The food and atmosphere were wonderful. The servings are large and the bread was really good. Crab Cannelloni was great and the Risotto with Pork Cheeks was delicious.

Stick with The Specials; they always are specially tasty and good value. Friendly service, romantic setting. The date appetizers are delicious.

I feel a little bad leaving this review because everyone who worked at Romul's was super nice to us and I really *really* wanted to like the food there. I had the chicken parm with alfredo sauce, and my husband had the manicotti. Huge portion...More

Made an early evening visit after scoping this place out on a walk the night before. Very friendly staff and a nice varied menu. We had the manicotti and the lamb ossobuco. The manicotti was really good. Good selection of Italian wines and they weren’t...More
