Tried the cafe for the first time for lunch. Had a great range of vegetarian choices, I had a panini and my other half had spaghetti bolognese. Very reasonably priced food and drink, and the atmosphere was relaxing. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. A few of the customers seemed to be regulars judging from the way they knew the...

Both of us really enjoyed our meals of pasta, one meat eater and one vegetarian. The service and attention to detail was great - we really felt valued customers. I had not realised that there was an offer for a hot drink included with our lunch but the lady informed me about this when I ordered. Only one problem -... More

We have been to a lot of restaurants in Leicester, but somehow overlooked this place until last week. We did not want to visit a 'chain' we wanted some real food & having checked trip advisor for our own home town this restaurant seemed to fit the bill location wise. It is very close to the Curve & not far... More

The outside may be a little off putting but the food in this little cafe is exceptionally good. Freshly made, it tastes like Italian home cooking. A wide variety of pastas and pizzas, meat and vegetarian dishes. There is a very reasonably priced lunch and a great evening menu. It is simply lovely. Good family run welcoming cafe.

We have eaten at Cafe Roma several times during its evening opening hours. The food is tasty, authentically Italian and prepared from fresh ingredients. It's all cooked from scratch - we often ask for slight variations (e.g more garlic, or less bacon) and it is never any trouble, because the food is not all pre-prepared. The service is friendly and... More

This looks from the outside like a little run down cafe. It isn't. This is an authentic Italian restaurant run by a very lovely family. The pizza is reminiscent of home made pizza we have eaten in Italy. The pasta is fresh, the sauces very good. There is a very reasonable lunch price and an evening menu also. The chicken... More

Had a really nice lunch here. Staff were really friendly, and the whole atmosphere of the restaurant was friendly and busy. Prices pretty good value. Ordering and paying for the food and drinks at the counter was efficient. The food was very tasty and well cooked. I had a vegetarian lasagne which tasted very fresh and was filling, but didn't...
