I went with two friends tonight to have dinner and to say the least ya this meal ruined my day. It sucks because sometimes as a tour guide I tell people to eat here because of the reasonable prices and before it was fine, now under new management apparently , they have killed any hope of me recommending this place....

Me and my wife went there on a Sunday evening caught by the very nice manner of the waitress standing at the door of the restaurant. As she suggested, we took a pizza with parma ham and that was amazing..we would pay more to eat again a pizza like this!!!! The pizza maker came outside for a one minute break... More

Two waiters were around, on male on his first day and one female with an attitude she didn't like to work. We ordered Two bottles of wine. By opening they managed Two times to break... More

The portions were very big and all the food we had very tasty. The service was friendly.Out of all the restaurants in Amsterdam that we... More

We went here for lunch and were impressed by the delicious Italian food and the nice service. The fairly low prices makes this one of the best value deals. Their lasagna was the best I have ever eaten, even better than in Italy!

The problem we were having finding a nice Italian restaurant was that they were so expensive, it was my partners birthday and I was paying... So I didn't want something extortionate!! This one had very reasonable prices. The hardest part of dining at Romana's is that there is so many delicious dishes to choose from, it really makes deciding a... More

Looking for a simple pizza and pasta restaurant, and Romana's exceeded expectations. Service was swift and efficient, brought water and refills without asking. Pizza was generous, pasta was delicious and filling, salad rucolo was fresh with olives, capers, sun dried tomatoes, mozzerella and parmesan. Glasses of wine were good value at less than four euros - overall somewhere i would... More

Lovely place for a well cooked pizza or pasta. Friendly staff and tasty food at cheap price. Tea or coffee on the house. Simple surroundings but good atmosphere. Service was quick and there was a huge turnover of customers all evening.
