Although all the waitresses were very polite, the service was slow. The food took a while, and had to ask for water and bread more than once. I think the staff was just overwhelmed since we went for Valentine's day and the place was packed. The food was worth every penny though, it was delicious! I would go back, just not on a holiday.

Valentines Day. Server spilled appetizer plate all over table cloth. Remained wet for duration of meal. Took over an hour to get dinner. Had to ask 3 different people to check on food. Finally came and one entree was barely warm. Had to send it back. Romantic meal ruined. Left in a very nasty mood

My husband and I were in town for just one night and were looking for a good, no-hassle dinner after traveling all day. We were able to make a last minute reservation at Romola's which we chose because of the Open Table reviews. The food was excellent. We were surprised that the restaurant had no liquor license but were able to walk next door to the liquor store for a bottle of wine. We will definitely return when we visit Cranford in the future.

I was really excited to try this restaurant based on reviews. The service was great, really attentive. The food was hit or miss. The special branzino was well prepared, but the red snapper livornese was disappointing. The fish was overcooked and the sauce wasn’t as rich or tasty as It should have been.
Maybe it was an off night but for the prices they charge the food should be perfect.

Very nice restaurant, romantic and nice lighting. It's BYOB but the bill was still high. Food was average--fra diablo at $30 was not that spicey, and chicken dish was plain and covered with arugula so you could not see what was underneath. Service was very good so no complaints there! Desserts were very good especially the break pudding. I would return for dessert and bring a nice port or bottle of wine since the atmosphere is very nice.

It was New Years Eve and we had a 6:30 reservation, arriving at 6:15. We weren't seated in the main restaurant, but rather in the room behind the hostess station. For the first half hour we were the only table there. So far no complaints. Knowing it was New Years Eve I was ready to allow for inconsistencies. Wine opened, specials read, and our orders taken. In no time at all we had our appetizers and right after those plates were cleared the entrees arrived. I looked at the time and only half an hour had passed. We would be out of the restaurant in an hour at that rate. I understand turnover on a busy night is important but I think an hour and a half should be allowed. After the entree we ordered dessert and for some reason that took forever. Strange. Other than the odd pacing of the meal our only complaint was gnats. There were two gnats flying around our table during the meal. We managed to kill one and soon after the second appeared. We have dined here many times before and will return again knowing on a normal night the pacing is a lot better.

Christmas eve was my 1st visit and def not my last. My elderly father and brother had a perfect evening. It was exactly what I wanted. It was special. I loved that there was a real taper candle on every table. It was the ideal atmosphere.

My wife and I went out for a special dinner just before Christmas as we usually do and chose Romola's this time. We have dined here before and were always pleased with the food and the staff. I highly recommend this establishment for a special meal.
