This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Barnsley and I have tried them all! Excellent atmosphere, service and food. The staff are always welcoming and friendly. The service is super fast and this never impacts the quality of the food. Always my first choice for any occasion. Being a town centre location you wouldn't always expect such authenticity... More

Unimpressed is an understatement. Worse than a cheap italian cafe... In Bognor. Lack lustre welcome, given a bottle of Peroni when requesting half a lager and the bland happy hour menu left us less than minimally inspired. Mushrooms were infused with bland and when asked if we wanted to take our remaining 3/4 of a pizza home we politely declined.... More

Every time I visit Romanos I think "will I be bored now with it??? " and every time I enjoy it a little more than the time before. The manager and Owner are so genuine and really want you to enjoy yourselves there. The only down point for me istaht the portions are too large for me. Really enjoy it... More

Over priced and over rated. I went with a large group of friends expectations were high. How disappointing with choice, cost and portion size poor.

Been here a few times with a large group of friends. Service and atmosphere has always been good. The sing song at the end of the meal has always gone down well on special occasions. The staff are attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them.

I came with friends two weeks ago, we had never been before and didnt know what to expect. We are very happy with the customer service and the quality of the food. We had a chat with the manager who bent over backwards to get us what we wanted. Lovely guy. The waitress was very helpful and we are very... More

Heard a lot of good reviews but on visiting couldn't help but feel underwhelmed. The place was far too hot and I had to step outside to cool down. Food was OK but felt that I could have walked 10 minutes up the road and got better food for a better price. Gave the impression that they were understaffed by... More

Iv been a few times here and always enjoyed the food. We came on Wednesday for a family members leaving doo there was 25 of us went. Nothing was to much for them with sorting bill out and letting us pay for drinks as we went on. They let us have a good laugh with singing and dancing. And everyone... More
