The most special tiny dark and hidden restaurant in all of Miami. There are no menus, just the owner/chef who barely speaks English. He comes over to your table, asks you "what are your favorite meals?" "What are you allergic to"? "What do you hate?" ....... & ta da- surprises you with a 7 course meal of your dreams!!!!!!! There's... More

This has been the best tasting menu we've ever had. The salmon carpaccio is unforgettable, as well as the pasta, risotto and everything else. The service is unique as well. Truly one of our favorites!

We decided to go on a Saturday and to our great surprise, we were able to get a reservation. We had not been at Romeo's for more than ten years! We were happy to see it is the same great restaurant we remembered. The salmon Carpaccio was delicious, perhaps less capers would have been a bit better. The fish was... More

We had the pleasure of dining here earlier this week. Romeo's is very unique. As stated elsewhere you merely express to Romeo what you like and don't and then a 6 course meal appears over 2 hours. All the food was very good and some truly extraordinary. Like the pasta. Décor is definitely very dated old school Italian but I... More

Romeo's Cafe is one of Coral Gables, nay South Floridas, best restaurants. Romeo and his staff will take you on a truly unique culinary experience. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy. 2 of his dishes were unforgettable; a truffle risotto that was exceptional and crispy roasted duck with a fresh raspberry sauce and baked apples. Price does limit it to... More

Romeo's cafe is a charming, small romantic restaurant. We requested a quiet table set off from the rest. We were seated in a little alcove surrounded by their red wine collection. The owner and chef, Romeo, came out to greet us and to explain what was unique about this restaurant. There is no menu, he offers a six course meal... More

Booked dinner for a party of 9 persons at this small, 8 table restaurant located in Coral Gales. The decor is classically elegant, maybe a bit on the dark side. We were quickly seated at our table at the reserved time. There is no menu at this restaurant; Romeo, the owner/chef comes to the table to ask what each of... More

I am not sure what some other reviewers are looking for but this was one of the best meals I have had in some time, including Europe, NYC, LA, Chicago, etc. It is pricey but what was delivered was worth every cent compared to faulty meals I have paid a little less for but received far lower food quality. I... More

Food is good, but for the price it could be better. Sweet sauces are too sweet in several courses. Remember that, since you do not choose the dishes. Romeo did not show up as he used to do to ask you in detail about your preferences, even though the waiter does ask and the service is very good. I will... More

Wow, what a delightful experience! The meal was fantastic and the having the Chef come to the table was a treat. The surprise of what was coming next let to the dining experience.
