About Roma Ristorante
Carmel, IN 46032
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. Italy is known for more than just the cuisine, which is why Roma also offers the finest Italian wines to compliment the food. Along with regular wine selections, a Reserve List is available for those wine enthusiasts with a taste for something special. Reservations are recommended.

Roma Ristorante Ratings and Reviews

It continues to improve. The service is good, the food is even better, the ambiance can use some improvement, but overall the place is quite enjoyable. I am hoping dinners in Carmel and surrounding areas will go there frequently and not just on weekends. As the restaurant becomes more profitable it also improves and this area needs privately owned restaurants.
Luccio, the owner/chef of this restaurant is quite talented, hard working and very committed to continues improvement.
Try it, you will like it.

the food at Roma is good and pretty consistent. Interesting combinations that change frequently. the front of house is not so good. several times including this time the wait staff seems less than friendly and this time didn't even introduce herself or welcome us despite my saying hello to her twice. The wine selection is good and fairly priced. the gelato was not so good despite high praise from the waitress.
i will return for the food.

I was looking for a new place to take my Mom for her 89th birthday . Roma did not disappoint! I asked for a quiet table and mentioned that this was a special occasion when I made the reservation. The hostess greeted my Mother with a "happy birthday" and there was a card waiting on the table. We were seated in a corner booth. Though the restaurant is not quiet, we had no trouble hearing each other during our meal. The food and the service were excellent. Each of us ordered a different meal and they were all perfectly prepared, beautifully served and delicious. The deserts were all good too! Roma is more expensive than the places we dine routinely, but it was well worth it. We will definitely go back.

Excellent Italian Restaurant in Carmel. Their $26 bottle of Merritt is excellent for the price and likely the cheapest.red.on the menu. Dried dates wrapped in bacon appetizer is sweet and delicious. Considered getting it again for dessert! Caesar salad was excellent and can get anchovies with if if desired. Seafood pasta - homemade pasta was excellent but only 1 large shrimp and bay scallops were small. Other entree of sweet sausage and pappardille pasta in cream sauce was excellent. Gelato was OK but not outstanding for an Italian restaurant. Attentive service.

Recommendation of this restaurant from a friend, skeptical at first judging from the outside façade of the restaurant but as soon as my date and I went inside we were pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere. The wait staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The good came out in a timely manner and was even more delicious than I had heard. Definitely will be coming back.

Thanks to other reviews of this restaurant, we made a reservation. So happy we did. Don't let the strip mall location fool you. Inside you will experience a quaint Italian restaurant. Great food, great service, and wonderful ambiance. House made pasta really does make a difference!

The most delicious gnocchi I have ever experienced: light, fluffy, authentic. The lamb chops were exquisite: perfect flavor and tenderness, plus the meal comes with a hearty serving. The service was timely and polite. This is the best Italian restaurant in Carmel. We will definitely go back.

Wonderful creative food and presentation, but not over the top like Emeril. Linguine with mussels was actually loaded with mussels (as promised by our waitress, Emily)...at least one with every bite...unusual for such a dish at other restaurants...as in never. Mussels were plump and tasty; as good as the ones we had on Prince Edward Island. Loved the food and service. Great experience. A bit pricey, but worth it.

For the most part, the reviews are an accurate reflection of Roma. We had our first visit to Roma on Saturday 10/29/16. The restaurant is well appointed with an Italian grandmother's home decor. Our hostess and server were both great. I ordered a salad and the bolognese, both were excellent. The pappardelle pasta was perfectly cooked and the bolognese sauce while not the best that I've tasted was certainly well prepared. The wine we ordered - was superb Piedmont region of Italy so not widely popular but excellent. It had a healthy markup on price - which is to be expected but 3X is a little healthy but the wine was at least something that was not as easy to get in Indiana. My wife ordered the pasta special but asked if she could have shrimp on the side. Our server who was very good let us know that the chef would refuse because in a traditional Italian meal the pasta course is not served with meat. I am not sure if that is true or not but it certainly made the reviews on the unaccommodating chef more believable. My wife did enjoy the pasta. We had the Tiramisu for dessert - very good. Overall - great food, great service but a little noisy and an unaccommodating chef. I am not sure if we would revisit.

Such a great find. It's tucked away at the end of a strip mall type place -- don't let that keep you from going. The food is amazing -- the chef comes out to make sure you're happy with your food. The wait staff is friendly and very attentive. Ambiance is great -- lights down lower and nice low-volume music playing.
I've been here twice with my wife and it's quickly moved up toward the top of our favorite places to eat in the area.

The restaurant itself was very nice, neat with a friendly atmosphere. Staff were very attentive and helpful with the menu.
Food was good, but prices very high for what you get. Entrees did not come with salad, very limited soft drink menu and typical Italian food items were not on the menu.
The cost was too much for the experience.

Always a great dinner at Roma. Signor Romani works hard to give you authentic Italian cuisine. The calamari appetizer is delicious, as are the bacon-wrapped prunes. Freshly-made pasta, yummy entrees, fabulous tiramisu...and terrific service. No wonder we keep going back!

This was our first time here and we enjoyed it. The chef visited our table to get a specific food request from our 13 yr old daughter and accommodated her with the meal she was looking for not offered on the menu. We will be back.

We had a delightful pre-theatre dinner here. The pork chop special (huge pork chop stuffed with spinach and cheese) was especially delicious; the wine list wasn't huge but had a nice selection at reasonable prices. Our server was forthright and attentive. We'll be back.
