Delicious and generous portions - go there hungry! If you love cheese, you will be very happy - order the tasty mozzarella garlic bread for sure. My fave pasta dish is the Sausage Mozzarella - you will be taking some home with you! A heap of pasta with sauce, ricotta cheese, a just-spicy-enough link of Italian sausage, and of course... More

We love to go to our favorite Italian place that in the neighborhood. Usually a wait but we get a cocktail and just enjoy talking at the bar. My husband gets a Manhattan and I'll have some red wine. I like the lemon shrimp pasta and he will get a mixture that he makes up. They are willing to add... More

Great Italian with good food and service and easy decision for dinner after a movie at Greenfield. Enjoy their Romeo and Julietta seafood salad and all the pastas are a good choice.

I remember eating lunch at this place back when I moved here in the early 90's, when it was run the previous owners. Good food at reasonable prices. It sort of fell off my radar due to there being an abundance of choices for Italian fare here in south O.C. A friend had gone here on a recommendation one Sunday... More

We stopped here on the way home on a Friday night and there was a line out the door so we figured it must be amazing. We ordered the Marinara sauce and Chicken Parm to go. They came with a salad that was marginal- and the dressing was mostly oil. The pasta / sauces were ok- actually a lot of... More

Delicious food and great service. Come early to avoid a wait. Everything we've tried has been good. From the crisp cold salads, Italian wedding soup, lasagna, fettucini alfredo with chicken Milanese, penne with meatballs, Gluten free fusilli with shrimp in a lemon cream sauce, and the cheesecake. We will be back again.

Roman Cucina was purchased by a wonderful couple and they have renamed it Romano Cucina. They have improved on a spectacular menu of the predecessors and continue the presentation of Outstanding selections. The Lasagne is terrific.

Dropped by here with business colleagues - I'm a bit of a seafood linguine connoisseur - to my surprise, here's an italian restaurant with no seafood linguine on the menu (especially being close to the ocean - disappointed) I ordered a SHRIMP SCAMPI instead - Shrimp sauteed in olive oil, white wine and lemon garlic sauce.

We had chicken parmesan, very large portion, but drowning in burnt cheese and overcooked noodles. Other tables ordered pizza -- which lloked much nicer than our entrees.
