    Service was super slow for our party of 11 people. Food was good… lasagna was mediocre, too much sauce… my appetizer came with my main course. Would not go back to celebrate any event there, after 9pm with DJ it gets loud.

    Dinner was great. Service is great once you’re seated. They just need to do a better job greeting people when they come in. Takes long to get seated when they don’t keep an eye on who is coming in.

    I rated Romano's a 4/5 but really it's a 7/10. Was there with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. The experience was good overall. The food and ambiance was good and the overall experience was good overall, but the service was sub-par. As for the service, we didn't see our server again after she took our entree orders. The waitstaff brought out our meals and we didn't see our server again until it was time to clear our plates and offer us dessert. She seemed to be preoccupied with a larger group. Regardless, either the restaurant staffs up or she needs more help. I expect the same level of service as anyone else going to the restaurant. Especially with tip culture asking for 22-25% now. We didn't have dessert or coffee and we got our bill. Didn't appreciate the server standing over me while I'm punching in her tip and paying the bill on the machine. Regardless of the subpar service, I tipped 25%. However, with so many Italian restaurants in Vaughn and the GTA as a whole, we don't feel the need to return and will try other Italian restaurants in the future.

    First visit to this restaurant. Food was good and service was okay. For an Italian restaurant we should not have had to ask for Parmesan cheese for the pasta twice. The big issue was the loud music that was pounding in our heads the entire meal. To the point t of being obnoxious ! For a restaurant of this calibre, we expected to be able to hear our friends sitting across from us without yelling. Would love to go back but that put a damper on our experience. There are much better options without having to deal with a headache during a meal.

    I really don’t like writing negative reviews… I went here last night for my birthday as I really wanted Italian food, the prices seemed decent and the menu looked enticing. I shared the grilled calamari with my mom as an app and it was okay. I ordered the truffle mushroom fettuccine Alfredo as a main and was SO disappointed. It honestly tasted like one of those Michelenas microwaved meals that I used to eat in uni. Not worth $30. And the service was insulting. I came with my parents, they wanted to take me out for a nice dinner for my birthday, there were only three of us and we felt like we didn’t exist. I could clearly see that our server was much more concerned with her other tables (bigger parties, ordering lots of drinks - it’s almost as if she was strategic and planned to give us poorer service because she wanted to focus on where she could get the most tips - pretty gross). When we would finally get our servers attention, we would have more than one question/request bc we had been waiting so long, and she would literally turn her back and walk away before we were able to finish. Don’t worry, we tipped her accordingly (10%, and we almost never tip less than 20% - I used to work as a server and I know they rely on tips) I should have said something to the manager about the service and sent my food back, but at the time I didn’t want to cause any trouble. It did have a fun atmosphere but didn’t make up for the low quality of food. I really regret choosing this restaurant!

    I have visited in the pass for a few milestones and had no complaints, however last night, my experience was not at the same level . If this was my first time I definitely would not return as there are many great Italian restaurants in the Woodbridge area . The food was good , not so much the cocktails, we switched to a bottle but what made the evening distasteful was the level of service ! Poor , I felt obligated to give a tip, the service didn’t deserve one.

    Great food & great ambience… Excellent service. The only thing I wasn’t too keen on was the music… We were sitting close to the speaker, and it was very difficult to have a conversation with our friends - it was just way too loud.

    First time eating at Romano’s. Food was delicious!! My reservations were for 7:30 on a Friday. The music was sooo loud that I was unable to have a conversation with my Dad who was in town for one night visiting. He is hard of hearing and the loud music drowned out my voice!!! I was not going to yell over the music!!!! It was honestly very disappointing because after working all day with screaming kids at work last thing I wanted was more noise from music!! I’ve never been to an Italian restaurant that felt like a club at 7:30.!!!!!!!! Regarding the service, I had to ask for the cheese to be brought for my pasta! I had to go to the bar to see where my dad’s wine was. He had asked the guy who delivered the food for a glass and I guess he didn’t put the order in. It took a while to flag the waitress and then put order in. Would I return probably not. But the food was delicious!!

    We've been to Romano's quite a few times in the last six months and we've always enjoyed it. Last night we brought our brother and sister-in-law. The night started off great, the service was good and the food was delicious but then the DJ started with incredibly loud music. We saw at least three people go up to him and complain and conversation became next to impossible which was unfortunate. To top it off, our server dropped off dessert and coffee menus and we never saw her again so we would have ordered but didn't. Then we had to seek someone out to pay our bill so we could go somewhere else for coffee, dessert and to finish the conversation we had started. We will come back because we enjoy it but will make sure to leave well before the DJ comes on. Your restaurant is not a night club and every table around us was struggling to carry on a conversation. I know you lost our revenue for coffee and dessert - I wonder how many others left as well :(

    This was the second time coming here with my family and it has now become our favourite place to dine. The food is incredible, the service is friendly and on point. It is a little pricey but we understand it simply reflects costs. Great experience. Can’t wait until the next meal there.

    Food was exceptional, service was slow, but very good. Only reason we will not be returning is the noise factor. The music was so loud we couldn’t hold a conversation as we could not hear each other. It actually felt like we were in a night club … awful experience in that respect!!!
