This is a good place... – I've only been here once, but I like the food. I think we'll be back, as I know it's a goo place to bring the family...
Great pizza and pasta, avoid Friday evenings or special days like Valentine's Day – Ramone's has great Italian food. Their Basil Chicken in a white wine garlic sauce is excellent. Their calzone's are huge and the pizza is great too.
Avoid "rush hour" (i.e., Friday nights) and special holidays if you don't want to wait.
Sitting is a tad bit tight but it has you that much closer to kitchen breathing in all those awesome smells!
Said it before and I'll say it again – I grew up on the east coast and moved to Colorado at the age of 27.
Romano's is a horrible place to eat and the people leaving 5 star comments for a restaurant that doesn't even deserve 1 star no doubt grew up in Littleton and never left this town.
Now I tried a new Italian restaurant in the area called Michael's Italian Bistro and all I can say is "Now that's Italian."
I am not affiliated with them in the least but if you consider yourself a connoisseur of foods in any way, check them out on citysearch.
Best American- Italian pizza in Colorado hands down! – I have been eating there since1974, and the only restaurants that made/make pizza as good as John Romano makes is the old Marigold and even Bonnie Brae Tavern comes in second. And it has been consistently great the whole time. It is the best American- Italian pizza I have had in the U.S.!
An Amazing Neighborhood Family Restaurant – Romano's Italian Restaurant is a long time gem in the Littleton community. My family has dined at this charming restaurant for many years, and we have always had a delightful experience! The food is delicious - our favorites include the eggplant parmigiana and the wonderful variety of pizzas. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable, the service is always excellent. This is the perfect place to take friends or family for a wonderful meal.
NOT recommended – I hired Romano's to cater 2 lucheons for my child's school. The first one went off with out a hitch and was enjoyed by 2 tracks of teachers, the second was disasterous. 17 teachers were violently ill 36-48 hours after the luncheon. It was easy to narrow down the culprit because these teachers typically do not eat the same thing at the same time. The school was actually shut down early because there were not enough teachers to man the classrooms; an expensive cleaning team was brought in to disinfect the school as a precaution. The owners of Romano's not only denied any responsibilty (to the newspaper only) they never returned a phone call to the school or the PTA which sponsored the event. The PTA does fundraiser that parents contribute to to do these events and this one cost $600. The school district spent thousands in substitues and the cleaning crew. Having spent 15 years in food industry I understand that bad experiences happen - it is was happens next that shows the character of the establishment and it's owners. This is a restaurant in OUR neighborhood and we were not treated very neighborly. Thank you for your time in reading this.
Wonderful Long Island style Italian food – I spent 21 years of my life on Long Island NY, and believe me, this place is the real deal! No pretension, reasonable prices, and extremely good food. I can think of any number of resturaunts in the Denver area that claim to have NY style Italian food, but this is the only place that fits the bill. The veal and chicken parmesian are both wonderful. The tomato sauce is excellent, and the homemade pasta is simply divine. Both the kitchen and the waitstaff are quick, friendly and efficient, but you won't feel hurried. They also have a good selection of Italian wines at reasonable prices. This place is definitely worth a visit if you want to see how its really done on Long Island; bring your appetite!
Best of the best – I remember when this wonderful restaurant opened! Almost 40 years ago!!!! If you have not visited, it is worth the trip! It truly is a hidden gem, and now another location in Highlands Ranch!
There's nothing like it anywhere! – Romano's is the best of the best. The atmosphere is family oriented, warm, friendly, and inviting. The food can't be beat. Forget the expensive chain restaurants. Those places charge for atmosphere and provide no quality of food. Romano's provides not only atmosphere but the most delicious Italian food anywhere. Their homemade sauces and salad dressing cannot be beat. The bread is always fresh and warm and the staff is wonderful. The prices are affordable and definately worth paying for such high quality. Romano's is the best place in Colorado, or anywhere as far as I'm concerned.
Pleasantly Surprised! – My husband and I are relatively new to Littleton and have tried most of the restaurants within a 5 mile radius of our house. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a tasty Italian joint with good food. I had a baked pasta with italian sausage that was a generous serving and every bite went down with pleasure. My husband had a calzone and he enjoyed it into the next day. It's a little spendy, but helpings are large. The calzone was good because usually calzones are mostly dough with a little food in the middle, this one was mostly goods with a normal amount of crust - just right. We will go back again and again when we are in the mood for home cooked Italian.
