Southern EYE-Talian done VERY well.

I joke about the eye-talian part, but seriously, this is ROMA in the land of Bar-B-Que. We had an exceptionally large group and they were gracious enough to shut the doors for to the public that night. It was a limited menu for such a large group, but they limited it to everything I love. The... read more

My wife and I go to Cafe Roma often for lunch. They have the best vegetarian sandwich we have ever had and their sweet potato fries are from heaven. It gets crowed around 11:30.

The food is EXCELLENT. Me and 2 of my coworkers came here twice to eat. We were on a travel work assignment, and we didn't know much about the area. On our first visit, the waiter suggested something that had Salmon and pasta with a rich orange sauce. I forgot the name. It was so good I came back twice... More

Service and food were great. They were very accommodating in preparing dish requests from scratch that were not on the menu. A little pricy, but definitely worth it for a special occasion

I brought a business friend with me for dinner and we were not impressed. After reading some of the glowing reviews we were expecting a great Italian meal, but to the contrary it was not. Service was ok, not very attentive. Pasta was bland not very flavorful except for the heavy salt. I was expecting something special based on the... More

I tend to go to Café Roma when I have special guests or need someplace quiet to eat. I have never had a bad experience with the food or the service. For lunch, I tend to gravitate towards their soup and half sandwich. The tomato soup is some of the best I have ever had. Their chicken sandwich is my... More

I have eaten lunch here three times and each time was fantastic. The soup of the day is always great and the daily specials are very creative. Grilled Scallops with sauteed spinach, Pancetta and a delightful mushroom Ravioli. Old building, nice decor, great wait staff and reasonable prices.

We visited Cafe Roma for dinner while visiting the town of Cleveland, Tennessee. We were surprised and amazed to find such a good restaurant with a varied Italian menu, excellent service and fabulous food. It is a gem that the locals should be proud of.
