Robert De Niro was treated to dinner and a show, and the big reveal got very personal for him … which is why he whipped out his phone to capture the moment.

De Niro was the main attraction at a special event Monday night in Halifax, UK. While Bobby D was eating at a restaurant called Ricci’s Place … speed artist Dave Sharp performed a dance and paint number that paid tribute to one of the actor’s most famous movie roles.

The attendees all seemed pretty wowed by Sharp’s artistry — he first painted a taxicab, but once he added the finishing touches, it revealed a colorful painting of good ol’ Travis Bickle from “Taxi Driver” … including his menacing mohawk and sunglasses.

De Niro looked the most pleased with the painting … and, along with getting some video of the homage to his iconic character … we’re told he signed it as well.
