My husband and I took my sister-in-law and her husband there a few weeks ago for dinner, my husband and I were there once before and enjoyed it the first time, maybe a year ago. My salad was good and the wedding soup was good. The dinner though was horrible. Imagine all moisture being sucked out of the food even... More

Romanelli's was recommended for a good Italian dinner. The food was fine and our waiter was very efficient, but a musical group was playing very loudly and everyone was requesting to be moved to a more quiet area. If I ever choose to go again, I would first call to be sure there was no "entertainment".

Just a short drive from the shops of Smithville, we discovered this restaurant while looking for a gas station. It's elegant appearance (decorated for Christmas) made us think it was going to be very expensive, but we'd already been to Oyster Creek and Fred and Ethel's and wanted something new - so we went in. A pleasant surprise to find... More

This place has changed. When the sweet potato fries were served it was hard to tell what it was,something black and rubbery, my face said it all and the waitress said she would take it back. This was the point at which we should have departed. My elderly mother was served this reheated meal with something white on it, like... More

We found the food quite good, the service just fine and the prices moderate. The evening special of chicken francais was tasty and more than we could eat. They also have a very nice bakery. We bought two muffins for breakfat and found them very good but a bit expensive. There are not too many places for dinner in Galloway,... More

Made 3:30 p.m. reservations for myself, wife, 2-yr old son and mother-in-law at this local favorite. Food is always good. Today, on Thanksgiving, it was excellent. The only problems that Romanelli's and its owner Rick is face right now is its excessive and well-deserved popularity. There wasn't enough parking, servers, space : none of that was his fault. He's doing... More

Just had dinner there earlier this evening. Good basic Italian dining. Casual atmosphere, friendly and attentive wait staff. Portions were very generous and food was good. Nothing extraordinary but a place where you won't go wrong!
