Very pricey for what you get. Egg plant was good but expensive.Service was good, and bread was good. No refills on coffee or soda. Hubby did get free refill on ice tea, but they did not give me a refill on decaf. How much does it cost for a cup of decaf? Portions were small and all was ala carte--had... More

B&B room's hand-written notebook from prior guests suggested Via Roma. Most were anniversary or honeymooners so we gave it a shot on our 1 yr wedding anniversary dinner. Runner-up: Rolando's, which we did at lunch next day - definitely happy with that order. Romantic lighting and atmosphere, staff very courteous. Wife loved it! House cabernet was much better than anticipated... More

Very fine dinning. Excellent ambiance. Best steak in Arkansas. A great place to take your spouse for a romantic dinner.

Went here for our anniversary based primarily off tripadvisor reviews. My wife likes Italian food much more than me, but we both very much enjoyed the meal. It has white tablecloths so I felt a bit underdressed in my jeans, but felt welcome and quickly figured out that I had more class than many of the dressed up folks eating... More

A group of 4 ladies spend a Girlfriend Week in HS every year at our condo. We have been to Via Roma twice before and the food was excellent, this year it was only good. It was recommended by my massage therapist a couple years ago. (What is a girlfriend week without a spa day?) The salads were ok. The... More

We decided to try this restaurant after 4 different people recommended it as the best Italian food in Hot Springs. The main restaurant is cozy with 6 booths and a couple tables. We learned it also has a banquet room that can seat about 50. It is casual / romantic with Italian music playing in the background. Our waiter was... More

My husband and I ate there a while back and it was very, very good. Best Italian food I've ever eaten. We will be back as soon as we can get a babysitter for the evening!!

My wife and I went to this restaurant with high hopes, based on several recommendations. We were told to try the filet-best ever. The restaurant was very pleasant, staff professional and courteous-all good so far. We ordered the steak special-assured that it was wonderful. When our steaks arrived, as we tried to cut into them, we could hear and feel... More

Via Roma is a very popular restaurant, especially on Friday nights. Make a reservation! Great ambience and customer service. Wide variety of items in the menu. Food was delicious and the closest to traditional Italian I have found in the area. On one note, you should understand this is not a fast food restaurant. Enjoy your evening and relax.
