Every aspect of going to Romanelli's exceeds expectation. The kitchen is always spot on. The staff is welcoming and professional. We have never had a bad experience.

We were originally going to dine at a restaurant in Historic Smithville village. We were taking my mother out to dinner for the holidays. But that restaurant had nearly an hour wait, so we wound up hitting the road. We passed Romanelli's, where my mom mentioned she had a dinner recently which she really liked. So we all decided to...

We first stopped for dinner primarily as they have a liquor licence. Opened up to very nice atmosphere and decor. The menu is vast and we chose seafood dishes. Wonderful tastes and textures. Waiter was friendly and attentive. We noticed they also had breakfast and lunch. When the local "favorite" was full, we returned for breakfast. Lump crab eggs Benedict... More

My husband and I visited for an early dinner. Great service but just an ok meal. We would probably give them another shot with the idea of having pizza or a sandwich.

Welcomed warmly by our server Ben who made sure everything was perfect. Hard to believe this place is 9 years old. Everything looks brand new...Sparkley clean! I ordered an omelet with shrimp/spinach, just amazing! Fluffy, perfect..never... More

The restaurant was very accommodating for food allergies. Our waiter was awesome and patient with us as we navigated their long and slightly confusing menu. The food was good. Of note, it looks fancier outside than it is inside. I at first was a bit concerned walking in with sneakers but was very comfortable in my casual attire in the... More

We went on vacation to South Jersey off season and were pleasantly surprised by our dinners here. The food was delicious, there was too much to eat, so we always had leftovers for lunch the next day and the waitstaff was great. My first glass of wine arrived early and the second glass arrived with the entree. Perfect. And the... More

I just returned from a wonderful dinner at Romanelli's. We decided to go because it's close to the Marriott where we're staying. We were pleasantly greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter, Erik, was right there to answer our questions and take our drink orders. I was undecided between broiled seafood or wasabi encrusted tuna. Following Erik's suggestion I ordered the...
