How can a modern day restaurant not serve 100% fresh food, I expect it from a takeaway for £10-£20 but a town centre restaurant with such good reviews for £50 im disgusted. Perfect location very nice staff, two owners or bosses who are obviously happy stood behind bar counting the very small amount of profit they receive compared to what... More

Ate here last night, very busy little restaurant, typical Italian. Really enjoyed the food, everything cooked fresh and served piping hot, large portion of creamy garlic mushrooms for starter and pasta main course perfectly cooked. All the meals being served looked delicious giant calzone, chicken and steak; will have to eat here again to try other options on the menu.

We have sampled quite a few of the meals from the menu, particularly the different steaks that is on offer. I am also a lover of traditional Italian food and this is what I usually go... More

I went with my partner on a Friday night. Lovely little Italian restaurant. We had a starter and a main each. Quite possibly the best Italian we've had for ages. Little gem in barnsley. Service was excellent from the owner and the girls. Will defiantly be back.thankyou for a fantastic evening.

It has a brilliant ambiance and I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone who likes good food, nice, helpful, friendly staff and having... More

If it's not on the menu then ask because they will do what you want to match your taste buds. So to Salvo, Mario,... More

I would like to thank all the staff at Romano's as the night was wonderful. Our meals were great quality and good potions for the price we paid. Mario, Salvo and the waitresses are all welcoming and very professional, they all look the part too! It is an advantage being served food by lovely, happy people. Recommend every time!

Me and my mum visited in January and although it was very quiet the atmosphere was still welcoming and homely. The staff always treat us like close friends and the food is gorgeous. Big portions too!! Much better than leaving unsatisfied. Thanks to all the Bistro Romano staff!
