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.

My husband and I heard about this place from a local and we were glad we listened. Super nice staff! Pretty decent italian food & great ambience. Only negative was the water in the ladies room sink, when you wash your hands take note - the water gets EXTREMELY HOT almost instantly. Happy eating!!!

Went for a late lunch. Keep in mind they close at 2:00 and reopen at 5:00 for dinner. Had the Chicken Parmigiana. It was served on a bed of angel hair pasta that was lightly seasoned with olive oil and garlic. It was very good. I have had some nasty fake Italian food and I have had the real thing...This... More

We walked in thinking it was a pizza joint and were pleasantly disappointed as we shifted our palate to choose from their very interesting offerings.....I had the ravioli and my usually unimpressed boyfriend chose the angel hair pasta with pancetta. Our food was phenomenal. For dessert we had the bread pudding and we died and went to heaven. The only... More

Went for an early dinner, which was great, before going to see a movie. After the movie went back for dessert, which was also great. Only complaint, at dessert it was so loud I could hardly hear my wife; I am partially deaf in one ear so initially didn't say anything, but after we left and my wife said she... More

A friend and I recently had a business lunch at Cafe Roma... Neither of us had been there in years and my last experience wasn't so great. The atmosphere is nice though a bit on the cold side. Staff was not overly friendly but nice. Food was delicious! I had the garlic roasted tomato soup and penne past with meat... More

Server was not friendly and just plopped our plates down on the table. She obviously did not want to be there. Our food was just room temperature and looked like leftovers...bland taste. Disappointing since we had a decent experience a month ago. Try other choices downtown.

We ate here on a Thursday night. The hostess/manager/owner(?) greeted her guests uniquely with " may I help you? " rather than the standard " two for dinner? ". We were seated close to the kitchen and were promptly forgotten. The restaurant was about a 1/3 full with two servers but both walked by our table regularly. The hostess seated... More

We booked part of the restaurant for 25 of us for an 80th birthday party. It is in a great location in downtown Cleveland in a renovated old building. There was no parking issue at all in the evening, but I would imagine lunchtime during the week might be a little harder to find parking. The restaurant was very clean... More
