Bistro Romano certainly delivers on its promise. The menu offers international cuisine with a strong Mediterranean influence. I was eventually reeled in by the seared scallops served with a fresh crab, apple and mayonnaise salad, drizzled with cider vinaigrette, followed by a grilled Ridings Reserve sirloin steak with Greenland prawns, fresh wilted spinach in garlic butter and homemade chips. My husband plumped for beer-battered king prawns with homemade tartare sauce - Romano even revealed that the batter is made with Peroni beer. We also tried the roast supreme of chicken with chorizo sausage, puy lentils and tomatoes. Our portions were plentiful and packed with a delicious combination of flavours and textures.
A scoop of Turkish delight ice cream was the perfect treat for my sweet tooth, while my husband's sticky toffee pudding was swimming in a fabulously gooey sauce - his only quibble was that he wished he'd ordered two. Top marks all round for this restaurant - we'll certainly be back soon.
