This was our second visit. On the plus side, the pasta is homemade, delicious and you have a variety of sauce choices. Some of the food choices are fair. The Caesar salad, unremarkable. The spaghetti and clams, white sauce is on the salty side. I did have one special that was remarkable; wild boar chops. I never had boar before... More

Took our family of five to Red Room for a birthday celebration, serves was pretty good " Bill" was fun and informative. The food was mediocre at best. All pasta dishes had uneven or over cooked pasta, Caesars salads were dry and no fresh pepper offered, one salad was so salty it had to be sent back. Pasta with clams... More

I was very excited to have dinner with my family (8 people) at Red Room on Saturday night. We arrived at 7:30PM, right on time for our reservation. We were told our table wasn't ready yet and to please wait outside. We waited for 50 minutes, standing outside without an update, apology, or even a glass of water. When we... More

We really like this restaurant because it keeps the quality of food and service, plus it accepts reservations and is BYOB (bring your own bottle). Pasta is home made, and products are really fresh.

Really enjoyed the food here. Had eaten here in the past and definitely better than last year Everything from the bread to the pasta was fresh homemade and delicious I had a seafood dish with pasta shrimp and other seafood. My sister had the stuffed chicken. Great food at a reasonable price Bring your own wine

Excellent service, terrific food. As readers probably know all restaurants in Ventnor are BYOB (though, if you forget, there's a liquor store right down the block). We brought a large pitcher of sangria, which added some extra fun to the meal. Highly recommend.

One thing you expect when going to a BYOB restaurant is great service. The wait staff doesn't have to spend time running to the bar all night. Unfortunately, our party did not receive great service. The server was friendly but not particularly attentive to our needs. One must for me is that my water is glass is always full. I... More

About half of our party really liked their dinner and those folks ordered chicken and eggplant Parm. the pasta dishes didn't have a lot of flavor and the pasta itself seemed watery (i know, weird way to describe pasta, but it was). This place is BYO. The entrees aren't cheap but since you don't pay an alcohol markup it ends... More

Happened to go here because we could not get into another restaurant. Got the octopus, artichoke and rice ball appetizers. All were fantastic. The pasta is made fresh and the service is exceptional. The entrees are great. Don't tell anyone about this place because I want to be able to get another reservation.

There were eight dining and six of the dishes were very good. The grilled calamari was came without any kind of sauce or seasoning. It had no taste. The seafood and pasta dish tasted very nice and the pasta was cooked perfectly but the shrimp was rubbery from being so badly overcooked. The mussels and clams were cooked properly. The... More
