My grandparents ate here in the late 40's and I'm glad to continue the tradition. Everything is fresh and delicious, be sure to get the eggplant Florentine if it's on special. For those in southern Delaware, they have the "Beach Express", delivering to Rehoboth Beach every Thursday!! Just call in the order!! Whenever I'm passing Wilmington, Mrs. Robino's is my... More

I have been coming here for just about 50 years. Hard to believe. We've come here for celebrations, date nights, family get together;s, as long as I can remember. I even used to bring my high school dates here. The food is always consistent and reasonably priced. It's like walking into the past. Much hasn't changed over the years. I... More

Mrs. Ronino's is old-school Italian food in an old-school Italian environment... to me, it's a place you go to relax over a huge plate of comfort food. I think their meatball is the best I've ever had at a restaurant, and my advice would be to order an extra one. Gnocchis were perfectly cooked, huge piece of veal, tour of... More

We had the sausage/meatball appetizer, chopped salad, spaghetti and meatball, porkette with broccoli rabe and mashed potatoes, and the chicken and broccoli alfredo. Spaghetti was ordinary but everything else was very good. The portions are huge so prepare to bring home leftovers. We also had a lovely, attentive waitress

Been coming here for I don't know how many years, had lunch here, dinner here, and celebrated a number of birthdays here. I keep telling myself I'm going to try other things on the menu, but I always wind up with their lasagna.... with a meatball on the side. Love their meatballs... if you come in for lunch, treat yourself... More

I found this place in advance. My wife & I walked here our first night, about 1.5 miles. Had veal parm and she had chicken parm. Both were excellent. Reasonably priced too. I took off 1 star because the spaghetti was not al dente. It was overcooked and soggy. So I just ate small amounts to compliment my veal parm.... More

Was in Wilmington for a show and found this gem. The pasta here was some of the best I've ever had outside of Italy or homemade in my own kitchen. I could actually smell the fresh eggs and flour as I was eating it. The portions were huge, especially considering how reasonable the prices were! Try the Tour of Italy... More

On a recent Tuesday evening, my husband, adult son, and I decided to pay a visit to Mrs. Robino's for dinner.
