Terrible cuisine

Just left the so called restaurant where my son wanted to have his birthday. I have never tasted a steak as bad!!! My fellow diners also were unhappy with the meal.I asked the waiter if he was sure I was served fillet steak and he told me he would show me the bag!!! I rest my case.

Delightful little restaurant. We booked this early Saturday morning to have meal at 7:30. Don't be put off by the exterior and entrance - going through two doors one of which has sign on to press the bell for the accountant! The staff were so friendly. The place was ram packed with not a spare seat in the place. Seats... More

Visited Roma on 14th February 2015 with friends, not because it was valentine's day, but this came highly recommended on TA and we were looking for a good restaurant near to the theatre. Roma is a beautiful little charming and intimate restaurant, the staff incredibly friendly without being overbearing and the food wonderfully prepared and of the highest quality. As... More

Booked this purely because it was rated so highly on TripAdvisor. As usual, TA did not let me down! This is a lovely, intimate restaurant with CHARACTER - so much nicer than those big, faceless chains, in my opinion. The service was attentive and friendly, without being "too much". The food was fresh and delicious. Even better, there is a... More

Visited Roma on Saturday 31st January 2015 and all I can say is Awesome. We booked a table for two and from walking through the door to leaving was a complete enjoyment. The starters were beautiful and if you love seafood try the mussels. My wife had pate and steak for her main and I had mussels and seafood spaghetti.... More

We visited the restaurant as a large party for a meal in January and could not of been more welcomed. It is always difficult for a restaurant to accommodate a large party and they did it superbly. There was no delays or mix up with any of the orders and all off the food was beautiful. All of the staff... More

Came here with my girlfriend the Sunday after Christmas for a quiet Sunday night meal. Perfect, everything about it. From the warm welcome, to the starters, to the drinks, to both mains! Absolutely delicious food in a great little Italian. Will definitely be back.

We wanted to go to the restaurant rated one better than Roma in Sunderland, but it was full. Glad it was, as this place is the business. Great atmosphere, attentive owner and staff. Excellent food too. Now top of our list when in Sunderland. Roll on our next Saturday shopping trip followed by lunch here. Smashing.
