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. (sounds delicious + I... More

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.

We came here with family for dinner on a Saturday. Super busy and reservations are not accepted...bummer. But we endured the 45-minute wait and enjoyed a delightful dinner. Good child options, but more important--great menu options for the adults! Three of us had different pasta dishes--meat, cheese and seafood--and everyone was very happy and very full!! We will be back!

There's always a wait because the food is delicious, the staff is friendly and efficient, and everything is affordable. Definitely worth a small wait for this little gem!
