This is one of my favourite places in Philly. I simply love Italian, and I simply love Bistro Romano. They serve some great food, and it's cheap for my pocket tooo

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 have been to the Bistro for my birthday and also for some of my friends special occasions. I always have a wonderful time and the atmosphere is not stuffy. Yet sometimes my decisions in food orders have been excellent to just satisfactory. I am not sure if it is just my tastebuds that peticular evening or not. Nevertheless it has always been a night to remember.


The food and entertainment for me? Perfect 10!!! Keep up the good food and good service. The night we dined there, it was so memorable.




As we showed up an hour late for our reservation and with two extra guests, the staff was accommodating and friendly. The food was fresh and delicious, especially the crab-filled ravioli. Portion size was right on and the price was reasonable for the quality of food.


Bistro Romano is amazing. It is the best place to go to eat before or after visiting the Walnut Street Theater. Great show, the amazing dinner. I brought two friends who had never been to Bistro Romano before and they loved the food. Our server Keith was wonderful. We had a fantastic time as always.


To put it simply - wonderful! Enjoyed the new menu selections, my pork chop special was excellent, my daughter's veal was so tender it melted in her mouth. Wonderful dinner!




Great dining experience, food was delicious, service was excellent, and the restaurant ambience is fantastic.




Attentive service, appreciated recommendations, very good food, and romantic atmosphere. Perfect ten for you, guys!


Keith was our server and I would (if I could) appoint him to our home waitstaff. He was simply marvelous! Keith is well informed on foods, flavors and tastebuds. He was simply entertaining when he made the Caesars Salad tableside and offered tips for doing so at home. Keith is at the top of his game.




This was my first experience and I enjoyed myself immensely. I was a little chilly and they turned off the fans. The food and beverage were also great!




Excellent in all aspects! Service was extraordinary! Wine excellent at happy hour along with scrumptious mussels! Would recommend the ravioli.

It was amazing! We reserved the wine cellar room and our server, Keith was very attentive and knowledgeable The food was excellent. We will definitely return as well as recommend Bistro Romano to friends


The atmosphere, wait staff and food was excellent. It was our first time there and the experience was excellent. I can't wait to come back for our 2nd visit. Thank you again for such a great experience.




Love it food and service was great! Great place, good food, and excellent service! It's always been good to be at Bistro!



Knowledgeable server

The server was very helpful in wine and dinner suggestions, without being pushy. I dined with my son and daughter-in-law and I will definitely bring my other children and their spouses when they are visiting.
