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.

I just love the service here! The wait staff is always willing to assist with dietary needs and the menu. Today the chef was able to substitute fresh grilled vegetable for the pasta in the Shrimp & Mozzarella special. I never seem to order from the menu because the specials are so wonderful! Must try the Limoncello Martini made with... More

We are lucky to have this restaurant in our small town. It's right downtown (like Five Points Square which is also awesome) and very cozy. It's not as fancy as Bald Head Bistro, but the food is fantastic. They always have something new each time I visit, and I've never not loved a meal there.

This is our favorite restaurant in Cleveland. The food is excellent and I have never had a bad meal. Reservations are needed for weekends. The restaurant is small and it is loud when at capacity so we prefer to go for lunch or week nights.

Cafe Roma is one of our favorite restaurants in Cleveland and we were glad to go back after over a year since our last visit. Two of our family got the tomato basil soup and it was delicious. My wife ordered the tortellini carbonara, my son ordered Pollo Parmesan and I got the linguine alla pescatori with a red sauce.... More

We have dined here many times over the years and have received consistently great food, good wine and excellent service. Whether you drop in for lunch or have reservations for dinner, it's always a wonderful experience.
