My partner and I ordered Chicken Parm with Spaghetti and weere pleased when an elderly friendly server came over to take our order and said she'd bring bread over right away. There was a 15 minute wait for the bread and we asked for butter because we don't care for the oil they place in a small dish - and... More

The service was good the food was not. I'm convinced it's frozen and reheated. It had been 10 years since we had gone and now I know why. Horrible food.

Was at Romano's for a business dinner in May 2017. The place is located as a stand-alone in the Menlo Park Mall, facing US 1 southbound. There is plenty of parking, close to the entrance. The meal comprised bread and salad (picture) with the entrée chicken parm (picture). As to comparably-priced places, I rate the chicken parm superior to that... More

Haven't been to a Romano 's in over 5 years - it used to be a high end Italian restaurant . This one was dirty, service was below average , and food as good as a fast food Italian drive through

My meal was properly prepared and extremely delicious. The appetizers were great (loaded fries and spicy meatballs). I really enjoyed my experience ; the great staff, friendly servers are a credit to restaurant. I have already recommended it to other family members and friends.

My husband and I are always happy dining here. This time we both ordered Chicken Parmesan with our choice of pasta and topped with lots of mozzarella cheese. It was tender and delicious, but the pasta lacked enough sauce. We alerted the server and he immediately brought a bowl of extra sauce. As soon as we sat down, we received... More

Traveling for business, was hoping to find a familiar restaurant. My meal and service were so nice, I am surprised the place wasn't packed. Maybe the World Series had folks at home. My server, service and food were top-notch

Have been going to Romano's Macaroni Grill since it opened years ago. You can always get a good meal there with fresh made bread for your table.

The sort of Italian atmosphere is comfortable and the food is always good. It was uncrowded at lunch, service was very good, and the $10.50 lunch special was delicious and a lot of pasta. With some wine lunch for three was $82 with tip- must have been the 4 glasses of house red? We've come here frequently over the years... More
