A pleasant surpise form the rest

We had a great dinner there after hearing some so so feedback but it was a good meal and we really enjoyed the place. The food seemed fresh and it was well cooked. I enjoyed the salmon and my wife loved the veal dish.

Romanelli's is a clean, crisp restaurant with a HUGE menu. Our appitizer was a sausage Flatbread which, while tasty, was prepared with large, uneven chunks of pepper, onion and sliced tomato. This was followed by a substantial, fresh salad. Two of our main courses had a tomato sauce which tasted like a jar sauce. My lasagna was just OK as... More

We had a very good meal tonight. Romanelli's is down the road from the Seaview hotel. I had no idea this place even existed. What a pleasant surprise. Our waiter, Ian, was excellent. He was always there when we needed him, and provided very prompt service. The food was excellent. My steamed clams in garlic, butter and oils were delicious.... More

Have eaten here a number of times for all three meals. This time we went for brunch on Mother's Day and despite the restaurant being literally packed with people in large parties who had reservations, the restaurant still had room for couples and we didn't get lost in the crowd. Got seated quickly, service was fast and friendly, food was... More

We were looking for someplace to take my daughter (who attends Stockton University) to dinner for her birthday. We did an on-line search and found Romanelli's. Reviews looked pretty good. We made reservations and off we went. There were 6 of us, each having something different. Everything was delish. Worth mentioning was the crab soup, onion soup, bruschetta, crab cakes,... More

If you're looking for a full belly stop ,at Romanelli's. Their breakfast omelettes are tasty and filling. Lunch salads are delicious and variety of sandwiches & entrees will delight even the finicky eater.

My friend and I stopped here after our visit to the Forsythe Refuge up the road. It was 3 PM and the place was nearly empty. We were seated immediately, given menus and our waiter came by and took drink orders. When he returned, I ordered the #10, a greek salad and added chicken and caesar dressing. My friend ordered...

If you are looking for an inexpensive Sysco style prepared meal, you have the right place. The building is beautiful on Route 9 in Oceanville/Galloway NJ the people are wonderful too. However if you want a home cooked meal you are not going to get it here. The products all appear to be good quality prepared Sysco products. The facility... More
