I've been eating at br for almost twenty years. I've recommended br to many friends as well as taken many with me for the br eating experience. From the wonderful caesar salad prepared at tableside to the great specials, br is a charming way to dine which seems to take you to another time and another country.The staff is always ready to go the extra mile to make you satisfied.

While the prices are up a bit, some portions (eg chopped salad vs old bistro house) smaller and the menu has changed, our party was pleased with the overall experience. I was also happy to be able to get an old faqvorite (Veal Melonzanne)prepared and it was as terrific as ever.

The mood & atmosphere was romantic. The waitresses were pleasant & very helpful explaining the menu. The seafood dish that I had was extremely fresh. I came from NJ & it was easy to get to & park. I can't wait to go back!

Bistro Romano is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. This visit did not disappoint. Our server was attentive and knowledgable. Additionally, the manager stopped by our table to ensure everything was okay. Although we love the table side Caesar Salad we opted to try the stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. They were absolutely delicious. Our meals were on point.

If I were to write a review I would write about three topics; atmosphere, food, and service. The atmosphere is extremely romantic and calm and is perfect for bringing your loved one for a nice romantic dinner. The food was outstanding both times I have been there and is prepared perfectly. The service has been amazing each time we go there from the tableside made salads to the waiters and waitresses. Our waiter Keith was extremely quick, polite, down to earth, and had amazing recommendations for me and my girlfriend. Amazing restaurant and our favorite,

I went to Bistro Romano on January 30, 2013 for my 27th birthday. This place was amazing to say the least! It was my first time and had the best food ever! Our server Keith, was the best and got everything we asked for! My homemade Tortellini was filled with flavor! I'm drooling just thinking about it! I will be back!

This is my favorite Italian place in Philly. Not only is their food amazing and the atmosphere romantic and special, but also they treat their customers well. Between their weekly specials, daily happy hour and birthday deal, they make it really easy for customers to come back- especially in these hard economic times. Special food shout outs to the veal melanzane and lobster ravioli.

We came here for the first time to celebrate a friend's birthday and had an amazing experience. The service was fantastic and attentive. Our server Keith was extremely helpful and informative, and we loved the tableside caesar salad experience. The food was excellent and came out very quickly despite being a busy saturday night. The dessert was certainly the best part. The staff was able to put a candle in our friend's dessert and she was very pleasantly surprised. To top it all, Bistro Romano has the best creme brulee we've ever had, and we've had a lot. We would definitely come back, especially as a couple because it was super romantic.

With its eighteenth-century historic bones, Bistro Romano is as attractive for its ambience as for its large portions of satisfying steak and veal dishes. The tableside Caesar salad is one of the best in town. Try the homey pastas,…
