“Poor quality food, sloppy service. Nothing good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Food 2*
Service 2*

I can see no reason to go here at all. My wife and I thought the service was appalling with the girl being surly and somewhat lacking in communication skills. The food was plain, small and bleugh.

The drinks... well I left most of my hot chocolate which was just yuck.

Tip - go elsewhere.

“Great pasta - excellent chai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Loved the homemade tomato sauce. Excellent blend of spice in the chai. Would have liked a little more foam. The biscotti was a tasty little finish.

“More than just a coffee house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

When outside the neighborhood, I'm a Starbucks fan, but when I'm in the 'Hood, Caffe Roma is my favorite. It has a real "neighborhoody" feel. The coffee, sandwiches and service are all excellent.

“Delicious, delish, delizioso!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2008

The panini sandwiches are wonderful. For example, the “Lucchese” has turkey, provolone, and olive tapenade on great bread. The hot and cold pastas rock. There are salads and soups also.
The desserts are deadly ranging from pastries to gelato.
The coffee has the true excellent San Francisco quality.
The staff is friendly, but the service logistics are still being worked out.
Only negative is the dearth offerings on the vegetarian sandwich and Mediterraneo salad.
