I tried to go here several times before I actually did because every time I went, it was very crowded, which I guess means lots of people like it. When we did go, the food was good.

This is one of our regular places that we eat at. The staff is very attentive, and friendly. The food is delicious and they have regular specials on certain nights. They have the best gluten free pasta and all the menu items are a hit. My son loves the lasagna, my husband love the pasta trombrello, my daughters love the... More

I'll start first by saying that the food here is delicious. They serve the best lasagna I have ever eaten outside a home. We were a group of six and everyone loved their meals and took leftovers home. So what's the problem? Roman Cucina doesn't take reservations. O.K. we got there and waited for the restaurant to open. We were... More

This is a family favorite. I love their menu, everything is delicious. The food is not over complicated and over spiced. It's just delicious.

I wish they would take reservations because we love the food, but hate waiting. The bar is too small to pass the time with drinks because there are not enough seats and the stools are too large and permanent so they can't be moved. Love almost all the things on the menu, but wish they had more abilities to mix... More

1 out of 3 was good. The second was fair, third not what was expected. Server who took order was helpful and speedy. Order was ready at time agreed upon. Server ensured everything was included. I could feel all was super hot. Off to a great start. The eggplant parm had more pasta than eggplant but was flavorful. The penne... More

We have eaten several times and it is always EXCELLENT. The food is fresh, authentic and prepared very well. Both my wife and I are vegan and they modify dishes to suit our diet while making the dishes very tasty. The atmosphere is a bit lively but there still space for a calm meal and a good conversation. The service... More

I can't say enough how delicious this place is. The ambiance is great. Decorative but not overwhelming. I felt comfortable at my own table. Staff friendly and helpful. We started with a peach martini....I would GO just for these. We shared the shrimp scampi and the eggplant parmighan. Both dishes were EXCELLENT. The wine, a malbec, was even better at... More

Let's start with the cons: The parking situation in downtown Fullerton is a hassle no matter where you go. So be prepared to park in one of the structures and walk a bit to the restaurant. You can enter the restaurant from Harbor Blvd. or the alley behind it (which has a parking lot, but good luck trying to park... More

Visiting Fullerton, we took our hosting family out to dinner night after Thanksgiving. Great food! LARGE portions. My husband and I always split our meals and we couldn't finish ours! Caprese salad tasted as if the matzarella was homemade. Bring your own wine as there is a $10 corkage fee!
