We live in the area so Romeo's is our local place. The place is spacious and you can always get a table. Their portions are huge and good value for money, although we tend to find the food to be average. Very nice and friendly service.

This place is a Toorak landmark and the service is always good. The food is overpriced for what it is but that does not deter the patrons, the place is always busy and has a good atmosphere. More a place to have a snack or light meal and a few drinks.

I have been coming here since i was a young kid with the family, and now with friends and stil the same family :) The menu never changes, and the servings dont either! Great for a small get together, and great for going for sweets, esspecially the pancakes after a movie or the theatre! My personal favourites is the Chilli... More

One of several cafes near Toorak Village, this is always popular with the locals. The menu has the usual staples; the portions are large and sumptuous. Good for lunch or a casual dinner.

It is about time this restaurant - closed down, refit their shop and get a chef/cook who can cook food which is modern Italian and not mush pasta swimming in gluggy cream sauce, schnitzel which is like a piece of cardboard on a plate with a ton of chips, who eats food like that these days.

Romeos has been around forever,but it time to either reinvigorate or shut up shop like alot of shops in toorak rd. Tired and rundown looking but food is consistently of good quality perhaps alittle overpriced. Serves are of a good size and i have always found customer service of a high standard. I would recommend and i will be back.

The best indicator of this restaurant is the fact that the magnificent Manhattan is always full while this one is usually empty. The service is rude with attitude. The menu is awfully old fashioned and way overpriced. I cannot recommend this restaurant less. It is taking up space where a good cafe should be. Which annoys me, as a local.... More
