Okay, so it's not the best Italian ever, but given the choice of Olive Garden or Romano's, I'll choose Romano's any day of the week. I have two kids, and my husband and I have gone with the kids (great kid's menu) and alone on a date. We can't afford to go to expensive trendy restaurants, so Romano's is as romantic as it gets for us! We love it! The low lights create a great atmosphere, and although it can be loud, we enjoy it very much. I've never ordered something I didn't thoroughly enjoy, and their salad is yummy too. If you've got money to spend on an expensive restaurant, then you should probably skip out on Romano's. If you're on a budget, it's absolutely wonderful!
Pros: great food, family friendly, good for a date
Cons: loud, sometimes long wait
