“Finally Kochi got the Italian Touch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

Had to meet some friends in Kochi, so thought to try Roma for a quick lunch.

Well! The ambience was very nice, perhaps too good for Kochi people to understand. Menu is prepared with correct Italian terminology (compliments to the Chef), a young lady who did the service was very professional & approached the table to keep a company to a alone guest (since the restaurant was not very busy).

Pasta was al dente (the way I prefer) & the sauce was quite near to an Italian flavour.
Pity no wine was served due to some license issue, so had to enjoy the food with water only.
Price is just right and for sure will visit again with Italian friends to feel Italia in Kochi.

“Roma is simply 'superbo' !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

I must confess ..I had agreed to my son's suggestion to Italian dining last month with a lot of hesitation , but the moment we stepped in to the classy dining space with minimalistic yet comfy decor ,all doubts vanished ! we were warmly greeted by the ladies , and helped out with our orders without any condescending airs ( and we had a good laugh over our pronunciations )..we ordered 4 separate dishes , all good ,esp.the bolognaise was excellant !!

We enjoyed the food and ambience, and the staff went all out to make it a good experience. Being a hotel owner myself , I appreciate the training given to the local crew and the team effort. The only minor downside were the portion sizes .. we keralites are used to hearty dinners , and I know its fine dining and all, but might help to reconsider :-)

The front office staff were kind enough to appraise us of new dining club offers and proceeded to give us a grand tour of the rooms & facilities. Would definitely return & recommend to friends !
