This is a restaurant in a condo building hidden in Bratenahl Ohio. No signs from the street, I passed it two times before I called for directions. The service was very good, the food was excellent.

My husband and I came here and loved our food!!! It's a little hard to find and you have to go through a security gate which was confusing. There was a lot of older people dining as the atmosphere was nice, but a little stuffy. The food though was fabulous! ! I had the mac n cheese and it was... More

I came here with my husband for a friend's birthday party. I ordered the duck and he ordereds the steak. The duck was delicious but I've had just as good duck for a lower price. My husband's steak was okay. We have definitely ate better steak at many other places. The steak was bland. Definitely recommend the duck over the... More

Have visited for three years running on New Year's eve, Each meal has been memorable with great wine pairings for a nice price point of $100. This year's started with sashimi tuna nicoise on a cracker crust pizza with sirracha aioli and a glass of Cheurlin champagne. Very nice. Next came a winter caprese salad with roasted grape tomato, buffalo... More

My husband and I spent New Year's Eve at Americano. What a delight! We had the evenings' New Year's Eve dinner menu which included an appetizer, salad, several smaller entrees and dessert. Each course was pared with a different wine or liqueur. This was a taste treat of flavors and textures bar none which we enjoyed from beginning to end!... More

Five of us enjoyed 3 hours of dining on a Tuesday evening. We shared the stuffed dates and pumpkin pierogies for appetizers. The dates (4 for $11) were large and soft on the inside. The pierogies (2) we're served with sour cream and caramelized onions. Both were a nice start, but not the highlight of the meal. Three of us... More

We go to Americano 2-3 times per month. We have never had a bad meal. It is relatively inexpensive and they pour great drinks. The wedge salad with cranberries is one of my favorites. In addition to a full menu they have great pub food, the cheeseburgers are amazing and cooked the way you request. Beautiful views (right on Lake... More

Food is important but so is ambience and I had heard that the decor was a little 60ish and needed updating but I did not find this to be true at all. The look was a liittle "country club classic" but beautifully done. It felt very elegant, and refreshing. A nice change in this town. I expected the menu to... More

We have been to Americano a couple of times. It is a little off the beaten path in that it is in the Bratenahl Place a high rise condo unit on Lake Erie. You must go thru a security gate but just tell the guard you are there for dinner. Atmosphere is good but not great. The room is open... More

Americano is one of the finest restaurants in town--maybe in America! The chef's menu is always a terrific blend of variations and the flavors are so distinct and wonderful. Even a simple filet Mignon that we had last night was served in the most delicious sauce! Americano never disappoints! And the staff is equally agreeable. Last night Maeve served us... More
