We stumbled across this restaurant (a little hard to find) behind I believe the Marriott hotel. The decor was really nice and my wife thought it was very romantic. The food was a bit high priced but very good. The best thing about this restaurant was the service. By far the best in all of Panama City's restaurants or at... More

Although this restaurant has been around for several years, this was mt first visit. It's located just behind the Marriott hotel and close to other hotels. Menu is varied and includes a large steak section. Two appitizers that I liked were whole portobelo mushroom broiled with swiss cheese and a warm brie with honey and walnuts; homemade gnocci were also... More

I was travelling around Bella Vista looking for somewhere to enjoy lunch and had been disappointed in the menus of many restaurants. Then I came across the Roma Antica, a small but stylish place with good wine and good food. The staff did not speak english very well but it was a delight to have one of the guests who... More

The tortelloni greco romana were just incredibly delicious, it is the best dish I have ever tasted in Panama! The atmosphere & location of the restaurant are excellent. I was just disappointed with the service: only one waitress was able to tell me what is a piadina or fontina (after asking 3 other waitresses who had no clue).

The other Friday I got out late from the office and we decided to try Roma Antica. We arrived at 8.45pm and almost all tables were occupied, mostly by locals. When I go to an Italian restaurant for the first time and they offer Ossobuco... that's what I'll have. My wife ordered the same. Big mistake. We love the dish... More

We'd heard some good things about the food here and decided to go check it out on a Thursday night. The restaurant was pretty empty and that should have tipped us off, but we went ahead and ordered wine and appetizers. The wine list seemed great and options for wine by the glass were also very decent. But the food... More
