We had the vegetable ravioli, the mushroom risotto, and a superb veal dish. All were good to excellent. The food was superb. The wait staff was helpful and attentive. I definitely recommend Romuls (Italian) Restaurant in Hood River Oregon.

Romul's is nicely decorated in an Italian décor; although a little bit too much. It could benefit by getting rid of some, specially the knick-knack items. Service was friendly and efficient. The background music was delightful (if you like Bocelli and Josh Groban; we do). Everything was great as we started with red wine and the delicious warm bread. However,... More

Friendly, attentive staff, including owner who seems to greet every visitor upon arrival. Decor is what I imagine a restaurant in Italy or Greece might look like. Nice reasonably priced wine list.

Service was good, atmosphere acceptable but the food was very average. There are better options in Hood River.

We had a very enjoyable dinner at this restaurant in the heart of Hood River. The owner is an engaging man who loves his business and it shows. The food was great -- we had pasta dishes -- the dining room was attractive with great background music. We would have given this 5 stars if the service had been a... More

The atmosphere is romantic. Traveling by myself, I felt a bit weird overhearing the totally boring conversation of the couple seated adjacent to me. I had a great dinner though. The Pasta Primavera was Delightful, not too heavy of a meal, just the perfect amount. The fresh penne pasta and vegees were cooked perfectly. This was authentic Italian and I... More

Food was somewhat bland. Pasta was cooked well. Staff was friendly and accommodating. A bit overdecorated and too much Bocelli playing in the background

Food is sub par...tasted like noodles and sauce out of a box. Romul is a warm and welcoming host, it's a shame there is not more creativity and quality to the food.

Wonderful Italian food ! It was difficult to choose off the menu-so may great choices. The lasagna was fabulous as was the risotto and eggplant Parmesan. Tiramisu was the best ever...... Also the decor of restaurant was very authentic. We had a great experience and will definitely return.
