The only Italian in this restaurant was me ! The chef is Egyptian and waiters are all Filipinos. They are not really able to explain an Italian dish and I had to do it with foreign people who were dining with me. As far as I generally do not trust Italian restaurants abroad, I had fried calamaris as a starter... More

To some up how great of a food experience you can expect here, this restaurant has respectfully upheld its Al dente style. Though many locals prefer overcooked pasta, don't by shy about sounding your preference when ordering and you will be pleased. Try the Scaloppini, another favorite of mine.

Its one of my favourite restaurants in Riyadh. It always seems to impress me. They have a fresh bread basket that is served before your eat which is to die for. I highly recommend this place you will enjoy almost everything.

Roma is one of my favorite cities, it is truly an open sky museum. Everywhere you go you will find mindblowing monuments. Definately a place to spend summer !

Being an avid fan of Italian, I generally tend to enjoy anything that remotely resembles it, unfortunately that was not the case for Roma. Getting there is quite tricky, the restaurant has a tiny window pane on Musa Ibn Nusair st. not Olaya, and the entrance is from the back street, your best bet is to take an immediate right... More

This restaurant is my favorite in Riyadh, the food quality and food taste did not change since my first visit 12 years back. I recommend to try the cannelloni with four cheese or the egg plant with tomato sauce and cheese, but do not miss the lobster which is the best.
