Nothing says romance like a romantic Italian meal for two.

This restaurant is the right place if you and your date have a good appetite and want something refined.
First-time visitors must try the carpaccio, a classic dish with a twist from the chef. This delectable appetizer is made with prime tenderloin that’s sliced paper thin and topped with baby organic arugula, sea salt, freshly ground pepper, shaved pecorino Romano cheese, and drizzled with a grapefruit extra virgin olive oil vinaigrette.
Main courses include surf and turf dishes. Enjoy the osso buco, a classic Italian dish of veal braised to perfection and served with mashed potatoes, braised vegetables, and topped with a micro green gremolata. Try chef Salerno’s famous brandy cream sauce, which is featured in either the chef’s peppered prime strip or the prime tenderloin medallions, both of which are made from Texas beef and served over Yukon mashed potatoes and vegetables.
End the date on a sweet note with one of Bistecca’s desserts, such as orange crepes, crème brulee, or a marvelous chef’s specialty called chocolate Frangelico souffle that’s served with espresso cream.
Bistecca has an extensive wine list offering whites, reds, port and special wines from the cellar.
