Upon arrival we were asked to wait to the side while our table was prepared; “a few seconds”. After 15 minutes I asked how much longer it would be and was told the by the Host, that the manager instructed him to “hold the door” and it would be another 5 minutes. Indeed, after 5 minutes we were seated. Our server was energetic and mostly attentive. The food was standard fare for a chain Italian place.

The bruschetta did not have a good flavor. The Alfredo pasta was dry and without flavor.

When I arrived, there were only a few cars in the parking lot on a Friday evening. That should have been my first warning... Service was poor and not just from my server. Of the few people who were dining, you could notice that the lack of service was present throughout the restaurant. My pasta was not fully cooked, there was something floating in my drink, and our salad arrived after the main course was served. To top it off, the ceiling boards were falling down and resting on a beam. I would not return to this location.

Service was slow and the food took a long time to come out. Small things like drink refills and bringing another plate for people sharing a meal should be easy to remember.
The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was nice.

Not many customers do extremely quiet - all was fine but food was not superb

Would really like the mushroom soup to return - menu regular or at least as a special

Taylor was the best server hands down I have ever encountered. I am not only saying this because I'm part of the Brunner family. But he was beyond amazing. Made me and my party of 7 family feel so welcomed. I wish there were more servers like us in the world. Keep up the good work!!

Our visit was three days after the reopening of restaurants in Florida. There were only three other couples seated during our dinner. Food is what we hoped for as we don't have a Romano's within 125 miles of our home. The server was very attentive too. Even with few customers he could have been less attentive without our noticing it. We enjoyed the quiet time.

I went for Valentine's Day with my Girlfriend & 3yr old Son. I had a reservation and they put me and my family into a booth witch was comfortable. The next big thing that I was worried about was the quality of the food, and I have to say I really liked the food. Thank you for helping me have a good experience on Valentine's Day with my family 🙏
