Pleasant Find!

We made reservations and off we went. There were 6 of us, each having something different. Everything... read more

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

Crowded Friday night but still good service. Food portion was good and very tasty. Not sure if I'd go back since the same type food can be had nearby for less money.

Side salad and bread service were delicious. The eggplant parmesan was ok, but had too much tomato sauce on the entree. Wouldn't be my first choice for dinner in the area, but I wouldn't run screaming from the place, either.

Food is not consistent, portions are ample. Restaurant is very pretty and staff is friendly. Parking lot is too small

The food is good, especially the breakfast items. The pancakes and omelets are wonderful. They give you so much food! I've had wonderful experiences eating inside the restaurant. However, having the food delivered can be a problem, especially when you order a large quantity of food. A few times I've had to either go to the restaurant because I was... More
