We have eaten at the restaurant, have ordered takeout for delivery and also for pick up. The service is always good as is the food. We have had pizza, calzones, salads, and cheese steaks. All have tasted good and we have ordered them again.

Our waitress was excellent. She was able to answer questions about the menu and questions about the area. She was friendly, courteous and professional. Our food was good. We enjoyed it. The fresh bread was outrageous!

Ordered by phone from rented condo while at Massanutten. Meals come with salad and bread. Huge portions. $10-$15 range. Promised delivery was 45 minutes, food arrived piping hot in 35. Veal was very tender.

We were staying at the nearby Massanutten Resort, saw Romano's on TripAdvisor, and decided to try it for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was pleasant, the food was good and with good-sized portions. I recommend Romano's if you are in the area.
