I can't say enough how delicious this place is. The ambiance is great. Decorative but not overwhelming. I felt comfortable at my own table. Staff friendly and helpful. We started with a peach martini....I would GO just for these. We shared the shrimp scampi and the eggplant parmighan. Both dishes... read more

Let's start with the cons: The parking situation in downtown Fullerton is a hassle no matter where you go. So be prepared to park in one of the structures and walk a bit to the restaurant. You can enter the restaurant from Harbor Blvd. or the alley behind it (which has a parking lot, but good luck trying to park... More

Visiting Fullerton, we took our hosting family out to dinner night after Thanksgiving. Great food! LARGE portions. My husband and I always split our meals and we couldn't finish ours! Caprese salad tasted as if the matzarella was homemade. Bring your own wine as there is a $10 corkage fee!

I was so pleasantly surprised to see this place packed on a Sunday evening. However, this Italian restaurant has great space and comfortable seating for groups over 4. We were 7 and had a wonderful spacious dining experience. The wait staff is highly efficient with attention to the guest and overall guest experience. The new owners to be were present... More

Roman Cucina is a little hole-in-the-wall. I honestly would have passed it and never thought to go in unless it was for my friend's birthday. And wow! For a seemingly small restaurant, it has a big personality and fantastic service. The decor was very beautiful and upscale. And the service was so good. All of our waiters were very attentive...

Delicious food, great value and courteous staff. Fresh bread and butter brought to table and salads come with meals. The marinara sauce is excellent. The one downside is wait times as they always seem crowded. They open at 5PM for dinner only. Great ambience for couples or groups and close to downtown Fullerton bars and restaurants.

Everything about this restaurant is amazing. The managers are very friendly, remember you by face, sincerely care when they ask you how your doing. I've been coming here for a few years and the service only seems to improve. The food is outstanding...always! Steak Milanese, Chicken Milanese, the Alfredo is Heaven in a bowl. A++++++++ Favorite Italian Restaurant Anywhere!

We had a very enjoyable evening. Staff, food & drinks were great. The wait wasn't too long for two. Good size portions, we will definitely be going back.

My wife and I like to share a meal here. Portions are quite large and we are trying to do some portion control. Dining here is very romantic and upscale. The wine choices are superior (of course I do not share my wine). It is even a nice place to get carryout.
