I love everything about Cafe Roma, and left to my own devices, I would eat there everyday The atmosphere is cozy-chic, the servers are friendly and efficient, and the food is delicious. Much of the food is farm to table, and all of it is prepared with skill and care. It is a wonderful blend of high end food and... More

The dishes are authentic Italian which is hard to find at any restaurant. You have so many great dishes to choose it makes it hard to decide. The service is wonderful and efficient, it was a wonderful dining experience.

This is on the fine dinning side but great value for the dinner. They make some wonderful dishes. This place offers specials that are not on the menu and those are the meals to try.

Four of us had an excellent dinner last week at Cafe Roma. The server was attentive and efficient, and the food was great. A standout was the dessert I had - homemade basil mint ice cream in a pecan cookie of sorts. Ridiculously good.

Quaint and elegant atmosphere with amazing food. Cafe Roma is one of the best Italian restaurants in the region. Well worth the drive to Cleveland, TN from Chattanooga. The meals are pricey, and everything is a la carte, but the portions are generous and fantastically delicious. I had the Penne Bolognese while my wife had the Tortellini Roma with a... More

Lasagna was excellent, but the arrancini with Pomadoro sauce was to die for!!!! Will try to stop whenever we travel north for sure! You could open a restaurant in Pensacola---gorgeous... More

Just stumbled on this great hidden gem in downtown Cleveland, TN. Food was wonderful as was the service! It's in the historic downtown of Cleveland which is a wonderful little area.

Had lunch here today. I ate the spinach salad and bruschetta. I loved the bruschetta with grapes and walnuts. The salad was good. My friends enjoyed their panini pizza and portabella sandwhich. Wonderful atmosphere and staff. Good location. I was disappointed in the bread pudding which was unevenly heated. Could have used ice cream. Friend who ate tiramisu liked it.... More

Nice to get away from the usual Is it Greek? Is it Italian? mish mash you find just about everywhere in town. My husband enjoyed his Pollo Cafe Roma. But the star was the Tortellini in Rose sauce. We shared a tiramisu for desert which was almost as good as my mom's. Our waiter, Whitney was both knowledgeable and spot... More
