Antonio’s Cusina Italiana has a sister restaurant located on Dix Rd. in Dearborn, Roman Village Cafe. If you love Antonio’s, Roman Village is serving all your Italian favorites. I decided to take Josh there for Sweetest Day.
We started off with the garlicy, buttery fresh bread with Alfredo dipping sauce: The bread is amazing and the Alfredo was not salty like Olive Garden’s is.
Tortellini Alla Panna: Cheese filled tortellini prepared with peas and ham in a rich cream sauce. The tortellini was tender and the sauce was a little bland. The ham was good, but it seemed as though it was ripped up pieces of deli ham.
I went with the famous Chicken Antonio (previously featured). Lightly battered chicken breast topped with melted Provolone cheese and white sauce. Delicious! I highly recommend this dish.
The food was good, but Antonio’s seems to be my favorite. I did like that we only waited about 20 min @ 7:30 pm on Saturday and the service was great. We also didn’t really like was that Roman Village Cafe was a little bright. Normally, when we go out to an Italian restaurant, we expect it to be dimly lit, creating a romantic ambiance.
Josh surprised me with some sweets (what a Sweetie)! He just wouldn’t tell me where he got them.
Chocolate Covered Bacon: Sweet meets salty. I thought the bacon would have that bacon-bit fake flavor, but it tasted like the bacon I made for breakfast this past weekend. Very interesting!
(The pieces broke during transportation).
Butterfinger Dipped Pretzel & Chocolate with Cashews: Who doesn’t love a pretzel wrapped candy bar? The salt from the pretzel balances out the sweetness from the chocolate and peanut buttery Butterfinger! The chocolate with cashews was creamy and fresh. It didn’t taste like your average Hershey Bar. You could really taste the quality.
The night was awesome and we have a lot of fun. Thanks Baby for the best Sweetest Day! ❤
