“Genuine Italian food and drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

I eat at Roma at least once a week and also buy a few things from the deli to suppliement my shopping.
The food in the cafe is excellent and always fresh. I love the proper Italian coffee.
Also the house wine is excellent, both red and white. I always have a bottle of each in the house!
Today I had a cream cheese and smoked salmon bagel and a latte for my breakfast. As always, it was excellent. My favourite main meal is the salami calzone, you can even buy them to take away!

“Great - Every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Perfect place for a quick coffee or light lunch in Whitefield. Nice selection on the menu, and they have kindly produced mini antipasti plates for my little boy's meal, or boxed up half his pasta to take home when he's not made it all the way through.

Staff are very helpful and friendly - we often tie in lunch with visiting the deli counter, which is very well stocked. I like the 'hot' selection on the specials menu - the spetzatino (hopefully spelled right) being a particular favourite. The garlic bread with cheese is also fab - giant portions, so be prepared to share (or not!) It can get quite busy, and so you need to have a bit of patience then - but overall, very good experiences and we always go back for more.

“Authentic deli with great products and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Try to visit the deli atleast once a week. It is just off the metrolink station so very easy to get to. Thry have a massive choice of olives, meats, cheeses, ice cream, pasta.. you name it.

The cafe looks great. Fresh pizzas and sandwiches. I really need to try because if they are even nearly as good as the deli products, i know it will be a treat! Staff are so friendly and will do anything to help.

“Roma :: The Best Italian Delicatessan and Coffee Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

If you are ever in the Whitefield, Bury or Prestwich area please try Roma. It is easy to find by the Metro and Bus terminal and adjoining Morrisons. It is a family run concern and the quality of the food is excellent. As well as serving meals and snacks the shop has lovely items imported from Italy. Just try it and you will keep returning.
