemed they were largely prioritised and we were left to wait a little longer than we felt was necessary. Overall though, would highly recommend and will most definitely be using them again for both takeaway and eating in. Very pleased to have a good Italian locally!

A real gem tucked on the corner in Shirley. I've lived in the area for a couple of years now and am always walking down the main road to get to the Co-Op, but I hadn't noticed Romeo on the corner until last week. I had a look at the menu from outside and liked the look of it so decided to book a table on Friday night. It is a very small restaurant, with even less tables due to Covid, but the lighting was cozy and the music made it a really nice atmosphere.

I ordered one of their pizzas after being recommended by a member of staff, and my girlfriend ordered the pumpkin ravioli. The food was amazing, especially for the price. The only thing I would say is that the portion size for the ravioli was maybe a little small, but would be fine if you ordered a starter as well.

I would recommend to anyone thinking of coming here and will definitely be coming back.

Thank you!

Lovely proper sourdough pizzas.
Why doesn’t every pizza restaurant serve them?
