Even once you dismiss the owner/employee written love letters (reviews) here, there is still an amount of affection for this place that I just dont get. I mean, first off; the prices are high. Especially when you consider the ambiance, which reminded me of a break room at a department store. The wife ordered a chicken salad panini ($9), comes... More

I enjoyed my meal at Roman's but thought that the sandwich was quite small for the amount of $$ it costed. Friendly staff but the food, while good, was not excellent.

Stopped by here for a sandwich. Lots of sandwich, burger and salad options that I've never heard of, so hard to choose just one! The staff was really friendly and helpful in helping us in what to order and in what else to do around the city. The service was fast and the portion was big. The environment is just... More

Very nice, very efficient, and a good price performer... We had the lunch special which was a grilled cheese and tomato with bacon and spinach Panini which was delicious!

We are very busy at the office on Saturday so we order in from Romans and it is always a hit. Very creative offerings and packed with delicous flavors...

Their sandwiches are great, but a little pricey. 9.50 for a sandwich seems like a lot to spend, soup is consistent and always good. Service is great.

Asheville is a hub of local food friendly restaurants. We chose Roman's based on Trip Advisor reviews and our interest in "eating local and fresh." Located right across from the St. Lawrence Basilica, Roman's offered a variety of items on the menu. We ordered two 1/2 paninis ($5 each) which came with a pickle & our choice of bagged chips....

Great place located on the north end of Haywood St., still in the atmosphere of downtown but away from all of the chaos and crowds. We were able to sit outside on the front porch due to beautiful weather but there was plenty of inside seating available as well. Beautiful views of the St. Lawrence Basilica across the street.

This is a great place for sandwiches and lunch. The cafe is clean and the staff friendly and efficient. I had the pomegranate and goats cheese chicken sandwich and it was delicious. I just happened to be walking past and I was glad I stopped in.

Great place for lunch while downtown. Had the BBQ Burger which was from locally sourced grass-fed beef. Superb sauce and meat. Beautiful basilica (deserving of its high TA rating as a place to see) is just steps away.
