Restaurant with character

In a world of chain restaurants, this unique setting has loads of character with the brick walls and tall ceiling in a historic building. I'd go just for the atmosphere, and perhaps a drink at the bar. For the food, it was just OK. No one could eat the over salted fingerlng potatoes, but the... read more

We did not have a reservation but they smiled and worked us in on a Saturday evening. It was a very pretty, romantic Cafe and the staff was friendly and very helpful. The food was very good and I would eat there again.

Great food and service....never had a bad meal or experience here. If you have the time take a stroll in downtown Cleveland before or after dinner. Just about everything on the menu is good but the Salmon is really good.

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 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
