We had a fantastic waitress who certainly wasn't shy about her favorite recommendations. All the food here is well prepared and very reasonably priced. My wife had the tortellini and there was enough for 2 servings. I had the Lobster Pescatore which was loaded with seafood. Comes with lobster tail, shrimp, scallops over pasta. Great sauce. Drinks were very good.... More

We were staying nearby and found this place on Trip Advisor...Glad we did. The food is excellent!!! The service is tops. It is a nondescript place in a strip shopping center but, well worth a visit!!!!!!

Good Italian food. I've visited Roma a few times. The food is generally good. Nothing outstanding. Best menu item I've tried so far was the scallops with asparagus risotto. Kids meals are a little pricy at $9 for spaghetti with one meatball. Ambience is decent. Nice for a place stuck in a strip mall next to Game Stop. Their reservations... More

A local hotel recommend this place during a recent business trip and what a pleasant surprise. Although this locally owned resturant is located in an unattractive mall, this place is a gem and well worth a visit. Everything is homemade and the sauces have a nice flare. Try the stuffed shrimp with Lemoncello sauce - lemon and a little sweetness... More

Italian restaurants are ubiquitous and often disappointing, but this little gem stands out from the crowd. Unusual and diverse entrees, nice ambiance--just quiet enough and just dimmed enough to feel private without feeling pretentious--and an owner who visited our table, which is always a plus. Food was excellent and presented beautifully. Less than impressed with our server, who was efficient... More

Grabbed lunch here with a business colleague the other day and it was delicious. The wait staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I got a Cesar salad and ravioli sand it was delicious. Would completely recommend this for business or date night.

Revisited Roma on Saturday for my third visit. They continue to amaze us with their consistency. The meal starts off with the best bread around. Salads are very good, and the food is served piping hot, and the pasta is prepared perfectly. They accomadated my wife with a special dish of Chicken Fra Diavolo, and I had the menu listed... More

You can never go wrong when visiting Roma Ristorante. Service is always good and the food is always delicious. I've been here a few times and every time I go back I wonder what takes me so long to get back there. Good to see you Joe. Keep up the great work.

This place is top notch; we knew the moment we walked in. Friday night vibe at the bar and in the restaurant. Hot Tuscan bread started things, and a great salmon dish and eggplant appetizer followed exceptional salads. This is a great find.
