The only negative I would say is that the noise level is high in this restaurant. The ambience is great, and our server, Max, was excellent. Our two favorite entrées, the crab, scallops, mussels and shrimp special, and the fettuccine with sausage and mushrooms were superb! We will definitely return.
Wonderful Italian food and nice quiet setting. Excellent service.
Great service, wonderful atmosphere and authentic Italian food!
I ordered Trout which was a special, the waiter came back and it was no longer available. Why have a special, if you don't have enough of it? The food was barely eatable. Actually it was awful. I ordered a ravioli which was a special and it tasted a lot like paste inside, even the caesar salad had very little taste. NO thanks, will not be going back, and it was expensive with very small portions.
Excellent food! Only drawback is the choice of beverages. Put Diet Coke on the menu!
We have dined at Roma many, many times and we always enjoy the experience. The food and service are outstanding, plus there's plenty of free parking right outside the door! I particularly recommend the calamari and polenta appetizer. And the meatball entree is also delicious. We had 6:00 reservations and our server John made sure we finished in time for our 8:00 show at the Palladium. Roma is a great independent restaurant in Carmel. Give it your support!
Food was excellent. They had a nice wine selection. Good service. Will be going back again.
Took my daughters there for a daddy daughter date. It’s really not meant for kids, but they always treat us great despite my daughters being 7 and 8. The food is spectacular!
Maybe it was too loud to hear us, but the server brought wrong drink and appetizer. Our bill was wrong. (had an extra item that we didn’t order) I ordered Vongole. The pasta was good but the sauce was okay. My husband ordered a lamb dish. Asked to be cooked medium rare, but it was between medium and done. He said it had a great flavor.
Dinner with friends
Max was the perfect representative to propel the image of Roma to an elite experience! We will be back!
Food was amazing! Homemade pasta, you cannot beat that!
Our dinners were very good. All of us had the homemade pasta with different sauces. They were all very good. The wine is a bit pricey but went well with the pasta. Our desserts were very good. The chocolate lava cake with vanilla gelato was amazing. Nice little neighborhood Italian restaurant!
Great location with ample (and free) parking. Knowledgeable waiter and a very talented chef/owner who delivers each meal to the table himself. The handmade pasta dishes make it well worth the visit! The extensive wine list doesn't hurt either ;-)
Definitely looking forward to going back soon!
We had a wonderful dinner! The food was fantastic!
The food was delicious, albeit a little bit slow. The waiter told us everything was made custom daily, so I can forgive the speed of delivery. Everything was served piping hot!
We were in Indy for a soccer tournament and wanted a non-chain meal to celebrate a birthday. Our meals, service and ambiance were wonderful.
Good food, good service, right pricing. Quite loud though, difficult to have a normal conversation with a table of 4 people.
The food is absolutely fantastic and authentic! Everything is scratch made and they have an extensive wine collection. Expect a somewhat slower pace and enjoy the wine while you wait for your food. I am looking forward to returning soon.
Excellent experience. Food was way above average for an Italian restaurant in Indiana. Our waiter made every attempt to make us happy with each selection. I didn't like my Pinot Grigio, so he gladly exchanged for a Chardonnay.
So all in all, a real "find". Will return soon.
Very good in all respects ..... will return for sure.
One of the better restaurants in Indianapolis. Great food and outstanding service and ambiance. Highly recommended!
Food and wine were AMAZING. Close proximity and number of tables in a small space made for a lot of noise. Hard to carry on a conversation.
The food was not horrible but very overpriced for what we got. With the tip, it was nearly $100 for two entrees, a salad and two glasses of wine. The seafood linguine special was tasty but the shrimp was rubbery and the scallops were over cooked. I thought that, although the service was great and the atmosphere was pleasant, it was very overpriced.
While it was reminiscent of our trip to Assisi and Rome, the food had definite room to grow. At this price point, even in Carmel, we would expect an absolute copy of Italy. Wine was fantastic, and service was solid 4 stars.
Love to dine at Roma, my only complaint is the noise level
The shrimp are excellent
Great food and friendly staff! Will definitely be going back!
My husband and I had a wonderful time! We enjoyed the entire experience!
Great little place. Authentic and terrific food! I will definitely be coming back.
Fantastic food, fresh and original, great service. My only complaint is that it is a little loud.
Great date night spot. Delicious authentic Italian food and nice wine selection.
Another great dinner! Food was excellent as always.
The Cioppino special was wonderful- nice on a cool evening- would like to see it as a full time menu option. Roma was hopping- all tables full- always a great dining spot; relaxed dining before a Palladium event and any evening. Chef Lucio makes time to say hello to guests. Staff friendly; the right amount of time to be attentive to guests- they know the menu and can guide you with a wine selection.
My Russian wife feels that it's much more authentically Italian than other restaurants she's visited here in the States.
Long time Carmel residents and our first visit. A friend recommended it and she was right! The owner/chef met us at the door and seated us at a comfortable table. Our waitress took her time explaining the menu and wine list. She answered all of our questions and make helpful recommendations. The food was fresh and similar to the dishes we enjoyed in Rome last year. The wine was excellent but the deserts were superb! The owner has a gelato shop in Carmel and we enjoyed a pistachio that was smooth and creamy. Definitely will return and we are telling our family and business partners to try it.
Delicious food and attentive service. A perfect venue for our New Year's Eve meal.
My wife and I dined here on New Year's eve to experience the fixed menu four course dinner. The meal was outstanding!!! We come here often and have never been disappointed. Great ambiance and food to die for!
Wonderful experience! I highly recommend and cannot wait to return.
Loved it. One of our favorites and the best Italian in Indy.
Nice atmosphere. Great food. Authentic.
