Very slow service and attention to detail. Struggled to cope with multiple orders. Food was average and not particularly Italian. The chips which the were most disgusting chips I have ever tasted they were cold and probably cooked hours ago and then reheated. Not much Christmas atmosphere. Best thing were the puddings which were excellent. If I ever went again... More

On Thursday 18 December my friend and I went for a meal at The Romantica Italian Restaurant, this was our first visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. In fact the welcome, food and service were excellent. The restaurant has a lovely romantic atmosphere and the staff are very welcoming and nothing is too much for them. The... More

Went for lunch. Only two tables occupied so atmosphere was not great. It was very cold in there even though heating was on. Don't go on a cold winter's day. When I got home I was so cold I had to have a hot bath to warm up.My feet were absolutely frozen and I had shivers down my back. Food... More

Excellent lunch with group of colleagues. All well made, home cooked and packed with flavour. I finished with the dreaded Tiramisu because it often shows up poor restaurants, but this was tasty, light and authentic. Never been here before, but will come again. Price was more than usual because of the Christmas menu at this time of year, but would... More

Based on our first experience we went to Romantica for a second time this weekend to celebrate the birthdays of my wife and son in law. Much has already been said about the quality of the food and it was the same this time. The best italian food I've tasted bar none. I had pork belly this time and it... More

Pleasantly surprised delicious well presented tasty food . The scallop starter was goregous and the lasagne equally tasty . Staff very attentive very good service . My only criticism was the wait between courses and I feel maybe one more person working on the floor would have improved the experience , but nevertheless the evening was very pleasant and we...

Horrible! Not Authentic! I have no idea why they need a chef at all when they do not cook! We had a table for two on a Wednesday evening. We ordered Antipasti Romantica and Veal with Spaghetti. They had not a clue what Antipasti should be! I have visited Italy many times and Romantica should be ashamed! The cold only... More

Dear Sir I am sorry that you feel this way, our chefs are Italian themselves and they would be ashamed too if they serve German and Spanish salamis, why would we, when there are deciduous Italian products out there. These are what we put in our antipasti, Finocchione, Spianata, Speck, Parma Ham, (you can serch them on google and see... More
