First of all, the stuffed dates are amazing. Just saying. I could eat the whole plate myself and it's beautifully garnished with pear and strawberries. Then each of us has something different : cannoli, chicken marsala and another chicken dish I can't remember the name of. Each was excellent! I've been here before and loved it and was not disappointed.... More

Pretense happened upon entering the restaurant, the place was empty and the owner acted like he would have to try and squeeze us in. The food was flavorless microwaved meals have more flavor and authenticity. The service was fair, but either they were used to no one eating the food or didn't care. No one asked how the food was,...

It's hard to make Italian food bland and tasteless but this place does. It was almost empty at 7 on a Saturday night and we understand why. Awful.

We stumbled into this restaurant on a dark and rainy night. It was warm and inviting, the service was good and the food was quite tasty. I had the pasta with home-made bolognese sauce and it was fantastic. The owner was walking around checking in with tables to make sure they were happy. It had a good, family feel. Glad... More

We were greeted by the very gregarious owner who offered us a complimentary glass of Prosecco....nice touch. The atmosphere is traditional Italian, felt a bit like NYC little Italy. Sadly, the food is not nearly as authentic. My feeling is the ingredients used are not of the highest quality from the cheeses to the sauce. To me the key to... More

If this was the only restaurant in Hood River, I would drive to The Dalles! Service was terrible and the food lackluster and tasteless. When my entree arrived it was only half complete, my husband's was lukewarm and tasteless. Our son-in-law went to add pepper to his dish and the lid came off the shaker. He had to scrape pepper...

Had the worst experience ever at this restaurant. First, we were given a table in the bar when another table was just as available. The table was directly in the path of the breeze every time the door opened. Service started out good but quickly went down hill. It was slow. Had to ask for water and the waiter never... More

They moved from The Dalles, OR about 4 years ago and have a wonderful,, cozy place for dinner. Portions are more than adequate and the desserts are some of the best we've had. They use top quality products - heavy cream, olive oil, real food and the tastes are great.

We had the vegetable ravioli, the mushroom risotto, and a superb veal dish. All were good to excellent. The food was superb. The wait staff was helpful and attentive. I definitely recommend Romuls (Italian) Restaurant in Hood River Oregon.

Romul's is nicely decorated in an Italian décor; although a little bit too much. It could benefit by getting rid of some, specially the knick-knack items. Service was friendly and efficient. The background music was delightful (if you like Bocelli and Josh Groban; we do). Everything was great as we started with red wine and the delicious warm bread. However,... More
