From the outside, it looks like your average neighborhood Italian joint, but what goes on inside this dark and intimate 28-seater is quite extraordinary. For one thing, there are no menus. Romeo comes by the table, inquires as to your likes and dislikes, and prepares a personalized menu accordingly. Dinners are composed of six courses, each featuring small portions of freshly and deliciously prepared northern Italian cuisine. A sample meal might include salmon carpaccio, Fontina ravioli with truffles and rosemary, grouper sautéed with wine and herbs, risotto with beef tenderloin, lamb chops in barolo wine sauce, and chocolate soufflé for dessert. It's a steal, and lunch, a three-course feast, goes for an unbelievably low price too. Service is stellar, and the ambiance as romantic as it gets. It's a great place to fall in love, and you will - if not with the person across the table, certainly with Romeo's.
