We stopped here on our way home from our Thanksgiving getaway. Saturday morning breakfast. Did not expect specials for breakfast or lunch!Menu looked great. Welcomed warmly by our server Ben who made sure everything was perfect. Hard to believe this place is 9 years old. Everything looks brand new...Sparkley clean! I ordered an omelet with shrimp/spinach, just amazing! Fluffy, perfect..never... More

Thank you for your gracious review. I am pleased that Ben did a great job he is a very good employee. Actually I am very lucky I have many great employees at both Romanelli's locations.

The restaurant was very accommodating for food allergies. Our waiter was awesome and patient with us as we navigated their long and slightly confusing menu. The food was good. Of note, it looks fancier outside than it is inside. I at first was a bit concerned walking in with sneakers but was very comfortable in my casual attire in the... More

We went on vacation to South Jersey off season and were pleasantly surprised by our dinners here. The food was delicious, there was too much to eat, so we always had leftovers for lunch the next day and the waitstaff was great. My first glass of wine arrived early and the second glass arrived with the entree. Perfect. And the... More

I just returned from a wonderful dinner at Romanelli's. We decided to go because it's close to the Marriott where we're staying. We were pleasantly greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter, Erik, was right there to answer our questions and take our drink orders. I was undecided between broiled seafood or wasabi encrusted tuna. Following Erik's suggestion I ordered the...

We had the veal Parmesan and the eggplant Parmesan for dinner on November 8 and were happy with our meals. The salads were good, too -- especially the balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Very nice place. Rachel took good care of us. We'll definitely be back.

I had the linguini with meat sauce and sausage. I did not need the sausage. Their meat sauce had large chunks of meat. Delish!! Highly recommend.

OMG.....you have got to eat breakfast here! Homey, clean, excellent wait staff (Ben was the best), great menu and home fries to die for. First morning had chipped beef on home fries - came with your choice of toast (buttered like a piece of toast should be) and bacon. SO GOOD! Second morning had omelet with side of the best... More
