Owner zaid goussous with mrs. Flavia

Our Story

Let us take you on a journey back in time; the year 1921, a young doctor by the name of Fausto Tesio established the Italian Hospital in the heart of the new city near the ancient Roman Amphitheatre. Deeply inspired by her father’s great passion for Jordan, Flavia Romero took her Italian roots and planted them in Amman by opening Romero Restaurant in 1979. Flavia continued to add pieces of her culture to the restaurant, which grew to become a haven for Mediterranean cuisine in Jordan.
In 1988, the legacy created by Romero was handed over to Mr. Zaid Goussous, whose passion and love for fine cuisine continues to drive his inspiration today. Goussous extended Romero’s legacy by growing the menu of homemade Italian recipes to include flavors from each of the country’s provinces. He had successfully maintained a small piece of Italy in the heart of our beloved Amman with its enchanting ambiance and indulging cuisine.
