Best Italian Food in San Clemente – Love this restraurant! As a long term resident of San Clemente I was pleasantly surprised by Romano's. The food is far better than similiar local italian restaurants. The staff is friendly, atmosphere relaxed. I recommend this restaurant to all my friends.
A Restaurant not to go to – This place has gone down hill. The waiter is rude and I asked for more coffee and never got it and he never came back to make sure everything was alright and he never brought us a check we had to go up to the register and he was there and never said a word, not sorry not anything. So I guess you know what his tip was. " 0" The man who use to run it was not there. I was very disappointed . If they don't shape up they won't make it. I know I'm not going back.
Prices never match the menu! – I have been eating here for a little over a year out of convenience and just noticed the last couple of times that they never charge the same thing. So, I looked at the menu and learned I was being charged an extra 3-5 bucks every time! When I complained, the guy told me I ordered 6 toppings on my pizza. Sure, I had 6 different toppings, 3 toppings on one half the pizza and 3 on the other half. When I was a teenager, I worked at 3 different pizza places and not one of them charged like that. Anyways, the pizza is a bit soggy and comes off a conveyor oven, so it isn't worth the price they are charging. The pasta is mediocre, nothing special. Sonny's Pizza in San Clemente beats the pants off these characters. Also, avoid this place on the weekends because they don't clear off the tables after people leave, so there are dirty dishes and flies everywhere. I have been in there a few times with my wife because she likes one of their salads and every table had dirty dishes on it. I think the place is run by the owner's son; he wears the same shirt every time I am there (black with thin white stripes) and needs a shave - you can miss him... he's the rude one. At least he matches the dirty tables. I have more stories about this guy, but the food isn't that great, this guy is rude and you will be overcharged - sound like a good night out to you? Oh you might like the free bread with marinara sauce, but that's about it. That's why they get two stars instead of one.
