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.

One of the best italian cuisines in Riyadh in terms of food, service and location. Best Pasta, Seafood Salad, lobster thermidor and Rissoto in Riyadh! Don't miss the Tomato Soup.

1st challenge was finding it! Food was really underwhelming. Slightly anaemic looking calamari and really poor pasta dishes - stodgy and with tasteless sauces. So at 50% more than our recent bill at Piatti, it was very poor value for money. Poorest of the 4 Italian Restaurats that we have tried to date in Riyadh. We won't be going again.... More

Real Italian food. above average price. Convenient environment. This place is one of the oldest Italian restaurants in Riyadh. The best thing about it is it's location. I really haven't seen many customers from young generations. It's like my special place when I meet one of my old friends. You just have to go there to know what I mean.
