Food was very good the only problem was the slow service which was understandable considering the restaurant was short of staff which seems to be the norm these days
Otherwise very enjoyable

Our server was very nice. Appetizers arrived in a timely manner and were good. We then waited an hour for entree to arrive. When it did arrive all 3 dishes were lukewarm.

Tito was great, we enjoyed ourselves very much. Will definitely go back. Took a little too long to get the check and pay - everything else was super.

This was one of the best Italian meals we have had in the states. Our server Rebecca was outstanding and extremely pleasant. Will return very soon. Veal chop parm was spot on.

We’ve been to Aroma many times since it is been such a great dining experience. Food was very good aside from from the veal chop which was a bit over-seared and was a little dry. But it was a busy Saturday so we waited awhile for entrees. The lobster ravioli special was delicious. We were so pleased with having Becky as our server once again; she is very attentive and accommodating. Still a great place but I’d recommend going on weekdays to avoid the crowds.

The food is very good and our server was courteous and apologetic as our entrees came out over two hours after seated at our table. This is unacceptable from this restaurant and although we were told a few times the manager was going to come over to our table, it never happened. Beware this could happen if you dine there.

We were seated in a quiet location as I'd requested. The outdoor seating was very crowded and we were inside.
We all enjoyed our food-a Caprese salad and three different preparations of veal dishes. The pomodoro sauce is delicious.
But, the service was very slow and we heard other tables complaining about the same issue. They acknowledged the situation, saying they didn't expect such a large crowd the week after Labor Day. They were short-staffed for sure.
We will certainly return, but wait until later in the fall when there are fewer customers in the Shore area.

This is the 5th or 6th time this year that my wife and I have been to Aroma, each time we have brought different friends and everyone has said how much they enjoyed the food and Service that we received. The only complaint that I can say I may have is the lack of Pasta in my dish. I feel that there should never be a lack of something like pasta. This last time we were there I ordered the Chicken Aroma, It was excellent and more than enough food for a BIG eater like myself, All the more reason why i cant understand the pasta dish. I love the restaurant and we will definitely keep coming back.
p.s. The Veal dishes are EXCELLENT.
Thank you , Mike T.

We had a 7:30 reservation and we’re not seated until 8:00. As they had no bar all we could do is stand outside for the half hour.

The food was okay but overpriced for what you got.

Enjoyed our meal tremendously. Couples shared salads, pasta, entrees, and deserts. Service was leisurely, so we had time to talk and enjoy each course. All of the food was excellent. Especially enjoyed gnocchi as our pasta course.

Had a great dinner at Aroma. Sat outside for a 7 pm dinner on a Monday evening. Restaurant was very nice and there definitely were people in and outside. The service was great and our waitress was knowledge and helpful We started with the Frito misto it was very good. Calamari was tender and sauce so good. My husband liked the shrimp there were three big ones added. Then for dinner I had the bologese it was very flavorful and thick. So good but filling. My husband had the veal aroma with crab meat he enjoyed it and said it was a big portion. They also serve this dish with chicken. The menu has a big variety of pastas, meats, chicken, and fish. There was also a decent selection of desserts but we were too full. Maybe next time. I will definitely go back when in the area. Please note it's a bring your own which we did and cash only. Great evening outside.

Love the food in this casual restaurant that has outdoor and indoor seating. There is music on the weekends which was a little bit too loud, but lovely nevertheless.

Dined here for the first time since it changed hands a few years ago. I had the Short Ribs and my wife had he Chicken Aroma. Both meals were excellent, arrived hot and perfectly prepared. Can't say enough about how good our experience was. Will definitely be back on a regular basis!

We ordered the antipasto & it was pretty good. The strawberries were a nice refresher. For dinner we ordered one of their specials-the seafood stew-it was a great portion size for 2 not too overwhelming. Yes I recommend for a nice dinner out.

It was excellent! The homemade tortellini was magical with the Alfredo, chicken cooked perfectly. I could not finish it, it was so much pasta. Had it the next day, and it was just as good. Great ambiance, great service. Will be back when in Atlantic City again.
