“Where Italians Go for Italian” is the theme behind Hosteria Romana, an authentic Roman-style restaurant on Espanola Way. The all-Italian staff sings, dances, beats on the drum by the door, and exudes enthusiastic support for every dish on the menu. The extensive menu is based in Roman home cooking, including handmade pastas, pizzas from the wood-burning oven, grilled meats and fish, and of course homemade desserts such as the irresistible tiramisu.
The indoor portion of the restaurant has wooden walls lined with wine bottles, and wine bottles hanging from the ceiling. The outdoor section is intimate and always packed, and Italian guitarists mingle amongst the tables singing romantic songs to the many patrons. The extremely friendly staff bustles about the crowd, happy to pull out chairs and lay napkins in the laps of the women, of course while exuding the Italian charm that makes all the women customers feel as if they are the most beautiful in the restaurant. The authentic Italian charm is part of what keeps Hosteria Romana a packed house, night after night.
