I have written a favorable review of Romeo's in the past. It was GREAT when Lino and Manuela were there. The next owner kept it up OK. Unfortunately, I have to retract my previous review. We went there almost every Sunday for a few years, sometimes more. Last week was the last week for us. The food was not good... More

I've been a loyal customer for almost 2 years now. I used to go there about two to three times a week. Never again!! The food is actually pretty good, especially the pizza, which is a shame because overworked staff suffer for their efforts. The staff is friendly enough, but the food comes out slower every time I go. The... More

We are big fans of another pizza place in town, but wanted to try someplace new. A friend recommended Romeo's to us, so we figured why not? Ordered two sweet teas, two salads, and a plan pie, well done. Everything was tasty. My only issue was that the pizza seemed to cool down really fast. Wondering if they were pre-made... More

Since the new owners have taken over this italian restaurant has steadily declined. With so many italian restaurants with (PIZZA) this has to be the worst. Would not recommend to anybody.

I was hoping, after reading more recent reviews, that things had improved. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Excuses are still made, along with consistent mistakes. Wait staff is pleasant but overworked. Food standards have slipped drastically. When you've been a loyal customer who visits at least 3 times a week you have a better picture then one person who comes... More

Mr. Patel (new owner) is slowly learning the fine art of having a successful restaurant and keeping good employees. He went back to the original fries for lunch-so again they are some of the best in Lakeland. Plus he's now gone back to the original meat sauce for his pastas... soooo much better than the previous owner's sauce (that included... More

I've never had a bad dining experience in the numerous meals that I've had. Servers are friendly, yet work hard to make your experience special. On occasions, the offer specials which are always worth trying; some of the best meals I have ever had have come from these offerings. Their pizza is incredible too. Well worth the effort to get...

The food is really good here, The main owner patel does not appriciate any of the GOOD employees that he let walk out due to his behavior. Its sad how he talks down to all of them and for that I would never return there. He overworks and under pays almost everyone there. He does not know how to run... More

My wife and I drove a little over an hour to meet some great friends at this restaurant. We were skeptical at first, because my wife, who's italian mother was a fantastic cook as well as a great cook herself , is VERY critical of italian restaurants. In fact , in our thirty plus years of marriage there may be... More

After recent “not so good” reviews, we were skeptic about this place but considering other positive ones, decided to give it a try anyway are so glad that we did. It was entirely positive experience. Food and service both were excellent, fresh and delicious food with attentive service at great prices, what else can you ask for!!!
