My wife and I stopped here the first time for our anniversary because we had never been and it looked intriguing. A classic Italian restaurant is not something I'd say is typical for a town like Cleveland, TN. It was fairly empty, just us and another couple in there this visit, but it does get busier a little earlier and... More

We eat here about once every two months, it's one of our favorite places to go. Food is always excellent, a nice blend do flavor a that surprise the taste buds. Always start our meal with the fried green tomatoes, I never order appetizers anywhere but here. Staff are always courteous, and service is wonderful!

We had selected Cafe Roma for a lunch stop last week when heading to Ocoee for whitewater rafting. It was an excellent choice. We had the 3 cheese ravioli and the veggie sandwich. Both were very tasty. Since my husband can't ever turn down cheesecake we shared a piece of the ricotta cheesecake that had lemon curd with strawberries and... More

Incredible wait staff and superb food! Stayed in Cleveland for a week to celebrate my anniversary with my wife and this was by far the best place we ate the entire week!

Asked a local business to recommend a nice place for lunch when we were in Cleveland. They immediately directed us to Cafe Roma. The restaurant is located in a historic building in downtown. The dining is charming, brick walls, old wood ceiling, funky art on the walls. The real stars were our meals.

I gave this restaurant another chance, but I was not impressed. My pasta dish came out looking and tasting like canned Chef Boyardee from the grocery store. The restaurant has a quaint appeal but the hype about the food was not real on my day! Last chance failed.

I would give them a higher rating if I could. My family (15 person group) came here for a late dinner. Café Roma (and especially our server Beth) rose to the occasion with exceptional service and great food. People were arriving at different times, orders were all over the place, bills were split, the table was in good spirits but... More

3 of us ate lunch here not knowing what to expect. It is in an older building but is very comfortable. We ordered the mushroom appetizer and it was fabulous, then we shared an entrée of chicken, angel hair pasta and their pink sauce- it was amazing! The only negatives I have are the waitress was not friendly at all,... More

Fresh ingredients. Unique dishes. Appetizers are good. Try the bruschetta options. Have never had a pasta dish there I did not like. Quiet atmosphere.
