My girlfriend and I went out for a romantic meal at Romantica a couple of weeks ago and we both thought it was amazing. The extensive list of specials along with a great standard menu meant that we had a great choice of food. I had the lobster and my girlfriend had lamb both excellent! Would recommend to everyone!

Great quality food, I personally don't really like the layout of the restaurant but have never failed to enjoy the food

My wife and I went on Friday evening with some friends, we had all been before but not for some while. The service was attentive and very friendly, a great choice of menu and a fabulous specials board. Between us we had Lobster, Prawns and Veal, both starters and mains were all perfectly cooked, very flavoursome and excently presented. With... More

Lots of people I have spoken to wax lyrical about this place and on this basis I was a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, its a pretty decent restaurant but it didn't quite live up to the hype. The staff are excellent, really attentive, friendly and go the extra mile. The food is tastey but a bit underwhelming though... More

We visited with family the other week. I have to say the service was absolutely superb, extremely attentive and there was a genuine level of service provided that was second to none. The menu presented us with a good level of choice and I found it reasonably priced for an independent restaurant. The quality of the food was high and... More

I visited Romantica for lunch on 23rd June 2014. There is a lunch menu, two courses for £9.95, which represents excellent value for money. I started with the crab cakes and chilli sauce. There were three good-sized crab cakes on a bed of lettuce with tomato and cucumber accompaniments. The chilli dipping sauce had just the right amount of heat... More

Romantica, in the centre of Mere Green, is very close to where our children live but we have only eaten there together on one previous occasion. My memory was of a restaurant lacking in atmosphere and serving adequate but unexceptional food. I finally gave it a second chance last weekend and have to say that I was so pleasantly surprised....

Me and my partner came here as we had read some good reviews. Our first impressions were very good. The staff were friendly and the décor was nice. We ordered our starters and they were very good. I had the meatballs and my partner the king prawns. However our mains were disappointing. My chicken was very dry with little flavour... More

On arriving we were greeted by manager who asked all our names and asked if special occasion. From start to finish the staff, food and service were second to none, will be back soon. Waiters also sang happy birthday in Italian to our son. Would definitely recommend.

A recieved a lovely welcome from the team with kisses on our hands as we entered. The restaurant is clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The service we recieved was attentive but not too disruptive. A good selection on the menu catering for all tastes including Classic Italian dishes and some nice surprises. The portions are large but we struggled through... More
