We rarely go into Leicester at night to eat but agreed to meet here for a meal with friends. The staff are lovely and it was busy so there was a good atmosphere. However this is what I would call a cheap and cheerful eatery. The menu is mainly pasta and pizza with a limited specials board. There is also... More

I've eaten here many times while visiting Curve and keep coming back. The food is delicious and the home-made cakes are amazing. The staff are very freindly and helpful and the prices are very good. I would recommend a trip to Cafe Roma to anyone wanting a nice meal in a relaxed environment. Bring cash as they don't take cards.

We actually walked past the restaurant thinking it was a coffee shop. Further down the road on consulting trip adviser we came back. Busy atmosphere with quick service. Appeared to be family run with very good service providing well priced good food. Need to aware they don't accept credit cards but well worth crossing the road to the cash point... More

Popped into here for lunch from Curve. They do a lunchtime deal from 11.30 for about £6. You get a coffee/drink, garlic bread and a choice of about 10 pasta dishes. Can't beat it !

I've been enjoying the lunch special offer here for years, and as long as I work anywhere near it, I'm sure I'll carry on. Wonderfully cooked pasta, delicious sauces, gorgeous coffee, garlicky garlic bread and super friendly service in a cosy, cosmopolitan little place in the city centre, all for £6. Hurrah for Cafe Roma!

I've eaten here dozens of times over the years since my first visit around 1999, very good value authentic Italian food. Great service. As it is situated just off Gallowtree Gate, it's possible that it may not grab attention so easily, but there's no doubt its reputation allows it to thrive as it has for so many years.

Located off the main drag, this place is almost a part of Leicester, we remember coming here about 18 years ago. Obviously well known by locals with a steady stream popping in for a quick coffee, We wanted just a snack, My wife's pizza was barely hot, whilst my Panini was just perfect, Great coffee as expected, and half the...
