This was a belated Christmas treat. It started well with tasty garlic bread, prawn cocktail and mushroom soup. The olivers were delicious. Disappointing that's where it stopped. My partner and I both chose the ribeye steak. Although cooked nicely the whole meal was extremely dry. A bit of garlic butter would've made all the difference. The garnish was served separately...

It's the only restaurant that you can get a decent garlic bread. It's always been our favourite. Made with blue cheese. Apsolutley delicious. It just melts in your mouth. My husband had steak Diane with jacket potato and salad. I had spaghetti with tuna & chilli. It's one of our favourite restaurant's. We will be back. Wonderful chef. 😀

TripAdvisor Reviews of La Romantica were promising and proved to be "right on the money". Its location, and the checked tablecloths caused some doubt, but the food and service were faultless. Wonderful seafood starter and superb steaks. Service was... More

In this case they were dead right. I used to frequent this restaurant years ago when I lived in Sheffield and the food was great. I was excited therefore to take my wife and son there on a recent trip to the city. What a disappointment. The food was poor and the restaurant smelled of burnt fat. My son couldn't... More
