We very much enjoyed our meals can't stop talking about how good they were! Started with warm bread to dip in olive oil. We followed by splitting spinach salad as did our friends, excellent.

It's rare that a restaurant fills every wish. Cafe Roma does just that. My wife had to work late and I didn't want to cook for myself so I asked a friend of mine if he wanted to eat out. We had both heard good things about Cafe Roma so we quickly decided to give Roma a try. As we... More

We came at 1:30 wondering if we would be rushed for lunch since the restaurant closes at 2:00. Quite the contrary. We were made to feel very welcome by all. The staff was attentive and kind. The food was wonderful and there were many items on the menu that sounded super good. We shared an arugula and beet salad that... More

Really loved everything. They had a new fall menu! We had the bruschetta and zucchini bisque soup. My veal and pancetta ravioli were wonderfully paired with sage and butternut squash. My husband loved the filet. Our waiter suggested a great bottle of wine and we finished off the evening with coffee and raspberry Carmel bread pudding. Wonderful meal. Wish we... More

Who knew there was such a great independent, creative restaurant in Cleveland? We were recently introduced to this gem by friends who really know Italian food and were wowed. I had delicious sausage cannelloni that was about as authentic as you can get and the hubs had pan-seared grouper with red pepper polenta that he refused to share. Lots of... More
