A Taste of Italy Right Here in The Dalles

This week’s blog idea comes from one of Celilo Inn’s Twitter followers. When we tweeted requests for blog ideas, we couldn’t get this suggestion out of our head. One of the things The Dalles is known for is our outstanding restaurants and gourmet cuisine, so we couldn’t pass up the chance to let our readers know about Romul’s Italian Restaurant.

 

Often times our guests happen to be couples on their anniversary or honeymoon, and what better way to celebrate than going out to dinner at a great restaurant. With its delicious food and romantic décor, Romul’s is a definite must for couples coming to the Gorge.

 

One of the great things about Romul’s is the extensive menu of authentic Italian cuisine. From mouth-watering seafood dishes, to the traditional and scrumptious pastas, to the crisp and delicious soups and salads, you will undoubtedly find the dish to satiate your cravings. But what’s an authentic Italian meal without a glass of wine!

 

Romul’s wine list is one of the biggest in The Dalles. The staff will be happy to help you find the perfect wine to accompany your meal. However, if you aren’t in the mood for wine, you will also find a variety of other beverages to choose from including a full bar.

 

To top it all off, the décor of the restaurant harkens to the Renaissance and authentic Italian restaurants.

For more information on restaurants in The Dalles, be sure to speak to our friendly staff when staying at Celilo Inn.

A Very Celilo Christmas

The month was December, and here inThe Dalles,

Holiday music was playing with the twinkling of bells.

Delicious Celilo Inn wines were being poured,

Complimentary tastings, now that we can afford!

The Mt. Hood Polar Express chugged on through,

The Columbia River Gorge, choo choo!

Celilo Inn’s Snuggle Up package was a guest favorite.

Bears, blankets and cozy rooms put them in the Holiday spirit.

Curled up next to a loved one with a cup of hot chocolate,

When it comes to this package guests can’t help but love all of it.

The Holidays are a time to be comfy and cozy,

Especially since The Dalles is a little bit snowy.

The Holidays can often be a very stressful time,

So the Celilo Inn Spa Package is a very good sign.

Once the stockings were hung and the tree was trimmed,

Nothing sounded better than a massage for her and him.

Guests relaxed in their room with a glass of wine,

Who says the Holidays aren’t a time to unwind?

With snow on the ground, and a chill in the air,

The Dallesis so beautiful, people can’t help but stare!

Happy Holidays to you and your family this year,

And may the sounds of the season bring joy to your ears!
