About Roma Ristorante
Welcome to Roma's Ristorante. The food at Roma’s is an interesting blend of both traditional and innovative Italian cuisine and serves the freshest ingredients possible, many imported directly from Italy. Executive Chef, Lucio Romani, takes great pride in his homemade sauces and his ability to acquire the freshest ingrediants available. Each course is made to order and requires accurate preparation time. Roma is a slow-dining establishment; so come for romance, or for an important business dinner. Roma will accommodate private dining with prix-fixe menus for any special occasion.

Roma Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
From fresh fish to fresh handmade pasta ...
From fresh fish to fresh handmade pasta to homemade gelato and cannolis - the quality of the food is amazing! The location, decor, and acoustics make this more of a fun casual place than a romantic date night setting.

Have eaten here many times and never had a bad meal. Recently, the pasta with beef filet and salmon in a pistachio crust were both excellent entrees. And the gelato is delicious. The service at Roma has always been good; Paula took great care of us. Portions at Roma are not huge -- but we always leave feeling full. This is not chain restaurant dining.

Wow! The lamb and swordfish were out of this world. We came for a special occasion--birthday--but the food was so good I could see us eating here all of the time. Super ambiance and service as well. Don't skip the gelato.

I love going back to this restaurant! You never know when the chef will pop out to greet you. And the food is very special! Last time, my date had pasta with sweet Italian sausage, porchini mushrooms and spinach in a light cream sauce. He loved it! I had gnocchi with red sauce and crushed almonds. It was fabulous! We will return! Next time: gelato!

Good neighborhood eatery. Friendly staff. Greeter was quite hospitable. Service was too slow; restaurant had a good but manageable crowd. So wait service should have been quicker.
Pasta is home made and really wonderful. That is a plus.
We ordered the burratta bruschetta appetizer - but the portion was quite small . Not enough bread. One entree - the seafood pasta chef special - barely had seafood, and I have ordered that meal all around the country. That is not acceptable. Having said that, we would return. I travel enough so everyone deserves a second chance.

Intimate, nicely decorated, authentic Italian fare suitable for a special occasion, but affordable enough for a quick bite on the spur of the moment. Wait staff is friendly, attentive, helpful. Wide selection of entrees and wines. We've had many different dishes and have never been disappointed.

Just happened to discover Roma while running errands. It had good reviews so we gave it a try. Took the family (adult children) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The home made pasta was very good. All of the sauces were flavorful and well balanced. The server was friendly and took time to explain the menu and other options. The atmosphere is quiet, and tucked away in the back of Monon Square shopping center. We plan to eat there again in the future.

Food was very good and of high quality. Service was attentive and not overly intrusive.
The décor and noise could use a little work. Rate the food very high, less so on the ambiance.
The service was excellent, as was the at ...
The service was excellent, as was the attitude of the staff. The hostess greeting us was very pleasant and friendly. And the chef came out to our table to ask how we enjoyed the meal. The food (the pasta bolognese and trout dish)was excellent as well. There are two potential negatives, however. One would be that they do not serve hard liquor (beer/wine only), but I knew that going in, so it was not an issue for me, but may be for someone else. The second, which had more of an impact, is the noise level/acoustics. The place was about 1/2 occupied, and it was so loud/noisy, that I had difficulty hearing my companion across the table.
Our new favorite Italian restaurant!
What a find! The pasta is prepared by a genuine Italian chef in the kitchens daily, and the desserts and bread are also made on the premises. The Tortino al Salmone appetizer was
outstanding. We enjoyed two pasta dishes, the Gorgonzola Funchi e Tartufo and the Zucchine e Vongole. Italian cuisine is our favorite, but our meals at Roma Ristorante were unlike any
that we've had before. Our service was excellent, and the chef frequently visited with the guests. We will definitely return, and look forward to trying other items on the menu!
Found this place when visiting soho cafe came back for dinner a couple weeks later. So glad we did. Lovely locally owned place with chef/owner on site. Food was delicious, new takes on classics (filet in a sauce over gnocchi...amazing!). Definitely worth checking out for dates and

This is a great place. It is as good as many restaurants in Italy. It is not a speghetti and meatball place or for young kids. If you want authentic Italian food done with fresh ingredients, this is the place. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. The Chef makes the rounds to make sure you are pleased with your meal. Wine list is good and not overpriced. Enjoy!

I only gave 3 stars for overall because one of my guests wanted to substitute pasta for potatoes and the server informed us that the chef never substitutes. In my opinion that isn't very customer friendly. Might be the reason we hesitate to return.
