After vacationing last year in Italy it was hard to decide where I could find REAL Italain food. Come to find out Romeo Cucina is actually run by a southern Italian family with real-Italian chefs!! I must say I was still skeptical after

I had my wedding dinner at Romeo's. We were a small party of 12. The owner and the staff were wonderful and treated us like family. The food was delicious and the restaurant was beautiful. There was live music and the singer even took requests. I coud not have asked for a better dining experience for my wedding dinner. Thank you Romeo Cucina!

I went there on a dinner date prior to seeing Pageant of the Masters. The service was excellent. I didn't have to ask once to have my cup refilled and my dish which was a Penne with an olive oil based sauce with chicken breast was delicous and brought out quickly. The bread is excellent. Please dip in the olive oil mixed with balsamic vinegar and a little salt. Yum!

Next time I want to try the pizza.

My girlfriend and I had reservations to go to Las Brisas for her birthday dinner - but as we walked by this place, we were lured in by the smell - and they were able to seat us right away, so we decided on a last minute change of plans.

Big mistake.

The server - Bryan - literally made his entrance by giving us a dirty look and clearing his throat due to the fact that we had our menus open and he couldn't readily set the bread plates down. I kid you not. He then sat the plates down and walked away - I assumed he was a bus-boy, but when he appeared 5 minutes later and said "What can I get you to drink?" (No hello, no introduction, nothing) I deduced we were stuck with him. The service didn't get any better - it took me 25 minutes to get a glass of water, 40 minutes for our salad, and 60 minutes for our pizza. As a former server myself, I am an extremely generous tipper - but not for Bryan. As we were ignored, I saw him litereally standing there having in depth conversations with the tables that were drinking bottles of wine. Can you say tip pandering? That douche deserved the 5% tip I left him.

The pizza was by no means worth $15. My girlfriend got one with some feta cheese and other good stuff on there, and I got one with chicken on there. Mine was a 1 star pizza, hers was a 3 star pizza. By the time you got our $10 salad on there and a glass of lemonade for her, you were up to a $50 meal, which is completely ridiculous.

Don't be lured in by the smell (as we were) or these other reviews - this restaurant is NOT worth your time. Avoid.

I was surprised to read the poor reviews. I've eaten dinner at Romeo Cucina a dozen times and never been disappointed. Most recently, we met friends before Pageant of the Masters. Even though they were busy, the host prompted seated us. No sooner were we seated, then warm hearty bread, olive spread, yummy, and water were delivered to our table. My salmon pasta was outstanding, as was my ceasar salad. My husband loved his 4-cheese pizza, warm from the pizza oven. Our friends enjoyed their meals and the service too!

What can I say, we're locals and we know where the good places are to eat. Cucina's has a rep of high priced poor food but it's been years since we've been. Service was terrible, took 15 minutes on a slow saturday evening for us to get a waiter to come by. My wife said the restroom was filthy dirty, wine was old and flat. So when the caesar salad came with no dressing and just cheese on top, we told the waiter we'd had enough already and left. He didn't seem very disturbed.

Don't go here!!!

When we arrived in search of delicious pizza, we knew at once that we would be disappointed. Friday night in downtown Laguna Beach and this place was as empty as a graveyard at midnight.

The appetizer (a stuffed artichoke) came out mushy, tasteless and cold in the center. The minestrone soup was similarly tasteless.

The pizza had an OK crust, but the sauce was mediocre and the "wild mushrooms" seemed to be button mushrooms chopped up small.

The olive spread with the bread was the high point of the evening.

Overall, I will probably not go back to Romeo Cucina. Price was far above the quality of the food and service, and the atmosphere negated what limited good there was in the food.
