We were driving north from Atlantic City when we found this local restaurant and tried it for breakfast. It was New Year's Eve, so many of the local businesses were closed. Romanelli's was a great find! The staff was one of the most welcoming we have ever run across. The person who appeared to be the manager knew all of... More

Went to Romanelli's for NewYearsEve with friends. The food was great but the service was inexcusable. We had 7:00pm reservations and was seated on time. That was the good part. We didn't see our entrees for 90 minutes after ordering. All tables around us were eating and some were done before we were served. After numerous inquiries, we were never... More

Came across this restaurant while on a ride and looking for a good lunch stop.It delivered and then some. The menu was varied and unusual but provided plenty of choices. The service was fine and the food was very satisfying.Would return any time we are in the area.

Stopped there for breakfast. The service was very good, the meal itself was very good except for the sausage was sort of odd tasting and didn't really care for it, all else was very good

My mom and I were in town and had lunch at the Garden Cafe. While I was quite tempted by their breakfast specials, I went for the ravioli and meatball special. Wow! Truly outstanding! And the she crab chowder was so good I had to bring two bowls home!

Romanelli's has it all. Great food made with prime ingredients; everything homemade. We have been there numerous times in the past three years, and have sampled breakfast, lunch and dinner. All superb. The staff is attentive and friendly, while professional, and make you feel welcome when you arrive, and like a member of the family when you leave. This restaurant... More

We are visiting the area and wanted Italian. The restaurant has a lovely, inviting decor. Our server was very helpful and eager to please. We both enjoyed our dinners, great food and huge portions! I had chicken parm and my husband had lasagna, both delicious. If we come back to the area we would definitely return.
