Busy Saturday night with neighbors who selected this place. We had a fun relaxing evening. Soups and salads were yummy, entrees were good, and we skipped dessert. My husband and I are foodies, and this place has decent plain food. Atmosphere was pleasant. It's not gourmet or fine dining, but it's a good meal at a reasonable price.

We decided to drive from Stone Harbor to meet with someone coming from Buffalo, NY. We read a review on restaurant.com and purchase a coupon.. They no longer participate. We were nine adults, all ordering appetizers and entrees. The eggplant rollatini was totally gross (they took it back once they looked at it), the pasta was cooked in what tasted... More

We were visiting family at the Marriott Fairway Villas which is down the road from this small Italian restaurant. We were surprised by the rather extensive menu and quality of the food. Not bad at all and our waiter was pleasant and attentive to our needs. Prices were fair and if you don't want to travel far or take the... More

Had a delicious breakfast and impeccable service from Erik. Totally recommend the Red White & Blue Stuffed French Toast! Enough for two!

It is a busy place, a bit like a diner. Service was good and food was fresh. It looks like fine dining from outside (maybe in the evenings it is) but you can grab a quick lunch before getting on the road (it's on Highway 9).

We enjoyed Romanelli's Garden Cafe 3 times, once for dinner and twice for breakfast, during our week long stay at Marriott's Fairway Villas. Our dinners, lasagna, and veal parmigiana, were very, very good and my wife certainly enjoyed her key lime martini. Service was very good we enjoyed our conversation with the manager.

It may sound odd, but I was craving greens, and their house salad was better than expected. All of us loved our entrees and the service was very good. I'd return here any time.

We went to the restaurant twice during our stay at the Marriott fairway villas. We were unsure where to go and the valet told us about this restaurant. We went for breakfast the first time and were impressed at the service and the atmosphere. We both had a great meal. We decided to give it a try for dinner and... More

The burgers were huge but a little well done. The seared tuna with the crusted sesame was EXCELLENT, the lasagna was large but not very flavorful, the chicken fingers were to my sons liking and my husband had the pork sandwich and he enjoyed it very much.
