Romanza Rises

After Palmetto Bay’s Trattoria Romanza abruptly closed on April 27, 2017, I and so many others actually found ourselves craving the delicious cuisine Fernando Cortez and his wife Ana Maria served up nightly.


Rejoice, and imagine the joy I felt when I heard that Romanza was back. Yes, you’ll travel a bit further to get your favorite dish, but it’s well worth it. I jumped in my car for the first weekend and I wasn’t disappointed.


It’s the same great menu (and pricing) with the same great staff that we’ve come to know and love. The only thing missing at the time of opening was a liquor license, which should be coming any day now.

It was fun and relaxing to know that this great eatery was back. I shared dinner with some old friends and we remarked how comforting it all was.


Owner and chef Fernando Cortez confided in me, “We have a relentless focus on our food. Despite quickly rising costs, we refuse to compromise or cut corners. You get the same quality and portion size we’ve always served. Our primary job is to always deliver great food at value prices.”
