We've been going here by ourselves and with other couples for years and always enjoyed ourselves, but rarely eat anything except salad and mini-pizza during Happy Hour. They have freshly baked bread and a homemade tapenade to die for.In a word, excellent. But last night we had Cioppino, and in a word, Lousy. Bland broth, rubbery, overcooked and/or not-fresh shellfish.... More

My wife, many friends and i, all of whom live in Laguna Beach, have dined at Romeo Cucina more than 20 times in the last 3 years. The food is consistently very good and an outstanding value given the price point. Their lasagne is probably the best i've ever had...with something akin to a vodka sauce making magic with the...

Love their apps., especially the Misto Fresco. Their Caesar salad with chicken is always fresh, and I love the warm polenta cubes they add to it. Had many of their entrées and they all were very good. Service, and drinks are always great. Prices are fair. Great place for large or small parties. Outside dinning, and large indoor full bar.

Being from this part of Italy, I have very high standards in assessing "is this authentic?" The answer is yes! Spoke in our native dialect to several of the principles. What fun. And the food, wow. The panzanella, mushroom risotto and tagliatelle were all excellent. The pasta and rice were al dente and not overcooked as is usual in most... More

We had an unexpected treat when we stopped here for lunch. The food was as fresh and delicious as could be! We had the minestrone soup, chicken salad, bambino pizza with cannoli and coffee for dessert. I am giving Romeo Cucina the highest rating for food, service and ambiance as it was all superb!

We love Romeo Cucina. My husbands family are Italian and we have had many a family celebration and even Christmas Eve at this awesome place. Even the pizza tastes like its from Naples. They have a lo-carb filet mignon that is out of this world and something for everyone. Not cheap but definitely a great value

Have eaten at this restaurant for years prior to attending the Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach. They always have the best and freshest of fresh pasta with unique flavors. Four of us enjoyed a unique set of dishes personally made up by the owner who also served us. What a man -- is he married? We all like... More

Our first time here, had dinner just before Pagent of Masters. Arrived about 5:30 so not busy. The Tortellini de Carne with ribeye stuffed tortellini and creamy pesto sauce was amazing. Topped it off with a nice creme brulee. Good wait service.
