One of our favorite places to eat. We missed it last year (only year we have missed) and refused to miss out again! The atmosphere is so fun, and they even have a fresh flower on every table. The accordion player happened to be on vacation, so we missed out on them. I got the chicken ripieno – delicious! Corey got his favorite, the lasagna with ham and a boiled egg. Nolan had spaghetti, and Morgan even tried some of his for the first time! They always serve warm rolls with dipping sauce, wedding soup (delicious), bruschetta and salad. The service was great. The waiter we had this time was actually the one we had 2 years ago, so it was fun seeing him again. That is one of their best attributes – the train their staff very well. The chef is so sweet. He always comes around to every table asking how it was. This time, he brought around a try of fresh fig for his guests to try. We had never tried one so gave it a go. While it wasn’t my favorite thing in the world, I thought it was so cool I got to try one and that they just brought them around complimentary. Always a wonderful time at Villa Romana!

Villa Romano has always been a favorite. I don't hesitate to recommend it because we've never had a bad meal there, nor have I heard complaints. Thanks for this review!

I can easily say that out of all the restaurants we eat at when we're down at the beach, everyone always looks forward to this restaurant the most. We made a reservation for 5:30 pm and were seated promptly. The restaurant was about half full. Our server came over quickly, introduced herself and told us about the specials. We started off with the bruschetta, which we gobbled up. My mom and I joke that this is the only time my dad will ever eat chunks of tomatoes since he normally picks them out of everything. He can't resist! It's just that good. Next we had the warm bread and red sauce, which is always delicious. The soup and salad was delicious as well. I swear, I could eat a whole vat of that soup. For our entrees, I ordered the fettucine with chicken. My dad ordered the Cotolette All Milanese, which is lightly breaded veal cutlets, fresh greens, shaved parmigiano cheese. My mom ordered the Chicken Parmigiana which is breaded chicken filet topped with tomato sauce and cheese.

Everything we ate was fresh and delectable. Franca (owner) came over to ask how everything was. We chatted for a bit before her husband and executive chef Rinaldo came to our table. We gave our compliments to the chef. We've never had a bad meal here. The food is consistent year after year.

It's never a trip to Myrtle Beach without a visit to Villa Romana. The service is always top notch. You're never rushed. The courses are paced perfectly. The food is excellent. We've never had a bad meal or dish here. The owner always takes time to come to our table, tell us about the food and thank us for coming. The staff and the owners truly care that you're dining with them. The accordion player is hilarious and can play anything you ask him to. He'll go from table to table taking, telling jokes, and playing songs.

On this particular trip, we dined here twice. You're given four courses before your main entree arrives: tomato bruschetta (excellent), rolls and sauce (divine!), Stracciatella soup (yummy), and a fresh side salad. On our first trip, my dad ordered the Lobster Ravioli and Cold Water Sea Scallops (lobster stuff ravioli adorned with seafood a la vodka sauce with jumbo lump crab and scallops) with a side of spaghetti. My mom ordered the Filet Mignon with mushrooms and sauce, fries, and side spaghetti. I ordered the Chicken Ripieno (breaded chicken breast stuffed with ham and cheese, flamed in white wine) with a side of spaghetti. On our second trip, I ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. My dad ordered the Veal Caesar (twin breaded veal cutlets topped with asparagus in a white Absolute Vodka cream sauce and jumbo lump crab meat) with a side of fries, and my mom ordered the Filet Mignon with mushrooms and sauce, fries, and side spaghetti. Every single meal was perfect. The meats were cooked to our liking, the vegetables were fresh and the sauces weren't too heavy. The food is consistently great. We had no complaints.

Ask for Tim as your server! He is excellent and always takes care of us.

Ive always wanted to try this. We usually only eat Italian once and have gotten into a routine of going to Maggie D's. Might have to switch it up this year. How long is the in-season wait time?

Complimentary Bruschetta - Great as always

Image
Cold Appetizer (hard Genoa salami, artichoke hearts, Calamata olives, mozzarella, provolone) - We ate everything but the artichoke hearts

Image
Rolls and marinara sauce - Warm and fresh

Image
Stracciatella soup - So good!

Image
Salad - Good

Image
Chicken Parmesan, Veal Parmesan with veggies and spaghetti - Loved it

Image
Chicken Parmesan with veggies (comes with spaghetti) - Loved it

Image
Chicken Ripieno (chicken breast stuffed with ham and cheese, white wine) with veggies and spaghetti - Liked it, but felt it was drowning in sauce. The sauce was delicious, but I just felt there was way too much

Image
Cannolis - Delicious


My parents found a coupon in the local paper: Dinner for 2 for $34 (they also had the coupon on their website but you have to print it out). Click here for the promotional coupon. It's a 5 course dinner that includes a cold plate appetizer, soup, salad, and mini cannolis. You choose any two entrees from the menu (specials NOT included) and you must purchase 2 beverages (soda and tea is fine).

We made a reservation for 5:30pm on a Thursday. The restaurant was pretty packed. We were seated immediately. We were taken to a table in a corner to the right. The table was close to the others around it. We asked to be moved elsewhere but the young woman seating us told us she couldn't because she didn't know if the 4 open tables were reserved by anyone. (About 15 minutes later, here comes a large party and their seats were right up against ours!)

Will we return? Absolutely! This is our favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach. Service was great. We never had to wait for dishes to be cleared or for refills. The service and food have always been top notch. The chef or his wife almost always comes out during every service to chat and ask how you're doing. That shows you they care.
