Romeo & Juliet's Bakery on Hertel Ave-Italian done right.

Romeo & Juliet's Bakery and Cafe
Romeo & Juliet's on Hertel has that classic Italian mom and pop restaurant aura that you only experience occasionally.

The service here is friendly and prompt.  Our favorite waiter, Bob, has a great sense of humor and is extra cute when he speaks Italian!

You can dine in the bakery area (where you can eye your dessert choices) or on the restaurant side inside or on the sidewalk cafe area.

The Insalata de Juliet is a delightful mix of spinach and green leaf lettuce, cucumber, marinated artichokes, pine nuts, grated Parmesan and sesame seeds tossed in a sesame oil dressing.

The "small" Margherita pizza with basil on top is on a thin crispy crust with just the right amount of cheese and sauce.  It definitely is enough for two people.

Dave's, my favorite man person, favorite drink here is the Italian strawberry soda seen here on Romeo & Juliet's iconic place-mat.  It is a light and sweet refreshing carbonated Italian soda--I don't order it because I fear that it could be addictive.

We moved over to the bakery side for a chocolate chip cannoli after our salad and pizza for $2.50. Their cannolis are crisp and light with a creamy filling that is the right balance of sweet and cheesey-goodness.
