“Always reliably good quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Cafe Roma is great - has fabulous food - service is sometimes a bit off - staff hardly smile and take a long time to serve - but the food and cocktails are great and the owners are kind and friendly

“Sundays in the sun.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

If you're looking for haute cuisine or even the elusive "best pizzas in East Africa" then that's not why you should go to Cafe Roma on a Sunday afternoon...its the atmosphere..relax and enjoy it. The food is good though - try the chilli calamari starters if you like hot stuff. On Sundays they do a great Italian style roast pork or lamb - good and filling. I enjoy the pizzas. For my son and his friends, Cafe Roma is a blast. Its really surprising that kids get so much out of a sand pit and trampoline but they do. And its so much easier to get them to bed early on Sunday and ready for school on Monday after a "work out" on the Cafe Roma trampoline! So relax, chat and try the pimms.

“just brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

A place I frequented at least once a week, the best cannelloni I have ever tasted.
First Tuesday of every month Dan,Tash & team host a seafood evening with their famous Singapore Crab or jumbo prawns flown in directly from the coast. A great atmosphere in a shaded courtyard with a gift shop. Just brilliant

“The best place for an afternoon with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We go here all the time so we can enjoy some reasonable food and our kids can have a great time playing in the sand pit and swings. Also pizza making for kids

“'Just Okay' is Being Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We recently tried Cafe Roma for the first time I was not really impressed. I had heard from other people that their pizzas are the best thing on the menu, but honestly you can go down the road to Palm Cafe and get just-as-good or better pizzas. I tried the veg lasanga and didn't enjoy it to much. My partner tried the Chicken Kiev and the center part of the chicken was raw...still mushy and pink raw.

Our server was nice but all the managers were walking around smoking and eating food from the kitchen.

Even with limited choices in Kampala we will probably not be back...too bad.
