As always, perfect food and service. Eating outdoors has never been my choice. We ate outdoors and really had an amazing time. The waiters at Romeo’s definitely do an outstanding job. Thank you!!!!!

Sunday lunch with friends. Food delicious as always. My risotto with short ribs was very tasty. Took some home.
Lovely neighborhood restaurant. Hope it survives Covid.

This is my first time writing a review, which goes to show how much of an extremely bad experience this was. My date and I reserved a table for 8:00 pm, but had to wait until 8:33 pm to be seated (what is the point of making a reservation ahead of time for Valentine’s???) While we were waiting (Asian couple here), they seated the white and Latino couples first, who came after us! Then, when we were finally seated, they did not even serve us bread that is customarily served to all the other guests. We requested for it four times to our waiter and we still did not get it. Our main course (filet mignon) had strands of hair in it. Disgusting! We showed it to our waiter, who replaced our dish with some thing else because they ran out of filet mignon, but it was way too salty to eat. They said they cannot serve dishes from the usual menu. So, we were forced to accept the Valentine’s Day menu, which would have been fine except that they ran out of the food listed that they promised as part of the set menu. They ran out of the main course as well as the dessert, but still made us pay the full price for the set menu that was missing several pieces ($200 for 2 people in total). We could have enjoyed a way better meal and experience at a Michelin restaurant for $200. This was the worst culinary experience of our entire life. We still tipped well. Also, we wasted a total of 3 hours for a four course meal that was tasteless, had hair, expensive, took way too long for the quality we were served and extremely poor service. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Also, the set menu ONLY has ravioli and no other pasta option!!! How is this an Italian restaurant when it does not serve pasta ????

Waited over an hour for the main coarse after ordering. No one came to see if we needed anything during that time. Food was not worth the price. Disappointed.

Mango margarita was perfect. Service was a bit slow, even though there was only one other table of customers. Food was very good. We had Cesar salad with grilled chicken, fetuccini Alfredo with chicken. Would recommend if you have an.extended lunch.

First the waiters were very good and attentive. We found the ambiance too dark and a bit cold but otherwise it was pleasant. The food was awful. The capellini with seafood barely had very tiny pieces of seafood and tasteless sauce. My capellini with pancetta etc had practically no sauce. When we complained they took our plates and added the sauce or should have had in the same place. The other two people with us found the chicken tough and did not enjoy the tomato sauce. However in General the food m was not good. I have to say that to make up for it they gave us desserts hutch were good. But for an Italian restaurants with not low prices we thought the food was quite bad. Sorry.

I think we were there on a bad night. They didn't get the reservation right. Service was not good. Pork chop was tiny. Lasagna was not good...drowned underneath way too much sauce. Forgot a side dish among other things. The list is quite long. It's fine for a local restaurant. There aren't too many Italian restaurants near this one. I'm sure we also went on an off night (Sunday night). But we don't live in the neighborhood so won't be back.

I went to this restaurant with my parents for a late Valentine’s Day treat from me. It’s a small restaurant but very well decorated and intimately classy. At first the service was outstanding but we were later forgotten frequently. Coffee and tea was late and communication between the waiters was poor. Overall the restaurant was very pleasant and I would go back for other occasions.

From the Apple salad and octopus with sautéed garlic appetizers to our rack of lamb entree to the Panna Cotta and strawberry dipped in dark chocolate dessert we were very pleased. The rack of lamb was cooked perfectly and the mustard sauce was delicious. The ambience is elegant and the service was highly professional and warm. Overall, it’s a worthy dining experience.

Romeo's is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Cloth tablecloths, fresh flowers and a nice menu selection make this a good date night venue. The wait staff was friendly but did not hover. A surprise limoncello delivered to our table gratis was a nice touch. I will go back.

I enjoyed the food and ambiance very much at Romeo's. The service was a bit slow at the start but I think that was their way to allow patrons to settle in with complimentary bread, cheese and a small appetizer to share. Service was efficient after we ordered our courses. I welcome Romeo's to the neighborhood and highly recommend it.

Bday celeb. Food was delicious and service was good. Although my guest's fettuccine alfredo was on the bland side which tends to be.
The cold and hot antipasto was perfect.

The greeting was not welcoming. The staff were too few and overwhelmed. Service was poor. Although the decor is very attractive, the acoustics are terrible, very noisy. The food was good. It has potential if the owners can work out the kinks—maybe hire more staff and work on the staffs interaction with the customers. They need to acquire some sound proofing and hire a welcoming host or hostess.

I really wanted to enjoy this new restaurant and entered with a good attitude. The ambiance is very nice and they did a good job with the space plan.

The order I placed was a Rib Eye Steak and Rosemary fries, what I got was a gristly and almost inedible skirt steak and greasy frozen diner fries with no herbs or flavor.
I was charged 32 dollars for a dinner that I basically didn't eat.
Very disappointing.

Comfortable setting-great bar/no sides included. Not typical crusty Italian bread. Have to give it time to work out “kinks”. Service could be better and more friendly. Good for neighborhood, but has to improve!! Very well decorated, but a bit expensive! No extras included!

Nothing special. Had veal Milanese. Veal was good, but instead of side vegetables, they placed a small salad over the veal. Was seated in a crowded space next to the door which was uncomfortable. A bit overpriced.
