You'll have a good and fun evening at Romania. Whether at the bar or in the restaurant, the food is good old fashioned Italian comfort... The place is great value and again I commend its staff, all of whom are welcoming and helpful. I had the pizza last night and it was great. Still have some for breakfast... Be assured,... More

The food here was great, but the service here was very poor. It took forever to even get our water glasses refilled. Everyone there seemed to be hustling, but I'm guessing the wait staff has too many tables to give adequate attention. It took the food a long time to reach us, but it was delicious once it arrived. If... More

After wandering around the Queen's Shopping area we decided to eat here. It was quiet when we went in but soon was full and noisy. I had a good King Prawn dish and my partner had Lobster Ravioli which we both enjoyed but full of garlic! The beer was good.

This is a chain italian restaurant with no frills. They should definitely offer a lunch menu. Their menu is dinner only. If you like olive garden type italian then it's fine.

The place had lots of people. Very cold inside. Our lasagna was not fully cooked. The best part of the me el was the mud pie.

We were holding on to these gift cards for many years and we never did get a chance to stop. One day coming back from Hilo we decided that we'll treat the kids to some desserts. This was the best thing we did that day. It was truly a wonderful place for desserts. One day we surly have to go... More

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Busy. Great service. Unimpressive food. The smells are great but I would not bother again. Been twice now, same experience. Great family eatery, lots of kids, loud. Two birthdays celebrated while here. We had a cocktail each and ordered their pizza. Their menu says "artisan pizza." No way. This was $16.95 for cheese &...

After traveling for more than 12 hours.and we just wanted something relatively inexpensive yet reliable. This was the worst. Do not go here. I got my dinner at least ten minutes after everyone else at the table of five of us. Shrimp scampi. Ok. Here's the absolute truth. Five shrimp in a half pound of capellini (actually cooked perfectly) mixed... More

We had dinner here one night during our stay on the big island and it will definitely be the last time we visit this restaurant. The service was poor, the food terrible and an overall uncaring attitude by the wait staff even when we told them that we had issues with the food. We were four adults and two of... More
