Wonderful little Spot for great Italian food. The meatball appetizer is a favorite of our kids, but hands down, the eggplant parmesan is the best.

Even though the name has changed from Roman Cucina to Romano Cucina at this location and the Sunset Beach location, the food is still great and so is the Wednesday night "no corkage" and half-price bottles of wine. The name changed because the brothers who own Roman Cucina sold these two locations. They also sold the secret recipes for the... More

This restaurant is only a mile from our home so we go there often. My personal favorites are the cheese lasagna (always with leftovers for another meal or two) and the sliced mushroom appetizer. My husband usually enjoys one of the chicken dishes or the meat lasagna. We have never been disappointed in a meal. And the service is always... More

This is a great place. We went on Father's Day. It was busy but this did not affect the service. The food was excellent. A little noisy but we could converse. The bread was piping hot. The entrees our party ordered were: lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, the halibut special, and shrimp in red sauce. Delivered hot, generous portions. For dessert we... More

This place is real tasty! If your going on a peak night, expect a bit of a wait time because it is no secret that this restaurant has delicious food

We have been eating here since the day after they opened. Favorite Italian restaurant ever. Unfortunately the Romans sold it and moved away, and although the menu is the same and worthy of 4/5 stars, the way it is run and the service is at a 1/2 level. We have largely stopped trying to eat there anymore, mostly will pick... More

Great food at reasonable prices. Skip the big chains and go for the friendly personal service and cozy atmosphere. Perfect for a family dinner, or date night for two. If you go on a weekend, prepare to wait ... it's no secret around here!

A fantastic Italian restaurant located in a strip mall....what a pleasant surprise..the food was outstanding, good authentic Italian food...with generous portions, very reasonable prices, and great service from all the wait people. If you are in the Laguna Hills area I would highly recommend you treat yourself to a great meal here.

New Ownership. Still love the food, however the service is not top notch as it use to be. We have been going there for years. It used to be our favorite place because everyone new our name just like Cheers, not so much anymore. There are still a few of the same people who work worked there that know us.... More

Great Italian Restaurant, serving fantastic food at reasonable prices. Restaurant is in a small strip mall with intimate interior. Wine Wednesdays are a must. Choose 1/2 off on bottles of wine or bring your favorite with you and pay no corkage fee. Just get their when they open the doors at 5 pm or line is out the door. Favorite... More
