Solid choice for Steaks and Italian

I visted this restuarant on at least 3 occations the past year and had a good meal every time. It is a good choice for a casual lunch and a more formal supper. The food is well prepared and good value. They have a wide variety of food and drink and seem the excel at most types of food.

We visited the La Romantica restaurant on 2 occasions in December 2014. Once as a couple and the 2nd time we were joined by a business associate! Both instances we found the food great, pleasant ambiance out on the deck and inside the restaurant! We found it to be good value for our money! Will definitely visit La Romantica Somerset... More

Had dinner there with my wife. Extensive food and wine menu. Had the calamari starter and trio fillet which were both cooked to perfection. My wife had the avacado ritz and pork belly which she also enjoyed. Service and ambiance were excellent. A bit pricy but good nonetheless.

The food is still just okay, but far overpriced. The service was good. ...but the location is bad, and I believe can be very... More

We were part if a very large party so it is difficult to judge. The set menu was good value for money. The service was a little slow but our waiter was helpful and friendly. It is not fine dining but the food is quite nice. I would choose to sit on the balcony if the weather was nice. Inside... More

A half size ribbon of sushi around a half normal amount of rice.... More

Always busy and a very cosy feel inside - similar to Dros restaurant. Good friendly service from the waiters.

I don't know why I didn't put this on TripAdvisor earlier, to warn people about this specific La Romantica...we went there on a Sunday evening for the pizza special, just to be called back from our car after we ate, because we didn't pay the right amount. It was really quiet that evening and I left the money on the... More

Went there on Sunday 4th of May for a family lunch, what a disappointment. Poor service, poor food, whole restaurant, bar area and toilets area dirty, cutlery dirty, not at all La Romantica standards. Sorry to say but we wil not be back.
