Mrs. Ronino's is old-school Italian food in an old-school Italian environment... to me, it's a place you go to relax over a huge plate of comfort food. I think their meatball is the best I've ever had at a restaurant, and my advice would be to order an extra one. Gnocchis were perfectly cooked, huge piece of veal, tour of... More

We had the sausage/meatball appetizer, chopped salad, spaghetti and meatball, porkette with broccoli rabe and mashed potatoes, and the chicken and broccoli alfredo. Spaghetti was ordinary but everything else was very good. The portions are huge so prepare to bring home leftovers. We also had a lovely, attentive waitress

This is my first time at this restaurant. It was recommended by a co-worker. Great homemade Italian food. Went with the family for New Year's Eve. Everyone's meal was fabulous and you won't leave hungry. They also offer take-out. Service was efficient and friendly. The restaurant is in an old house and has multiple dining rooms. the only drawback would... More

Been coming here for I don't know how many years, had lunch here, dinner here, and celebrated a number of birthdays here. I keep telling myself I'm going to try other things on the menu, but I always wind up with their lasagna.... with a meatball on the side. Love their meatballs... if you come in for lunch, treat yourself... More

I found this place in advance. My wife & I walked here our first night, about 1.5 miles. Had veal parm and she had chicken parm. Both were excellent. Reasonably priced too. I took off 1 star because the spaghetti was not al dente. It was overcooked and soggy. So I just ate small amounts to compliment my veal parm.... More

Was in Wilmington for a show and found this gem. The pasta here was some of the best I've ever had outside of Italy or homemade in my own kitchen. I could actually smell the fresh eggs and flour as I was eating it. The portions were huge, especially considering how reasonable the prices were! Try the Tour of Italy... More

Thanks for the feedback! Can you explain Doherty and meatball? What about the service was suspect? I am a bit confused about your comments...Can you please be more specific after giving only a 3 star rating? Thank you for your time! More

On a recent Tuesday evening, my husband, adult son, and I decided to pay a visit to Mrs. Robino's for dinner. After 50 plus years of going there for dinners, we knew we could always depend on good service and great food. What a disappointment! I can't remember when we have every had such a terrible waitperson, at any establishment.... More

I want to apologize for service that you experienced at Mrs. Robino's. This is not the way our staff is supposed to treat our customers. We pride ourselves in the satisfaction of our customers and this is not acceptable. I will review our practices and procedures with our servers so this does not happen in the future. Thank you for...
