Fairly standard Italian food. The best is the pasta, and unless you're a confirmed carnivore you may find the veggie options are a good choice: I had the gnocchi, with a lovely fresh tomato sauce. We nearly didn't have desserts, but these are great - loads of effort goes into them.

I have enjoyed Romero for the past 30 years. The place is continuously superb and the quality of the food and service is still excellent. Romero is part of any authentic Amman fine dining experience and I strongly recommend it.

Romero is a lovely Italian restaurant in Amman. We went there several times for dinner primarily with other friends. The food was excellent, service great.

very nice restaurant in Amman, it serves the best delicious food in Amman and Jordan, the pizza and pastas are great. I recommend for dessert the "pain perdu" it's amazing. It's facing intercontinental hotel, so it's easy to get in.

The food was delicious and the atmosphere is very nice at this Italian restaurant. However, I don't feel it is necessarily a good value as it seemed highly overpriced for what you got. I'd go again for special occasions if invited by others, but my husband and I won't go again if its just us as we can find a... More

I've been visiting Romero since I was a little kid growing up in Amman, and have always enjoyed my meals there. The atmosphere inside is great - a warm, comfortable environment (though we had to ask them to turn down the very loud background music). We had a lovely selection of classic Italian starters, which were delicious. However, my veal... More

My customer took me to this restaurant for a business dinner. It was close to my hotel - the Intercontinental. The restaurant was full of people the evening we went so I would recommend reservations. It is a very old restaurant in a converted villa house. Very nice decorations and the service was excellent. I had a mango/ avocado salad... More

Romero seems to be the back drop choice for locals when they want to dine in large groups and the seating is very flexible. The place is nicely decorated especially around Christmas time. I enjoyed the mango & endive salad which is a change from the replicated salads offered here. The grilled salmon was delicious but the veggies were hardly... More

This place has been around for a while, and it still remains the best Italian place in Amman. The pasta is amazing, very fresh and very tasty (try the 3 type pasta, and if your lucky enough the chef can sometimes make it into a 5 type pasta to share). They have good seafood as well and great steaks. The... More
