two amazing nights: casa tua and Romeo's

I had a very special week last week and two very special celebratory meals. Here's what I remember...
I highly recommend both!

Casa Tua:
The service was outstanding!
I loved the cozy atmosphere - designed to look like you're eating in a family living room, there are family pictures on the walls and soothing blues and whites. Very comfortable and sufficiently romantic (not meant only for dates -there were larger parties).
We had stuffed zucchini flowers, gnocchi, and steak with 25 yr. old balsamic vinegar. All was delicious!

Romeo's:
Who would expect such a 5 star meal from such a random part of town? Romeo's has no menu - the chef simply makes a tasting menu based on what's fresh and appealing to him that day. Of course they tailor the ingredients to any allergies or dislikes.
The atmosphere is meant for romance. The restaurant is small and dimly lit. I saw two tables for two in the back by the bathroom that I would not prefer, and would advise requesting to be seated somewhere else if making reservations.
Service was outstanding - we were welcomed by the owner, plates were left until everybody finished each course and the waiters were very conscientious.
We had salmon carpaccio, rissoto with kangaroo, lamb, (others had duck or steak instead) and taglietelle. It was really superb!
