Having previously enjoyed a meal at a large gathering we decided to celebrate our anniversary at the restaurant. The service was friendly, yet professional. The food was superb, allowing bothe my husband and I to choose varying menus on an Italian theme. the food was fresh, tasty and more than generous in portion size. The atmosphere was, considering it was a Thursday night, buzzing and relaxing. We will definitely be using this restaurant again. Contrary to previous reviews we found, on both ocassions we have visited, the food to be authentically tasty and genuinely priced.

The service was even more friendly and charming than our previous visit, without being too intrusive, we were left alone unless we asked or a glass was empty.
The seasonal dish of asparagus was really good, and as usual the pasta was too.
Remains good value, and the fact that on several occasions when attempting to book for that evening on a Saturday they have been fully booked, suggests plenty of others think the same.
While we didn't have room for dessert, it appeared that the choice and quality of this course had improved since our last visit.
Recommended and will definitely be returning.

Of particular note, the Specials board offered a warm avocado dish that was a welcome (and arguiably off-beat?) credit to their sincere service with much appreciated originality on a cold winter's day. Also, the risotto was lovingly perfect within an overall delightful dining experience.

The food and atmosphere at Antica Roma are second to none and the staff are brilliant. Whether you want a Saturday night meal for two or Sunday lunch for the family, you will not be disappointed at Antica Roma.

I have eaten here before and it has been quite good but this time i was very disappointed. Four of us had Scallops for a starter which were on the specials board. All I can say is whoever cooked them had no idea how too. They still had the roe on which I do not like I know that is a matter of taste but they were very tough and over cooked with a horrible dressing and a bit of salad just not good at all. My main course of lobster and pasta I have eaten here a couple of times before was ok but seemed to have increased in price by about £4. A disappointing evening food wise.
