“New restaurant, well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

My wife and I called by for a quick lunch to check out this new restaurant in our neighbourhood. It is a basic interior with plenty of natural light from the large windows facing the street but darker towards the rear where there are private dining spaces. The interior is quite stark but it has a diversity of seating options from high bar side tables to private table spaces against the wall. Service was immediate and though the wine list and menu are relatively limited we found it to offer an attractive choice of Italia based foods. Our items, kingfish with fennel, crab, radish and other delectable salad items and meatballs with a sublime rich smoky bacon and tomato sauce were excellent and the two wines, by the glass highly recommendable. We are pleased to see this now local dining option and based on this experience we will become regulars.

“Great Atmosphere, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Romulus - remus is an excellent Italian restaurant on Bridge road Richmond.. The Atmosphere is great - its modern, yet rustic. Very comfortable - seemingly very trendy. I had the Antipasto plate of 5 of the chefs selection. Shared with another person - it was delicious but too much, didn't quite need that much. Had the Duck risotto which was fantastic. An OK selection of wine, but not fantastic. Had a Sangiovese which was great but not on the wine list - so have a look at the wine specials board, or ask. Great place to meet and eat...

“New but very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Had lunch today at this fine new establishment and what a nice surprise this place turned out to be. We were warmly welcomed by Sean the manager who went out of his way to ensure we had a very enjoyable meal and the way that Sean made suggestions from the comprehensive menu certainly showed that he knows his stuff his food and wine choices worked wonderfully well together and for such a new business ( only been open just over 2 weeks ) the staff and chefs really are well versed in how to make a restaurant hum. The artichoke and white anchovies were excellent choices and the calamari I had for mains rated very highly indeed
All in all found this a very well run modern restaurant that we would not hesitate to recommend to any one looking for a meal in the Richmond area to all at Romulus & Remus we would like to say thank you and good luck with your new business
