We had had a number of recommendations about Romano's and the comment that Viarregio had become a foodie place. We visited Romano's on the Second night of a short stay in Viarregio. It surpassed what we were expecting. Pleasant surroundings. Attentive service without being intrusive. The menu was provided in Italian with separate English text. Everything sounded gorgeous. We ate early so didn't have the benefit of seeing in advance what others were having. It didn't matter. Everything was excellent. We both decided on a pasta dish to start. Ravioli with turbot presented like little buttons. Tagliiolini with a variety of crustaceans. Both were delicious. Main courses were sea bass and lobster and jumbo shrimps. Gorgeous. Deserts were a local desert from Viarregio which was lighter than we could believe. The sorbets were refreshing and each was served separately!!! What to do? Eat them one at a time or a bit of each?
We expected the meal to be expensive but it was less than anticipated and there were a number of nice touches. For the amuse bouche we received one of the antipasti on the menu. This was complimentary as were the petit fours. The wine list was extensive as was the price range. We had a very well priced Pieropan La Rocca for about half the price at home!! The meal was preceded by a complimentary glass of cava and ended with a complimentary glass of Asti Moscato with the desert.
Overall a really enjoyable night. Very interesting to watch regulars discuss with the team various items on the menu. We plan to try other restaurants in Viarregio but I would be happy to work my way through Romano's menu over a number of visits.

We went on a Thursday night in late September, and the restaurant was not crowded at all. Dining room is very modern looking. We enjoyed a bottle of Vernaccia, zucchini flowers, pasta, and fish. Everything was delicious . Service was first rate.

Very good restaurant.. I got to visit the restaurant for my birthday dinner. The seafood was excellent. I love the squid ink pasta and the zucchini flower stuffed with little shrimps was delicious, good presentation, food was good and very good wine. It's a busy restaurant I will recommended reservations. Service was good and fast.
