It would be easy to drive right on by Romanelli's, unless you were looking for it, which we were thanks to our sister in law who had recommended it. On two breakfast visits we truly enjoyed the delicious, freshly prepared Crab Cake Benedict. However, with our most recent visit, we had a server named Eric who warmly greeted us as... More

I looked on the internet to possibly find a promising restaurant prior to visiting the area. Romanelli's Garden Café seemed it might be interesting. We stopped and were pleasantly surprised to find it exceeded our expectations. It includes a deli, bar, and group seating, as well as a variety of seating arrangements. The décor looked expensive, but the food was... More

After a long day you need to get out of the car and rest. Pools, Casinos and Golf set up an enjoyable dinner at Romanelli's. Joe, a waiter, recommended the Blackened Chicken Alfredo as his favorite which helped me decide on the Romanelli's Caesar Salad with Blackened Chicken. A great choice. Nicole service was terrific with Italian wedding soup and... More

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
