Via Roma has some very different dishes but all four that were tried were bland and tasteless. Service was very good and the BYOB perk was nice. But the object is to eat good food and this restaurant fell short

We eat here frequently and love the small trattoria atmosphere. Great service, friendly wait staff and the food is so good. Prices are always nice too since you can bring your own wine. Risotto is a specialty, but the fish and meat dishes are wonderful...More
