“Great service and greens”

Aquino's Family Restaurant
Ranked #8 of 85 Restaurants in Rome
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 July 2017

We were recently home for a wedding and went several times to Aquino's, our favorite Rome restaurant. It did not disappoint. Bartenders Sandy and Sarah, are attentive and make a great drink. Sarah loves wine and can make some good suggestions for customers. It was great to see Lynn, the owner and a lot of other people we knew. The greens are excellent and you can't go wrong ordering these. We also had some great fillets that were cooked perfect. If you like spicy food, the Sicilian potatoes are good too. Their pizza is also a good choice.

Although Aquino's is an Italian restaurant with wonderful Italian meals, we decided to try their Reuben sandwiches for St Patrick's Day. Terrific food served in a timely manner, hot, fresh and delicious. Waitress was friendly, efficient and helpful. Owner was terrific. A cheerful, comfortable atmosphere and prices were reasonable. We will definitely go back.

We've been wanting to visit based on the reviews and because it's locally owned. We stopped for dinner, sat in the dining area. The booth we sat in was very uncomfortable, no support left in the cushion. They could really use some updating. Service was mediocre, our waitress took our order, brought food but I had to ask for a refill of wine and water. I had veal piccata, the veal was over cooked and was saturated in sauce and capers. The Mr. ordered raviolis, he said they were bland. The cream of chicken and rice soup I had was very good though.

There are definitely better local dining options. We see no reason to return. Many of the reviews state they felt like family, that it is a warm and welcoming place. Our experience didn't represent that.
