Bistro Romano Restaurant Review

: With its 18th-century historic bones, Bistro Romano is as attractive for its ambience as for its large portions of satisfying steak and veal dishes. The tableside Caesar salad is one of the best in town. Try the homey pastas, like the ravioli stuffed with lobster in a sherry cream sauce. Besides the traditional Italian dishes, the grilled lamb shank over stewed mixed beans with whipped goat cheese is a standout. For romantic nights, book an intimate table for two in the candlelit wine cellar. There's the piano bar for entertainment, often inspiring singalongs.
