Visited here on a very quiet weekday night (second visit). Thought I would give it another chance as the first visit resulted in tasteless bland food. This was far, far worse. Thought I would play it safe with a steak but it case swimming in a marmite sauce - just vile. Service was appalling too - just so slow. Then... More

We heard about Romantica from a few friends and gave them a call on the off chance last Friday night to see if they had a last minute table for two adults and two kids. We were surprised they did and we arrived and were shown to a lovely table. The mood in this place is lovely with the dim... More

A rainy Sunday lunchtime that turned out to be a real gem of a day. We hadn't booked anywhere for lunch, and it was literally a spur of the moment decision. We were really surprised to get a table, and the nice part for us was that although there were a number of people in there, it wasn't overly busy... More

We visited with friends on a busy Saturday night. The service and food quality was top notch. It is not Michelin star standard but very tasty authentic Italian food that tasted very fresh. The decor is a bit dated but after a few minutes you forget and focus on the generous menu and specials board. I hope this place continues... More

I don't know why me and my husband haven't eaten at Romantica before, as we don't live far away and eat out very frequently. I suppose its because we already have several favourite Italian restaurants. We finally ate there this Friday and can't wait to go back. The welcome was warm and very friendly and we were sat in a...
