If you are looking for a good Italian place in Amman, then Romero is your answer. Romero has been open for more than a decade and the food has always been consistent and good.

I have read lots of reviews about Romero, and was excited to try it. My wife and I ordered the ribeye, and angus beef. It was the worst food I have ever tasted. The service was horrible. However; it can be a good place for wine only.

Romero is just few steps from intercontinental Jordan hotel. It is an old decorated house. The ambience is good where you listen to french songs. Good italian food. The menu does not have pizza which I expected to find in an Italian restaurant. The tiramissu is delicious and the service is good. Romero is recommended if you are in Amman.

I can only say that the many times I came here have always been great. Excellent food (I love the kibbeh nayyeh) and very good service. The meals for groups are lavish and affordable.

Allow one of the very professional servers to pick your meal and your wine. Tell them what you are in the mood for and relax. I have been going to Romero when I am in Amman for years and it never fails to meet my fondest memories. Enjoy!

Small and versatile menu, I love when restaurants don't try to do too many things, and instead master a few dishes.

Located near many great Hotels and opposite InterContinental, it is famous for its good Italian food. Frequented by diplomats and local big wigs, a reservation is recommended. It is a cozy environment and food is almost always good. I have eaten there many times and always find it as a great place in Amman to meet people and have a... More
