I am a huge fan of Glass HostariaSalumeria Roscioli and Il Forno Roscioli. When I heard that they were combining forces to create a new venture, I couldn’t wait to experience it. Cristina Bowerman, Fabio Spada and the Roscioli brothers, Pierluigi and Alessandro are the chefs & bakers behind Romeo.

Pulling on their collective strengths, Romeo offers thin crust Roman pizza, cheese, cured meats and a complete menu. Since it’s opening last week, I’ve visited for lunch and dinner. Here is what I’ve sampled so far.

I enjoyed the texture-flavor combinations including sharp cheese, sweet fillet and smokey vegetables served on crusty bread  and velvety beef with crumbled polenta and slightly bitter chicory. The star dish was the ravioli bursting with creamy castelmagno topped with earthy pumpkin foam and crunchy hazelnuts. Not only did I savor the food but the service was fantastic, friendly and helpful. I look forward to visiting again very soon.
