A consummate stayer

I've got to hand it to the Romeo's proprietors: they're consistent, they're reliable, and they keep on pulling in the customers while other Toorak cafes and restaurants come and go. At 6pm on a Friday evening I was wanting something light to eat/drink, and Romeo's looked open and busy; next-door... read more

We went to Romeo's after a big day working in uniform on Anzac Day. The meal was excellent! The cost was very reasonable. The ambience great !

I love Romeos. Been coming here since the '80's. It has not changed. The music and decor are the same. Menu the same. Food consistently good. Fast service. Great menu. Large serves. Friendly and efficient staff. Our family favourite.

My wife & I chose to eat at Romeo's Bistro on our final evening in Melbourne before heading back to Adelaide. I had passed this restaurant several times on the weekend, and remembered the location as a place I had dinner way back in 2005, so I was curious to head back there, as I recalled the pasta was quite...

It is a yearly nostalgia visit, an annual outing with my sister during a girls day out. A glass iof Bubbles, always including a Strawberry, & Spagetti Marinara in oil & garlic. I have been enjoying this dish for over 25 years & it never disappoints. The decor probably hasn't changed in that time, the staff are always friendly &... More

Foods great, staff are friendly and the atmosphere is fun. No serious wow factor and can get a bit too noisy but its cozy and i'll definitely be going back.

Nothing to fault here, except that we wish we had more time. Popped in for a quick lunch (40mins) and were upset we couldn't indulge longer with dessert. We were served almost instantly upon arrival, with a friendly staff member who was more than happy to explain some of the menu to us. I tried the rigatoni spicy beef pasta... More

Only good thing was the food. Waiter was terrible. Didn't bother checking on us all night. Didn't ask if we wanted more wine, dessert or coffees. It wasn't very busy yet they still pushed out as quickly as possible. We felt like our presence was an inconvenience to the restaurant. At the end of the day when you go out... More

Had another great meal here. The food is straight forward, down to earth, good portion size and very tasty. Nothing fancy (except for the unbelievable pancakes), service is professional, quick and everyone is very friendly. Thank you George for running such an enjoyable restaurant!

Romeo's is an established "Italian" restaurant in Toorak. Its neighbour, Manhattan, is a step up in both decor and cuisine, but thats not to detract from Romeo's….its just different. I suppose why I am less than enthusiastic is that in comparison to a number of restaurants I have visited, for the price, the meals just don't make it. A $20... More
