We are planning a very special dinner party for my Nan's 70th and knowing that all the food talk that comes with planning a menu would make us ravenous we headed out for lunch to discuss it in style. It was another gloriously sunny day on Friday so we chose Romolo the Italian restaurant and cocktail lounge next to the river on Victoria Quay. I've been wanting to try Romolo £5 lunch for a while...
