So far, this is the best restaurant I've been to in Cleveland. It's a ways out of town, but its proximity to Lake Erie more than compensates for the drive. Set in a verdant park rolling down to the lake, and affording a spectacular view of the sun setting over its western rim, the restaurant itself displays a Rockefeller type luxury. The food is highly inventive--especially the main courses--and delicious. I chose pork chops with apple slaw and three sweet potato waffles; my son had the roast duck, and my daughter-in-law, the "mac and cheese" with chicken breast. The portions are Ohio-sized, and you may not be able to finish them (in which case the staff will be happy to box the leftovers for you). Save room for dessert. The crème brulée was the best I've ever had. The tables are spaced a decent distance apart and the noise level is relatively low, so it's possible to enjoy each other's conversation and company. Only a few dead flies on the radiator cover behind our table detracted from an almost perfect experience.
Reservations are definitely needed, as Americano is on the ground floor of one of two condominium towers, and the park is gated; your reservation will be checked when you arrive.
