I really was craving Italian food and so I headed here to Piccola Roma Palace. The owner is very hands-on, leading me to my table, taking my order and helping others decide what to order. I got the white wine, which was nice; it was a dry Cabernet Sauvignon. My main dish was the penne with four cheeses. It was... More

We had a good meal here the food was ok but nothing exceptional. The head man enjoys engaging with the customers but it still lacked a bit of atmosphere. The price was also reasonable. Would I eat here again, yes would I rush back no.

Do not pass by this restaurant! Angelo Faro and his staff produce splendid Italian food at good prices in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. There are clearly a large number of regular visitors known to Angelo and after our third visit, we felt more than part of the family!
