We were staying at the Marriott a few miles away and opted to get take out from Romanellis. The two dishes we had- eggplant roallatini and the NJ chicken pot pie were great. Nice side salads and bread came with the meals.

We always enjoy great food! Usually there for brunch. The staff is excellent and take great care of you. Once they get to know you, they anticipate your needs very well. Romanelli's is a top spot to visit every weekend for me!

I was visiting U.S. Fish and Wildlife's Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge probably a mile from this restaurant to do wildlife photography. Someone at the wildlife refuge had mentioned a wonderful "garden restaurant", and I was fortunate to drive right by it looking for a late lunch meal. Right away I felt welcome as if I had wandered into an... More

Shrimp with Raspberry Wasabi dipping sauce, She Crab Soup, Prime Rib, and Ravioli Florentine with Crab. Nicely done. Thank you to our server, Rachel. The only down side was that both of my husband's first options were sold out. They did apologize and offered him the prime rib at the lower price of the other steak dish.

This is a friendly and elegant restaurant with nice decor. I liked the airy, open feeling of a high ceiling. The service was proper. Lunch options were standard- chicken chicken chicken. I imagine their dinner menu is much broader. The food we ate was a 3 1/2 . It is a likable place and we are likely to be back... More

I was in the mood for some "comfort food"...hot delicious comfort food. We checked out Tripadvisor and found Romanellis Garden Cafe in Galloway.
