I had a special request to change the type of sauce on a pasta dish they offered and they were so accommodating. Dinner portions are hefty and the price is reasonable when you take that into consideration. We did carry out and it took 20 minutes for our food to be ready. Staff is extremely nice. They even threw in... More

Friends were looking for an inexpensive place to have pizza - we ended up at this quiet Italian restaurant with good service. Wait staff was very attentive , food was fairly good. Nothing extravagant but tasty. We ended up forgoing the pizza for some of their Italian dishes such as Chicken Marsala and seafood linguine. Great value for the large... More

We visited here based on previous reviews- had mozzarella sticks, cheese pizza, spaghetti- nothing fancy because we have 3 kids! Very good all around. Good courteous service. There was a selection of wines for purchase by bottle. Worth the visit!

It doesn't matter where you are coming from you need to make it here. The bread and salad are good but the main dishes were fantastic. We had the baked ziti and the shrimp scampi. The prices range from 9.50 to 17.00 but are very generous portions. My wife reported that her scampi was the best she had in a... More

We were told that this is the best place in town to get Italian. That advice was correct. The food and the service were great. Not far from the resort.

Very good italian food (I had Mussels Napoli and my wife had Chicken Marsella) that were both quite tasty. Attentive service but not overbearing. Good garlic bread and caesar salad. Little pricy for the area but not too bad. Overall a great meal at a good price.

It is much too bright, they should dim the lights for ambience. We were celebrating a birthday and asked for a bottle of Frei Brothers Chardonnay. Our waitress opened a bottle of Frei Brothers red and then gave us grief. We don't drink reds because of headaches so we know that we did not order a red! Such a bad... More

Four of us went to Romano's for dinner, and it was just fantastic! We each has something different, and each of us were so pleased with what we got. The food was homemade, cooked beautifully, and tasted superb. We had a really lovely, helpful waitress too! The place was full from the time we arrived until we left! So it... More

This is a small restaurant near Massanutten Resort. It was clean and pretty on the inside. Food was hot and it was good. Prices were reasonable, $10-$18. Waitress was friendly and attentive. I hear that their pizza is good too.

Thank Connie D
