A very pleasant surprise!

I really like this place! Simple, fresh Italian food not from the freezer. The calamari was very good. Not chewy and served with a side of tasty red sauce for dipping. The pizza was perfectly cooked with REAL cheese. That's a big deal to me. The crust was chewy with a nice crunch. Loved it... read more

We love this place. Although it is not fancy by any means, the food is always an adequate size and delicious! We have catered their Lasagna for family events a few times.

This is how Italian cooking should be! Sauces are absolutely fantastic. Everything is home made here and they use no garlic on the sauces and no ricotta on lasagna just how it should be! Place is simple, not big but the food is fantastic. Staff is really friendly and I do disagree with all the other reviews saying the opposite.... More

I love this restaurant. It's my 'go to' place when I want a great meal but not pay huge bucks. Their spaghetti and meatballs is the best in town in my opinion and everything I've gotten there has been excellent. The staff is very friendly and the service is good. The building the restaurant is in is old but well... More

A small place with great Italian food. Prices are good and portions are generous. The owner is from Italy and you can taste the old world flavors in every dish. Haven't had a bad meal yet, some of my favorites are the Lasagna, Veal & Chicken Parm. and the meatballs. They also cater and have a small party room.

This restaurant if worth the trip over to the West side of Cleveland, even if you are an Eastsider. The food is far better than most higher priced establishments. This is the reason Caffe Roma has received awesome reviews here and other sites. All menu items we have tried have exceeded our expectations. Prices are very fair and we will... More
