We went for a 3 courses menu early bird. The quality of food was average, the pastas were a bit too "oily" and it is the first time I am not stuffed after eating a 12" pizza. At the end waitress brought us the bill and told us that payment was to be made at the till. We were still... More

Am so happy to recommend this charming restaurant I visited last Thursday night - great for a chat & catch up with pizza and a glass of wine. The food is very good and the prices very reasonable. Definitely it would be hard to beat this gem !

Yes they could facilitate a family of 8. And Yes we a really... More

We went to Romanos for our Office Christmas Night. We had heard the food was really good and we just wanted somewhere uncomplicated, easy and friendly to begin our night. The food definitely didn't disappoint. There were 8 of us in total and we basically licked the plates clean! We weren't necessarily going for the early bird, but I think... More

Te food was good and the price was good too. A litte weird was the extra price of 12,5%! that came when you where with 4 or more persons.

Romanos never disappoint. It's not fancy, but the food is great and at a great price. They have an early bird / value menu until 730pm which is great value if you're hungry.

I've dropped by Romanos a fair few times now and I've nearly everything on the menu! The pasta is just amazing and the pizza doesn't disapoint either. Top marks for value for money as well.

I've been to Romano's on Capel Street three or four times. Its a great spot for lunch or for an early bird evening dinner. Fresh pasta, good bread, decent wine. Three courses for €25 plus tea/coffee is really good value. the menu isn't huge, but there's enough going on to satisfy most people. Its a great little cafe, one I... More

We dropped in hereby by chance at lunchtime, choosing it because it was packed - but with one spare table. Everything about the lunch was perfect - breads, pastas, wine and friendly service. And a very decent price for quality food. Highly recommended.
