Nobody expected a better Italian than Casa Sofia, still it happened!

I am sorry, Casa Sofia, but Romeo totally stole my heart and palate! Tips: book a table; try main dishes, while forgetting about pizza (it's easy enough to find an awesome pizza in PdC); order hot lava cake with vanilla ice cream, that would put any European resto to shame; come back for more :)

Seriously awesome food! Excellent service, wonderful salads, try the arugula, pear and walnut salad. I had the salmon ravioli in a cream sauce and some of the best eggplant ptarmigan I've ever eaten. Pretty good selection of wines also. As for the long waits, we went on a Tuesday evening around 6:45 and were seated and served promptly, I think... More

Over and over again I walk to this little Italian restaurant because the owner is always cooking up a storm! You can see him in action cooking one master piece after another with flames and steam throughout your dinner as part of your view. The food is wonderful and always hot. The service is quick, but like I said its... More

We tried something new and don't regret it. Nice Italian restaurant, away from 5th Ave. It's a small location and you can expect to wait at the later supper hour. Menu has a good selection that will meet the tastes of most. Great selection of pastas, seafood and pizza. Good atmosphere. Staff was fabulous. But don't go with a larger... More

At the suggestion of our Hotel concierge for the best Italian in town, we headed off to Romeos. He said the ambience wasn't as flashy as those restaurants found along 5th, but the food was the best - Italian Chef and Italian Owner. We arrived to find about a 30 minute wait on Saturday night for a tabletop of 2.... More

The food was incredible. Freshly prepared (you can't be in a hurry!) and it is worth every minute of waiting. The staff was amazing, very accommodating. We went back the very next night, all 7 of us!

homemade pasta and fish - the best. Everything was cooked well and good. Just a note: the place is not very big and itwould be better to book the day before for not having to wait too long

The pasta was homemade but extremely salty. Even the salads were heavily salted. Two of our party could not even finish the pasta because of the salt! Service was polite, but slow, even by Mexican standards. We watched our son's bowl of soup sit for 20 minutes before someone brought it to him.
