We went here quite often when they first opened. Lunch was great and it was a great place to go with friends in a peaceful environment where you could hearselves talk. Three years ago I gave a birthday party for my husband here. Food got mixed reviews. My grandson got mussels that hadn't been cleaned properly and were full of... More

We have been here for dinner a few times and for two events and everything was excellent. The waitresses & waiters were very attentive. Their input and recommendations for dinner were on point. The owner was very hospitable and helpful when planning an event. Everything went as planned. I would definitely use this place again.

Service has horrible, Food took forever to get there 55 minutes - The Owner was obnoxious and more concerned with schmoozing with the customers instead of watching his kitchen and wait staff. Went there a total of three times hoping the experience would get better because I was hoping to have a quality restaurant right in my backyard. Each experience... More

Based upon the quality of the food (exceptional food and desserts...now our go-to Italian Restaurant), the value (I would be willing to pay more for the same quality), atmosphere (clean, organized, nice lighting/color), comfort (great booths and plenty of them along with nice seating...expensive looking), perfect background music (Bing, Frank, etc), and staff (very professional, polite and helpful), this restaurant...

I think that this is one of THE worse restaurants and food that I ever had. I ordered the meat lasagna. I was the only one in the restaurant and it took forever. I finally got the meat lasagna but I have never had meat lasagna with carrots, potatoes and other vegetables. This alone did not make the worse lasagna... More

Very good Italian food but extremely slow service. Restaurant was not crowded but it took almost 45 mins. from the time we ordered until the main dish arrived. Very good sized menu and reasonable prices.

We went late one evening during the week, the place wasn't busy but I couldn't understand why not. Calm atmosphere and fair prices with generous portions, good service. Had calamari appetizer, and chicken and asparagus with cream sauce over angel hair special for dinner, that was very tasty. I would go back. Iccara's seems to get all the business in... More

It is New Years Eve 2014 and I just came home from the worst experience you could have at Villa Romanza. They advertised a buffet, open bar, and live music for $75.00 a person tax & gratuity included. Before making a reservation my wife called and spoke to the owner, Bill, and clarified what would be served as well as... More
