Romantica Italian Restaurant – Mere Green Review

Romantica Italian Restaurant is based pretty close to home to me. Situated in Mere Green, Sutton Coldfield. It’s current ranked #2 on TripAdvisor for the area, and this was the first time I’d visited the restaurant, despite hearing positive reviews previously.

We attended the restaurant on warm, sunny Saturday afternoon. It was better weather than usual and this was of a lunchtime so it was a little more quieter than usual. The staff were very welcoming and attentitive when I’d arrived.

Garlic bread with tomato and mozzarella

We had Garlic Bread with tomato and Mozzarella to start. Not only did this look fantastic it tasted immense and packed with a punchy garlic taste but not too overpowering.

(Penne pasta, chicken,
prawn, white wine parsley and cream sauce)

For the Main Course I had Penne al Pollo e Gamberetti (or Penne pasta, with chicken, prawn, white wine parsley and cream sauce)

Despite looking a fairly basic pasta dish this was very creamy with a sweet taste of white wine, that really complimented the chicken and prawns.

I will be definitely visiting here again.

Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce Review

Sweet Baby Jesus…. I mean Ray’s

I would typically review a bottled sauce as a blog. However, this sauce is far from the usual……

I’m not a massive BBQ sauce fan. All my friends eat it and it would be their preferred choice. I’m more of a ketchup man if I’m honest. But only with things like chips and junk food. Sweet Baby Ray’s on the other hand is exactly what it says on the tin! (Or bottle) s.


Here I’ve used the sauce on my Chicken Bacon and Cheese Brioch’s. I dont eat KFC so this is my home made version of it. If you’d like me to share my recipe for this please comment below.

Verdict: It’s by far the tastiest BBQ sauce I’ve ever had. It’s not in all supermarkets but there’s a link below where you can get a couple of bottle
