Visited today for lunch after a friend's recommendation and I was really impressed! The restaurant itself is small but has more of an authentic Italian atmosphere and the service was friendly and efficient. Most importantly the food!!! We ordered two of the chicken dishes and they were superb, the meat was well cooked and sauces were both really tasty. We... More

This restaurant is tucked away in the back streets near the train station. It is very unassuming and decor appears tired. However, the food is traditional and homemade. Portions are generous and prices are reasonable. Worth going when it is quiet but on a busy Saturday evening there is a great atmosphere there.

I have been told how lovely it is here so decided to give it a try... The actual restaurant is rather tired, it could do with a bit of tlc. It's like traditional Italian from the 1970s. It was clean but a refurbishment is due. The staters were nice but I'd say slightly over priced for what you got... We... More

Excellent, tasty Italian food in an authentic setting. Unfortunately, the place seems to be a victim of its own success, the tables are packed in and with so many people in such a small space it can be very noisy. The kitchen also appeared to be very small and therefore when busy can struggle with the volume of orders. The... More

I was really excited about coming to casa Romano as i had heard good things. People warmed me that the salads were bad so i didn't order this(looks just like iceberg lettuce with tomatoes). Unfortunately we had the small table right at the kitchen and bathroom doors so people were constantly walking by. What made it worse was that the... More

A very comprehensive Italian Menu with special fish dishes on the blackboard. The scollops in tomato sauce on spinach are to die for and all their fish dishes are excellent served with french fries and a simple Italian salad. The staff are attentive and polite with the manager owner front of house

Decent food - home cooking Italian style. For me was let down by the space and service. The tables are packed right next to each other, in fact so close that I had to stand up to let the people on the next table sit down. I don't want to eat in solitary splendour, but being quite so jammed in... More
