What a nice surprise.

Last week, four of us went to Roma for dinner. We had heard that they recently renovated some of the restaurant. The new cocktail lounge/bar is magnificent and very updated for the area. We did not have reservations for dinner so we landed up getting a table in the bar. We were grateful that... read more

My wife and I stopped for lunch at Roma Italian Restaurant and left a bit disappointed. The parking lot was full at 12:00 noon but no one was in the dining room. Two big parties had the attention of the two waitresses. Service was slow. The draft beers were OK at $5 each. The salads were small and the cups... More

Amazing food. We love the salmon, caprese salad, veal, calamari, and good old fashioned spaghetti and meatballs...its all amazing. Service is spotty, but the food more than makes up for it. Wine list is great. Beer list is great. Full bar. Cozy booths make it a memorable evening.

We chose them because they had GF pasta. We were thrilled to learn their sauces were all GF as well. The food was exceptional. One member had the vodka sauce and thought it was without reservation the best vodka sauce she'd ever eaten. Terrific service. Reasonably priced.

Went here with my wife for date night. A little spendy and the food was good but I would choose olive garden over it. Then again if you want good Italian in Dover go to Franco's just up the street.

We are frequent and regular visitors to this place. This is the first visit since the renovations. First off reservations are now a must, regardless of day or time of day (we visited on a Friday afternoon around 4PM and they were turning people without reservations away). They removed the bar from the main dining area which made it feel... More

Let's just say... A diamond in the rough. I think they're in the midst of a renovation? That said...you'll really love this place and the prices. First night...eggplant Parmesan was scrumptious. The sauce...fantastic! Three nights later...went back...curious...this time...lasagna. I really liked it. The Pasta fagioli...lukewarm...but tasty. The oil/garlic bread dipping sauce...my wife went nuts for this! Caesar salad was good... More

Since we went early on a Friday evening we ere able to get a table, but we did notice that every single table had a reservation card on... More

Seems a bit of a buzz going on over there. Dinner was fantastic, service spot on & beverages very tasty. Seems as if there is new management going on. I was told they were building a lounge & new bathrooms. Can't wait to see...
