“Delicious Italian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Been there twice now, and it's definitely our favorite Italian restaurant in California.

We were there with a group of family members, and the staff was very attentive, even though the restaurant is small.

“Love the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

We go here often and never have I walked away unhappy. Great food and great martini at a decent price. The place is small so get there early..the seats fill up fast.

“Local gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012 via mobile

What a nice surprise this was! You won't "stumble" into Roman Cucina. It's set back from the main street and draws a good crowd.

This location, due to its size, doesn't take reservations.

Try the appetizer of sautéed mushrooms. The pizzas are awesome, too.

This place is great for small groups, but the seating makes larger parties unmanageable. Great food!

“We love this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

Great service, great menu and very good food with generous portions. Monday Martini and Wine Wednesday with 1/2 price bottles of wine are crowded so make reservations. It is located behind Weinerschnitzel on Cabot Road just off La Paz. Parking is easy. This is a family place in the early evening and truly a local favorite. The lasagna, eggplant and chicken parmesan and pasta with meatballs are favorites.. They have low carb options and salad with an addition of chicken is a great option. We have never had room for dessert. Prices are very reasonable and the staff is anxious to please so let them know what it is you want. The food is simple and delicious and the hospitality is obvious.
