Authentic Italian brick oven pizza is unique to this restaurant. Traditional italian dishes can be found here without any problem. The menus including salad, pasta, seafood, veggie... Causal Italian dinning without breaking your wallet.

This was my fifth time and it keeps getting better! A table for four and three different entrees... salmon, chicken and lamb and everything was tastefully presented. Everyone raved about what they were eating, I had the braised lamb shank which literally melted in my mouth, it's normally accompanied with risotto and rapini ( not a favourite of rapini )... More

although we found the food to be excellent we were somewhat put off by the unkept appearance of the waitresses .Brittany for one kept walking around the restaurant running her hands through her hair. other wore clothing more suited for the gym even then they could use a cleaning. This could be said about all but one waitress who came... More

We have traveled to Italy several times and the food at Romano's was just as if we were dining in Italy. We had fettucini alfredo and spaghetti Puttanesca. This was the first time I had eaten spaghetti Puttanesca and I plan to order this entrée whereever I can find it. This is a meal for someone who loves spicy Italian... More

Hats off to Executive Chef Jordan and his team. This place just blows me away with its explosive flavours. The seafood risotto was c'est magnifique!! With its open kitchen style ambiance is perfect. Everything about this Ristorante makes me feel great. Every dish that was made was aromatic ! They take pleasure in making sure every dish is perfect. Not... More

We have gone to Romano's for years. We always enjoyed the Chicken Parmesan with their light tomato sauce. Went there last night for our 45th wedding anniversary and were very disappointed in the meal. The service was great, salads were fine but the Parmesan was terrible. The sauce was much stronger, the Parmesan was over cooked with some burnt breading... More

When my family wants to eat out this is the place we go .Food is very good and the quality is consistent. Service is great too !. Its a little jewel in an unassuming strip mall, however my extended family and I have all our special functions in the room off to the side - makes for great private parties... More

The atmosphere is pleasant, not fancy. I would not consider this restaurant as fine dining. The food was good and the prices reasonable. Our server was also good. I would definitely go back, but it would not be my first choice when compared to other Italian restaurants in the area. There are a few simple things they could do to... More

Went here with 2 friends as recommended by my sister. I only stepped foot in this place some 20 years ago when it was a different restaurant and was not impressed, so I was hugely surprised on this visit. The atmosphere is sophisticated but in a casual way, so you feel comfortable for a relaxed dinner or a special occasion.... More
