They renovated the garden which is much nicer now. Good food, but not like before

The food and service has gone down since it first opened. They renovated the garden area which is much nicer now, but I wish they would focus more on service and the consistency in the quality of the food. This still remains one of the best places in Amman but they need a lot of hard work to get... read more

Very delicious launch, I really like this play, very quite and fancy environment. Hospitality is one of the restaurants I ever seen

I visited it last summer in 2014, the taste were really really good and delicious, the portions are fair, the creamy sauce is very heavy, I think you will earn 1 KG immediately after a meal, the atmosphere is so nice and quite, but the prices are really really really high, we were 3 and we ordered only 3 dishes...

Love the food (homemade Italian pasta dishes), LOVE the atmosphere and great service - a must for visitors who are interested in a classy, inviting restaurant with a great menu, attentive and polite staff and cultured clientele.

We were looking to have nice Italian food at Romero to celebrate my wife's Birthday as she loved Pastas. The food was disappointing except for one dish. My wife asked to have a different dish as the served one was not to her taste, I felt sorry for her.

Having returned to Amman for the first time I'm 7 years, I was curious to know if the Romero was still up there with the best Italian restaurants in the region. And I would say it is. Firstly, the atmosphere is just so classy: you feel like I'm an old godfather movie. And I like traditional Italian restaurants: no experiments... More

Just over the road from the Intercontinental Jordan lies the little gem that is Romero. We were booked in by the marvellous Mr Raafat, the concierge at the Intercon, for our Wedding Anniversary (34th). What a great move. The music is just right and the charming chap in the very fine waist coat was a really perfect host. The food... More

Me and my fiance picked Romero for our engagement dinner in November 2014, we were 15 people and picked a set menu, they also allowed us to bring a cake (did not charge extra for this) as well as some sugar cookie giveaways. Staff were very friendly and helpful, they printed out the menu for our guests with our names... More
